Logan Paul has spent the better part of a year attempting to transform himself into a fighting machine, but in a recent vlog on YouTube, the star showed he was nowhere near the level of undefeated UFC fighter Paulo Costa.

Paul and his crew headed out to Las Vegas to catch UFC 248 of March 7 and while there, he took some time to spar with professional fighter Paulo Costa.

While the undefeated UFC fighter chose to forgo any protection, Paul wisely donned some headgear – a wise choice based on what appeared to happen during the session.

“He’s not a human, he’s a bear, he’s a 13-0 undefeated UFC fighter,” Paul said, introducing his opponent. “I don’t think he liked the way I looked at him at dinner last night or something, but it’s a good thing I’m a professional boxer now. Who’s 0-1, goddamnit.”

The YouTube star actually seemed to get some decent shots in during the boxing portion, but it was all overshadowed by one massive right hand from Costa that found the mark.

Paul hit the ground faster than you can say “like and subscribe,” and even appeared to have earned a nice shiner on his left eye as a result.

Most human beings would probably also get knocked out by Costa, but to his credit, he managed to get back on his feet just a few seconds after waking up.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer continued to hold his own while grappling with the Brazilian mixed martial arts fighter, who even seemed to be impressed with his performance.

“90% of guys who go train MMA have good technique, but not hard spirit, not big heart you know?” Costa told Paul when they were done. “You have both.”

Most recently, Logan has been challenged to a fight by former NFL star Antonio Brown and even though talks have supposedly broken down, the YouTuber is apparently getting in plenty of practice.

It’s a beautiful thing when the internet comes together to bring about iconic memes. Lately, Kim Kardashian is the inspiration behind a hilarious trend after she tweeted about her lavish birthday party. 

On October 27, Kim revealed to the world how she was celebrating her 40th birthday in style through a thread on Twitter, filled with images from the gathering.

She wrote, “I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.”

And she also acknowledged her own privilege, adding “I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is”

But one particular tweet in the thread found a whole new life of its own after parodies exploded on the platform. The tweet read, “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.”

Twitter found it hilarious, providing their own versions of images alongside the text from the viral tweet – from different impressions of “private islands” to ominous depictions of the “inner circle”.  Scroll down to see some of the best parodies so far.

After 2 weeks of multiple health screens…

Drag Race’s Lemon inspired the ultimate nostalgia by pasting the tweet alongside an image from Club Penguin of the crowded iceberg from the game.

Journalist Sophie Thompson went so far as to use a screengrab from Midsommar, implying that a seemingly innocent getaway could turn into a horror movie – it is spooky season after all.

Attorney and author Rabia O’Chaudry continued the theme of implied violence with a screengrab from Game of Thrones, taking the narrative to a whole other level.

Comedian Katy Brand had the genius idea of using an image from the Wicker Man.

Internet personality Blessed Madonna compared Kim Kardashian’s get-together to Fyre Festival with this incredible image of one of the meals given to attendees at the infamous event.

Other tweets referred to popular games

Author Desus Nice shared the Contraband map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

ESPN Esports pasted the tweet alongside an image of the Hyrule Temple from Super Smash Bros.

We had to include a shameless plug: we added Kings Canyon, the original map in Apex legends.

Twitter is nowhere near finished with these amazing parodies, and will surely keep going until all the options are exhausted. Watch this space.
