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.

Myth justifies surprising decision to unfollow everyone on social media

Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani is taking a new approach on social media, as the popular TSM content creator has revealed why he felt it was time to “experiment” by unfollowing everyone on all of his accounts.

Myth is one of the most popular content creators on the internet. The 21-year-old boasts over seven million followers on both Twitch and Instagram, with another four million subscribers on YouTube as well. He’s grown a massive community with his energetic vibes and impressive gameplay, but Myth just made a drastic change.

Across all social media accounts, the content creator has now wiped the slate clean. He no longer follows any streamer pals, no business contacts, or anyone in between. Myth follows a grand total of zero accounts across all of his platforms.

Why make such a sudden change? Myth explained it all in a series of tweets on December 2. In a difficult year as it is, he felt it was the right time to “experiment with having zero people followed across [his] social media sites.”

One of the main factors behind this decision was to stop himself from “comparing” to others. It can be easy to see idyllic Instagram posts, for instance, and feel a little down in the dumps by comparison. Everyone can empathize with that experience these days. So in order to block it out, his social media is now wiped clean.

The current global crisis certainly didn’t help either. “I’ve had some of the loneliest moments of my life,” he explained. “Social media doesn’t make that feeling any better, at least with the way I currently use it. It just ends up making me feel like other people got it better”

Obviously, most social media personalities are often sharing the highlights in their lives. Rarely do we see our favorite content creators truly breaking down that barrier and sharing everything. Most of the time, we only see what they want us to see. Myth is well aware of this and understands “that’s not the full reality of things.”

Despite this, it’s still a “really draining mindset to have,” he explained. “I wanna eradicate it.” In light of his transparency, countless others reached out to commend his decision. 

“You’re an amazing streamer,” Dakotaz followed up. “Do whatever you gotta do.”

While Myth has unfollowed everyone, he wanted to stress that he’ll still be active and interacting with his fanbase. “I can still see and appreciate comments and messages,” he added.

Don’t expect Myth to keep his accounts this clean forever though. It may be a solid reprieve during this chaotic year, but even he joked that in “six months [he’ll] definitely be back” to his usual ways.
