Controversial poker pro and Instagram kingpin Dan Bilzerian says he is serious about fighting in the MMA.

Bilzerian, 37, regularly trains at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas and there is little argument he’s in sensational physical shape.

"I’d like to fight, but I’ve got to do a real camp," Bilzerian told MMA Junkie Radio. "I don’t want to go in there and f***ing 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 s***. So it wouldn’t be bad."

Poker pro Mike Fortin-Demers, upon learning of Bilzerian’s desire, has offered to fight him with $500K on the line.

"I saw an article that Dan Bilzerian was looking to do an MMA fight and I just thought that was my chance," Fortin-Demers, 13 years younger than Bilzerian, told TaskandPurpose.com. "I think I can beat him, so like I said, I’m a private investor, so when I see an opportunity to make money I just take it and I think this opportunity is like really good. I’m willing to bet huge on it."
