LOGAN PAUL CALLS OUT CONOR MCGREGOR & CM PUNK FOR UFC FIGHT
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.
TMZ caught up with the duo in an airport and asked Logan on who he plans to call out after his bout with KSI. Logan, who mentioned that he’s agreed to 2 fights with KSI himself, said that he would like to fight in the UFC after that because he’s been ‘wrestling my[his] whole life’.
Upon being asked for more specifics, Logan said that he would be interested in fighting former WWE Superstar and UFC Welterweight CM Punk. Jake, on the other hand, chirped up rather unexpectedly with Conor McGregor’s name.
McGregor, of course, is preparing for a UFC Lightweight Title fight against undefeated Dagestani phenom Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 on October 6th.
The brothers also said that they would be able to take Conor McGregor down if they fought him two on one.
