Demi Lovato wants a real MMA fight.

The 24-year-old singer has been undergoing mixed martial arts training for over a year and has made a number of enquiries as to taking her love of the sport even further.

Jay Glazer, who owns the Unbreakable gym - which is frequented by MMA fighters including Chuck Liddell and Cung Le - said of Demi's request: "She's brought it up to us a million times."

And the fitness guru thinks Demi would hold her own in a professional boy as he thinks she is "the real deal".

He told TMZ: "She throws elbows better than most of the UFC guys that come in there.

She's definitely one of our fighters without a doubt.

"She's more violent than most, and then she gets mad if we don't get after her or harder, she's definitely one of our fighters, without a doubt.

"She has a mind set, I wish I could bottle up her mind set and sell it to all the guys in the UFC, she's a bad little lioness dude. Don't mess with her."

The 'Cool for the Summer' singer - who was romantically linked with MMA Guilherme 'Bomba' Vasconcelos fighter this summer after splitting from long-term boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama - certainly has plenty of time to train for an MMA bout as she recently revealed she is planning to "take a break" from her career in the new year.

She posted on Twitter: "So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media ... It doesn't feel worth it anymore. I'd rather do charity work tbh [to be honest] (sic)"
