Paul Felder hasn’t fought since losing to Dan Hooker but had a hilarious exchange on social media with a fan
Social media allows people to call out celebrities, including UFC stars, and Paul Felder certainly was interested in taking a critic down.
The UFC star last fought Dan Hooker and lost that clash to the Kiwi. Felder hasn’t retired from the UFC but suggested that only fights that interest him would result in a return to the Octagon.
Nevertheless, the 35-year-old is set to travel to Abu Dhabi for UFC 251 but was called out by a Twitter user.
The user, @joshuaS_10, called out Felder and told him to stay retired and remain a commentator:
“Stay retired Paul you’re a better commentator than fighter”
Felder then shot back at the user and asked him to say that to his face:
“Does it make you feel good saying that? Now would you say that to my face man to man?”
However, the user backed down from all this and had the most hilarious response to Felder:
“Nope you’d kick my ass that’s why I said it on twitter”
Felder didn’t carry the beef any longer and calmly replied “fair enough” as many on social media laughed out at the exchange.

Often such exchanges descend in chaos and name-calling. However, it was interesting to see that Felder and the Twitter fan were honest about what could happen if the pair did meet.
Felder’s interest piqued
While Felder wants to pick and choose his fights, the Hooker vs Dustin Poirier clash got him out of his chair.
Felder suggested that he was planning to make a UFC return and wanted to fight either of the stars. Hooker lost the clash to Poirier after five brutal rounds.
The 35-year-old certainly could do a decent job in the Octagon, but his exchange with the fan will go down as one of the greatest in the history of social media.
