Lots of people that are considered “celebrities” nowadays have talked about fighting in MMA. There’s rapper Wiz Khalifa, who might actually be a real celebrity. There’s the self-professed “King of Instagram”, Dan Blizerian. And now there’s this clown who does extremely tasteless and controversial things to make money on YouTube. His name is Logan Paul.
This guy, who gained infamy for stunts like filming a corpse in Japan’s “suicide forest”, encouraging kids to eat Tide Pods, and tasering dead animals, is apparently important enough for TMZ to be chasing around (on a slow day, I assume). And now that he has a boxing match set up with some other YouTube personality that I don’t care about, he believes that he could handle a bigger challenge. That would be a fight in the UFC.
Youtube sensations Logan Paul and Jake Paul, who fight fellow Youtubers KSI and his brother Deji on August 25th in amateur boxing bouts, have set their sights on a fight in the UFC following that.
