UFC fighter Joel Bauman put Hollywood and the mainstream media on notice during a post-fight interview, saying he’s going to assume they’re all pedophiles until the flight logs of deceased billionaire Jeffrey Epstein are released.
After defeating middleweight contender Anthony Ivy in a TKO at Fury FC 68 in San Antonio, Texas on Sunday, Bauman donned a leather harness and launched into a tirade against the California elite and even late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, telling them to “eat dick” until the “flight logs” – presumably belonging to Epstein – are released.
“So all those doubting my NFT you’re looking at the guy. That’s the reason that college athletes and high school athletes are getting paid today, Mr. influencer the influencers,” Bauman began.
“Secondly, Jimmy Kimmel viral this: I fight to eradicate childhood malnutrition from the planet and until they release the flight logs, you, the mainstream media, Hollywood, are all pedophiles to me. Eat dick. Am I cancelled yet dot com?”

UFC Fight Pass had initially clipped and released Bauman’s post-fight remarks on Twitter but then apparently decided to delete the post over his controversial statement.
Unbeknownst to Bauman, some of Epstein’s flight logs to his private plane have been released through several lawsuits over the years, showing several high-profile names had flown on “Lolita Express,” including Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton, who jetted with Epstein at least 26 times.
Unsealed court documents and a former adviser to Clinton claimed the former president also visited Epstein’s “Pedophile Island” in the Caribbean, but Clinton has refuted those allegations.
As for Kimmel, his name appears in a fake list that’s circulated around social media of celebrities accused of visiting “Pedophile Island,” and no evidence exists showing he’s ever participated in Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.
But Bauman’s incendiary comments contain hints of truth: before he died under mysterious circumstances in his prison cell in 2019, Epstein was convicted of sex trafficking underage girls at his numerous properties – including Little St. James aka “Pedophile Island,” along with his accomplice Ghislane Maxwell, who is serving a 20-year sentence.
Epstein victims have named in their lawsuits many high-profile figures who at the very least had knowledge of Epstein’s activities, including Prince Andrew, French modeling scout Jean-Luc Brunel, Victoria’s Secret founder Les Wexner, and former Governors George Mitchell (Maine) and Bill Richardson (N.M.).
