YouTube star Logan Paul is more than an internet celeb: the entertainer joined the world of professional boxing for his grudge match against fellow content creator KSI, and now, it looks like his sights are set even higher.

Following his first match with KSI in August 2018, Paul pleaded with UFC president Dana White for a chance at stepping in the octagon – a proposal that White claimed would get the YouTuber “murdered.”

It’s not just Paul who feels he’d stand a fighting chance in professional MMA, though: KSI likewise encouraged his opponent to take on former wrestling pro and MMA fighter CM Punk after his win at their 2019 boxing rematch.

KSI and Logan Paul settled their grudge in the boxing ring on November 9, resulting in a win for KSI by split-decision.

TMZ Sports caught up with Paul to get his thoughts on this possibility, asking him how he felt about his chances against the pro.

“I think I would destroy CM Punk if I’m being honest” the YouTuber confidently answered. “I don’t know if anyone would disagree with that. …not think [I could beat him]. I know I could.”

Despite his boxing loss, Logan Paul is confident in his chances against MMA fighters like CM Punk and Dillon Danis.

CM Punk isn’t the only MMA fighter who’s had beef with the Paul brothers, either: Dillon Danis, known for his history with Team 10 founder Jake Paul, was also brought up in TMZ Sports’ interview, to which Paul had a scathing reply.

“To be honest, I’d fight Dillon any day,” he continued. “I mean, Dillon, you’re a f***ing p***y. You’re a lot of talk. No one in the MMA community likes you. You’ve got a few Twitter followers who are on your d***, but that’s it. I can guarantee you that if you came over to the YouTube space, we’d f*** you up.”

While Danis has yet to respond directly to Paul’s callout, the fighter retweeted TMZ’s interview on the subject, as well as several memes regarding the YouTuber’s split-decision loss against KSI.

Despite Paul’s loss, it doesn’t look like “The Maverick” is giving up his dreams of professional fighting anytime soon: and considering his knack at picking a fight, there’s no telling who he’ll face off with next.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
