Podcaster and UFC Commentator Joe Rogan has praised Logan Paul for his fighting technique on a recent episode of his podcast, ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’.

Rogan was joined by professional surfer Kelly Slater when the pair began to discuss the UFC, and the possibility of Logan Paul someday competing inside the Octagon, especially after former professional wrestler CM Punk being granted the opportunity to fight in the UFC on two occasions.

“They were talking about Logan Paul fighting in the UFC, and Dana White said he would get killed,” began Rogan. “Logan Paul is way better, way better, than CM Punk!”

Rogan continued: “Logan Paul actually knows how to fight. He had a boxing match with that other YouTube guy, but I was watching him throw punches in that fight, and this is a guy who knows how to throw a punch. His punches looked good.”

“He gassed out, he got a little tired, first real fight like that. But he has a background in wrestling, and he actually can punch. Like I was watching him hit this guy, that’s a guy who actually knows how to throw a punch.

“He knows distance and timing and he knows how to connect. He doesn’t look like Canelo Alvarez or anything crazy, but he looks like a guy who can throw a punch. You had fucking CM Punk fight, this guy is way better than him,” concluded the stand-up comedian.

While UFC President Dana White seems dead set on not allowing Paul to step into the Octagon, former UFC Welterweight Sage Northcutt has expressed interest in taking on the YouTube star.

Unfortunately, that fight will likely have to wait, as Paul is set for a boxing rematch against fellow YouTuber JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji in  2019.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
