Logan Paul apparently really likes pain because the controversial YouTuber is looking to go toe-to-toe with UFC champion Conor McGregor. Following a match against KSI and another rematch on the way, the younger Paul brother has his sights set on a bigger enemy - all for those YouTube likes. 

The YouTuber is gearing up for his upcoming KSI rematch on November 9th and he seems pretty convinced that he's going to win despite not really having anything to back that up. Though trash talk is nothing new in the world of fisticuffs, Conor McGregor is not someone you want to be hurling insults at all willy nilly like. 

Paul shared his new goal over on an episode of the True Geordie Podcast that he hosts with his brother Jake and co-host Mike Majlak. In the episode, the younger Paul bro says that he wants to be not only the biggest entertainer in the world, but also wants to take that fight to the next level. 

He also swears he's thought his UFC plan through, adding “I’ve played this scenario out in my head a hundred times. Imma beat JJ, imma do my first fight in the UFC, imma win, imma smoke this f**king dude whoever it is and then I’m going to be like yo, I think I’m good, that was fun, and then I’m going to get a huge bag placed in front of me and be like, f**k bro, I could use another Rolex.”

Despite not knowing any of the martial arts that McGregor himself knows, I for one would look forward to seeing a little sense be knocked into the YouTube sensation. Plus, a knockout would get clicks, just saying.

Logan Paul seems committed to keeping the spotlight firmly on Some Very Questionable Decisions despite all of the controversies that have followed him through the years. Following the Japan suicide backlash regarding the suicide forest, his abhorrent behavior whilst traveling overseas, and his apparent lack of regard for anything even remotely decent for a few additional clicks, it looks like he's making a pivot away from poorly timed jokes and is going in a new path swinging. Literally.
