But it was slammed by UFC boss Dana White, who argued no matter how popular a celebrity is, it does not mean they should be afforded big fights.
“That wasn’t a f***ing boxing match. Like I said before, there’s always going to be a market for that kind of stuff,” White told UFC Arabia.
“There’s always going to be people that are willing to put down $50 to watch that kind of stuff. That’s so far away (from what we do).
“Think about this — imagine if Kim Kardashian wanted to fight Amanda Nunes. How big do you think that fight would be? It would be huge.
“It would be the biggest (event) but give me a f***ing break.”
Kardashian dwarfs Paul online with 227m followers to 20.2m on Instagram and 69.9m on Twitter to Paul’s 6m.
Nunes, a two-weight champion who is considered the greatest women fighter in UFC history, quickly latched on to the UFC president’s comments and called Kardashian out.
She tweeted: “Hey @KimKardashian let’s do this? lol.”
White has distanced himself from working with Logan, 26, and his brother Jake, 24, who have both forged prize-fighting careers.
And he doubled down on criticism of the fans who paid to watch Mayweather’s showcase fight.
White said: “I’m not trying to s*** on these other guys.
“Listen, if you’ve got people that are stupid enough to spend that kind of money, you deserve to take those dummies’ money. They deserve it.
“The guys who went out and fought and got you to pay $50, they deserve your money. You’re stupid.”
