Popular streamer Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon has spoken out about her return to Twitch following her recent suspension, claiming that she’s going to do her best to learn from previous mistakes. 

Though she is an incredibly popular streamer who has thousands of fans tuning in whenever she goes live, Alinity is a controversial figure to others. She sparked outrage when she tossed her cat across her room back in July of 2019, and was again under fire when she had a wardrobe malfunction on April 24

With calls for her to be banned on a permanent basis from Twitch, Alinity gave herself a three-day ban – even though Twitch only suspended her for a day. With her return to streaming on the horizon, she’s spoken out about the future of her channel.

The popular broadcaster pointed out that she wanted to learn from her mistakes moving forward, and even though she is unsure what the future holds for her, she isn’t in the business of calling it quits just yet.

“I don’t know what the future has in store for me, but I welcome it with open arms: the success and failures, the love and hate, the beautiful and ugly,” Alinity tweeted on April 27. “I will do my best to learn from my mistakes and tackle whatever comes next. I am not done yet.”

As usual, her tweet was met with a mixed response as fans offered support and welcomed her message, though plenty of others took the opportunity to mock her previous on-stream incidents. 

However, Alinity followed up by announcing that she would be returning to Twitch on Tuesday, April 28 – though she didn’t reveal what time she’d go live or if the rest of her schedule would be changed due to the recent suspension.

What the future has in the store for Alinity obviously remains to be seen, but fans will want her to stay out of trouble so they keep getting their usual entertainment.

Jake Paul reveals how much money he made from Nate Robinson fight

Despite holding a professional record of just two wins and no losses, YouTube sensation Jake Paul is already making more than most professional boxers will ever see in their careers off the back of his Nate Robinson fight.

Jake Paul is still relatively fresh to the sport of boxing. Following a lone amateur win, his first professional bout came at the start of 2020. He’s just closed out the year with another victory. Both pro matchups went his way thanks to two early knockouts against fellow YouTube AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

He’s barely spent a few minutes inside the ring across both fights, however he’s already taking home a good chunk of change for his efforts. The internet celebrity brings legions of fans with him, contributing to huge Pay Per View sales and even viral trends after the fact.

Rather than a guaranteed figure for his latest scrap, his earnings were dependent on the performance of the PPV as a whole.

As one of the biggest PPV events of the year – reaching over a million buys in the United States alone, according to analyst Dan Rafael – Paul cashed in big-time thanks to his unique contract for the fight.

The disclosed purses for both Paul and Robinson were a little off-base, as ESPN’s Mark Raimondi exposed in a December 3 interview with Paul. Initial figures were slim, but Paul assured he was paid “a lot,” even laughing when the topic was brought up.

No exact figure was revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the backend structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”

Walking away with $10,000,000 at a minimum sure sounds like a lot. This number doesn’t factor in potential sponsorship deals or additional PPV buys that come in after the initial batch. There are also international sales to consider as well.

It’s clear he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon either. “I truly believe I will be the biggest prize fighter in the world,” he added.

Segment begins at 9:57.

“Mike Tyson is co-signing me, he wants to take me under his wing. Why can’t I become the champion of the world?”

Paul has some lofty goals and even “realistic” aspirations of fighting Conor McGregor sometime in the near future. It’s entirely possible these eight-figure paychecks are just the beginning for Paul in his boxing career.
