Logan Paul Claims He Almost Sparked A Restaurant Brawl Between Conor McGregor And Khabib Nurmagomedov
| Last updated
Logan Paul reckons he was responsible for almost igniting a brawl between arguably two of the biggest sports stars to ever walk the face of the earth.
That's right, the YouTuber-turned-boxer claims a simple complication in a restaurant booking almost ended in tears when UFC legends Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov came close to being on opposite tables.
Thankfully, according to Logan, their bookings were just 10 minutes apart meaning complete and utter chaos was miraculously avoided.
And, as you can probably imagine, Logan made a big song and dance about it.
"I was almost responsible for a massive altercation between two of the biggest combat sports stars on the planet," Logan said on his IMPAULSIVE Podcast.
"I hit up my person [at the restaurant] and said 'can you get me a table for my chef Eric, plus three?'
"I didn't think anything of it. But I got a text the next morning saying 'yo, Eric showed up with Conor McGregor' because he was cooking for Conor in his camp.
"I don't know why I didn't make that connection.
"She was like 'yeah, Khabib was here 10 minutes before McGregor walked in'. 10 minutes!"
McGregor and Khabib's heated rivalry is pretty well documented.
The two mixed martial artists have been exchanging pleasantries for years ever since their fierce UFC grudge match which, of course, culminated in Khabib diving into the crowd to fight one of McGregor's teammates.
Since then, both fighters have taken pot shots at each other in various interviews or on social media - although most of the below-the-belt comments seem to be coming from the Irishman's camp of late.
To put it simply, their hatred of one another is real and you wouldn't want to put the two hot heads in the same room.
Well, it seems Logan came agonisingly close to doing just that.
He went on to add that the staff members at the fancy restaurant were "flipping the f**k out" when they realised the names written on their 'reserved' table stickers.
