Paul, 24, teased his move to MMA earlier this month by sharing footage of him practicing kicks, but UFC bantamweight prospect Sean O’Malley believes The Problem Child will struggle to be successful in this sport.

In a recent episode of Sugar Show Podcasts, O’Malley said: “It took a lot of time [to get good at MMA].

“It will take longer to do what he did in boxing in MMA.

Boxing, he does it so fast, that’s impressive. He took down Tyron Woodley. I mean, that’s crazy.

“Like, that’s pretty crazy, but to be in MMA and be successful, that’s on another level.

“There are so many things that you have to do well.”

Despite believing that Paul will take some time to become proficient in MMA, O’Malley refuses to rule out the former Disney star’s opportunity to do so.

The 27-year-old continued: “He is motivated, and. he has heart, work ethic. That has been proven. I will look. “

Paul was recently given the opportunity to compete in Bellator, with president Scott Coker saying MMA Junkie: “If you want to be in MMA, we’d be happy to do that.

“Think about this: He didn’t say, ‘I’m going to take the train here. I will take the train there. ‘

“He’s going to one of the best gyms on the planet, where Khabib is, where Daniel Cormier is still training, where Cain Velasquez is teaching there, and he’s going to step into an environment where he will grow, and he already has a wrestling background.
