Dennis Bermudez eyes future as YouTube star following Guinness World Record

July 5, 2016 10:11 am by Evan Bell

TUF 14 fighter & #9 ranked featherweight Dennis Bermudez recently added a new title to his name, Guinness World Record Holder. Bermudez broke a world record for drinking a liter of lemon juice through a straw, doing so in just 22.75 seconds.

The video of Bermudez was viewed almost 700,000 times on YouTube, leading Bermudez to wonder about a career as a YouTuber.

He spoke to MMAJunkie to recall the conversation that left him stunned:

“I was like, ‘How much do you make just being a YouTuber?’ And he was like, ‘I don’t know. My best month was, like, $30,000.’ I was like, ‘What? Shut up!’ I was like, why am I not doing this?”

Bermudez, who is coming off a win over Tatsuya Kawajiri, will face Rony Jason on August 6th in Salt Lake City.
