Logan Paul perfectly summarised everybody’s mood after witnessing a brutal KO at the Slap Fighting Championship.
The YouTube turned boxing star is hosting the event with famous Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and was on hand to witness the ‘absurd’ scene.
The event is being held at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio, and Maksymilian Lesniak was the man to produce the emphatic slap, taking down his opponent Nikolas Toth.
Lesniak, also known as ‘Mad Maz’ sent Toth flying backwards.
In a video posted on his social media platform, Paul was absolutely gobsmacked about the ferocity of his slap.
Incredibly, the contest was an open and shut case with ‘Mad Maz’ winning the contest with the first hit.
Toth was then taken away by medics and eventually recovered.
On Twitter upon seeing the slap, Paul wrote: “This is absurd. and happening right now #SlapFightingChampionship.”

Prior to the start of the championship, Paul spoke about how he was honoured to be hosting the event alongside Schwarzenegger.
“It makes me so happy to be here right now. My dad took me to the Arnold 10 years ago. It’s so cool to be back here hosting Slap Fighting Championship,” he said.
“I was with the fighters yesterday. These guys are the toughest, burliest most brawny people you’ve ever seen in your life.
“This event is absolutely insane. Who knows what’s going to happen? Tomorrow, people are getting knocked out via slaps to the face.
“We have five big fights, featuring Koa for the super heavyweight championship against a 6’ 1” 310-lb polish dude named ‘Zales’ who is undefeated. Trust me, you don’t want to miss it. This is going to be crazy. Absolutely absurd.
“I’m a grassroots slap fighting fan. I was one of the first to see it going viral on YouTube. These men are behemoths. They already have marks on their faces and welts. It’s like they’ve been practicing being hit.”
