MMA Fighter CM Punk is not over Logan Paul’s controversial Aokigahara forest vlog.
Logan Paul’s efforts to become a professional fighter don’t seem to be working. Another athlete has spoken out publicly to reject his request to join the YouTuber in the ring. But this time it isn’t just because he’s a digital celebrity. CM Punk’s reason is a little bit more personal.
“I’m not fighting Logan Paul. I think this [Mixed Martial Arts] is one of the avenues where people will be like, ‘I don’t even know who Logan Paul is.’ Logan Paul is apparently a popular guy, but it’s not in any kind of avenue that I drive my car on. the only thing I know about him is he’s the guy who filmed the dead body in the Japanese suicide forest,” he shared with MMAFighting’s Marc Raimondi .
Like many, he was offended by Logan’s video which showed of the dead body of a suicide victim. He went on to say that he wouldn’t want to devote any mental energy on Logan, which would be required in order to prepare for the fight.
“I’m not that into sharing that much of my time and my headspace and my life with somebody that did something that I feel is so reprehensibly disrespectful to the people of Japan, who I love.” He goes on to say, “They’ll always have a special place in my heart. So no, I’m not fighting him. I have no interest to.”
Once news broke that there was no way in hell CM Punk would step in the ring with Logan, the YouTuber had to respond.
of course he won’t https://t.co/lJAHNKXcMT

It seems Logan has moved on quickly after being publicly dissed by CM Punk. He’s now challenging “Creed II” actor Michael B. Jordan to a fight on the latest episode of his ‘Impaulsive’ podcast claiming that he was inspired after seeing his film.
“Michael B. Jordan, this is my official challenge. Come over to my house and spar one day, I’ll come to you, whatever it is – I wanna make it happen. I really do.”
