Dan Bilzerian Says He’s Taking Time Off From Partying And Considering Training For An MMA Fight
Dan Bilzerian is a 36-year-old multi-millionaire who lives a bachelor party lifestyle 7 days a week, 365 a year. Many of us cube monkeys scroll through his Instagram on an idle Tuesday morning in utter resentment as we see him wakeboaring in Paradise off the back of a yacht with two dozen scantily clad women giddily cheering him on. I went canoeing with a girl once in a polluted river, so we’re pretty much even. Didn’t even wear life vests. Bad boy life.
Contrary to popular belief, there is more to life than partying with hot chicks every waking hour for a decade. Bilzerian is realizing that, and his next challenge could be in a cage. Bilzerian trains regularly at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas and recently told MMAjunkie Radio that a fight may be on the radar after he crosses a couple more bucket list activities off the list.
“Thailand’s on there. I want to go surfing in Fiji. I want to go heli-skiing in Alaska,” Bilzerian said. “I have wanted to do (an MMA fight). I’ll be 37 this year, so I better do it pretty fucking soon if I want to do it. It’s tough nowadays because these fucking kids are training from the time they’re 6 or 8 – by the time they get in there, they’re so well-versed.”
“I’d like to compete, but I’ve got to do a real camp,” he said. “I don’t want to go in there and fucking half-ass it. I’ve never half-assed anything in my life, so if I’m going to do it, I really want to do it. Right now, I’ve actually been taking a little bit of time off from the partying and the crazy shit. So it wouldn’t be bad.”
MMA would salivate at a culturally ubiquitous name like Bilzerian taking his chances in the octagon. The dude would have to lock the gym doors though, to avoid distractions…
