Logan Paul Wants To Commit Suicide In The UFC

A beef has started between Logan Paul and Dana White and I just threw up in my mouth a little.

You may remember Paul boxing with fellow YouTube idiot KSI. The fight ended in a draw, but most who watched the fight gave it to KSI. Going six rounds — well, he went two rounds and then gassed — in an “amateur” boxing bout has led Paul to believe he could cut it in the UFC.

Sage Northcutt was quick to respond. For those that don’t know Sage, he’s UFC-famous in that he looks like a million bucks and got pushed to the moon, but doesn’t have the skills to back it up. Yet.

UFC president Dana White also chimed in (via BJPenn.com).

“Look, I have no hate for him,” Dana White said of Logan Paul during a recent media scrum. “Look at the business that guy has built on YouTube and the number of pay-per-views they did on YouTube. They did 800,000 [buys] at 10 bucks for two guys that fight fans have never heard of.

“So he’s built a great business for himself and good for him. But trust me, don’t play around over here. You will get hurt.”

Paul came back with a very logical point.

UFC let CM Punk, someone who had less amateur experience than Paul, fight in the company. TWICE! He was destroyed both times, but the UFC made money off of him, so what do they care?

White tried to defend allowing CM Punk to fight.

“I know everyone is going to say, ‘You let CM Punk fight in the UFC,’” White explained. “CM Punk is one of the greatest guys you could ever meet. He’s a super good guy, he’s very passionate about the sport, and he put his reputation and everything on the line to come fight here, and I respect him for it. Obviously it didn’t work out for him, but he’s got a lot of heart and a lot of balls to do that.”

…So, why can’t Paul do the same thing? Never mind the fact that he’s a douchebag — so is Punk, but don’t tell Dana — isn’t he willing to put his reputation on the line to fight?

The UFC is about making money. Like or not, putting Paul in a fight would make them a ton of money. Which is why it’ll probably happen by the end of next year. Hope ya’ll are ready.
