Professional mixed martial artist Sage Northcutt has expressed an interest in getting into the octagon with popular YouTuber Logan Paul.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, Northcutt said that their potential match “could be massive,” after Uijah Faber stated that he’d like to see Paul fight a legitimate UFC fighter such as Northcutt.

The MMA fighter seems enthusiastic to turn the potential match-up into reality, stating that both Paul’s fans and his own audience would enjoy the spectacle.

He didn’t underestimate Paul’s strength, however, citing the YouTuber’s high school wrestling career and boxing form during his fight with KSI.

“I never underestimate a guy who believes in himself,” Northcutt admitted. “I would like to see myself fight him.”

Northcutt’s fans apparently want to see him go up against a wrestler, to boot. With Paul’s experience in the sport, their match could prove to be an interesting one – but Northcutt mentioned that he’d fight using any style Paul wanted.

“I’d be willing to have a boxing match with him, or an MMA match, whatever he’d like,” Northcutt conceded. “He said he would like to fight in the UFC, so I think I’m not too big for him. I think it could be a great matchup.”

Paul expressed an interest in joining the UFC prior to his boxing match with fellow YouTuber KSI. In another interview with TMZ, Paul stated that he wanted to fight a UFC fighter after his upcoming rematch, citing CM Punk as his desired opponent, specifically.

Paul has not yet responded to a possible fight with Northcutt, but his determination to join the sport leaves further developments up to speculation.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
