Bodybuilder and social media personality Bradley Martyn has earned the attention of the MMA community after suggesting that he could handle himself in a street fight with some of combat sports’ top stars.
Standing at 6’3″ tall and weighing around 250 pounds, Martyn is undoubtedly an impressive specimen, but it appears that the fitness guru has mistaken his size for an ability to compete with some of the best mixed martial artists in the world. Recently, Martyn suggested that he could go toe-to-toe with Nate Diaz in a street fight and even accepted a challenge from former UFC and reigning ONE flyweight world champion, Demetrious Johnson.
Martyn took things one step further when he was asked about a potential street fight with former UFC middleweight world champion, Alex Pereira.
Wanting to know the scenario, Martyn asked if the bout would be in America or Brazil and the specific setting as if that would make a difference against one of the most dangerous strikers on the planet.
“Yeah, I don’t know man. Honestly, it depends,” Martyn said of his chances in the fantasy matchup. “It depends on like, the weather and other things. The wind. Yeah, for sure.”
Just to make it clear, the answer Martyn was looking for is, ‘No.’
Logan Paul is Ready to Humble Bradley Martyn
Flyweight great Demetrious Johnson isn’t the only fighter out there that hopes to humble Bradley Martyn in the near future. Social media sensation and WWE Superstar Logan Paul recently took aim at Martyn during an episode of his IMPAULSIVE podcast, offering Martyn the opportunity to come to Puerto Rico and step in the ring for a sparring session.
“Bradley, you gotta be humbled. That’s what you need. It doesn’t sound like you’ve had it yet and I will invite you to Puerto Rico to spar with me to be humbled…Bradley, if you’re serious, I’m inviting you to Puerto Rico to promote my next upcoming fight and I will spar you and I will f*cking humble your a**,” Paul said
Clearly, Martyn’s clickbait content is starting to get under the skin of some combat sports community members. The question is, will Martyn put his money where his mouth is or continue to write checks with his mouth that his a** can’t catch?
