The highly-anticipated boxing rematch between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul won’t feature any other social media stars on its undercard – but that isn’t stopping YouTuber Deji from making a callback to last year’s fight.

KSI and Logan Paul’s match in 2018 saw a slew of YouTubers on its undercard, including a fight between Team 10 co-founder Jake Paul and the “comedyshortsgamer” Deji Olatunji.

However, the fight didn’t exactly pan out in Deji’s favor – Jake Paul won their bout by TKO in the fourth round, after Deji’s corner threw in the towel.

Despite Jake’s convincing victory, the youngest Paul brother didn’t go unscathed: he suffered a slew of headshots from Deji during their fight, leading to a hilarious video compilation that featured the YouTuber getting punched in the face 40 times – a fact that Deji made sure to bring up ahead of his older brother’s rematch.

“Crazy how last year I did this to Jake Paul,” Deji Tweeted next to a picture of Jake Paul’s bloodied face from their 2018 fight. “Time flies by, crazy!”

Deji’s jab didn’t go unnoticed: while some fans encouraged this continuing beef between the YouTubers, others clowned him for the post, with fellow YouTuber Yousef “FouseyTube” Arakat taking the opportunity to roast Deji.

“Have you acquired memory loss in the last year as well?” Fousey wrote, reminding him that, despite giving Paul a beating, he ultimately lost their fight.

This wouldn’t be the first time Fousey has called out Deji, either: the two started a beef in August, with Deji challenging Arakat to a sparring match during a livestream, claiming that his opponent was “nowhere near ready” to face him.

Not one to be outdone, Fouseytube responded to the callout in a YouTube video, claiming that he wanted “all the smoke” with both Deji and Jake Paul.

However, with KSI vs Logan Paul 2 going pro, it looks like these YouTubers will have to settle their differences on a smaller stage – although word of an official fight between the three stars has yet to be announced in light of the November 9 rematch.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect explains how Black Ops Cold War could be “so much more fun”

Dr Disrespect has chimed in on the much-maligned SBMM system used in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and other titles, and although he doesn’t blame Treyarch, the Doc is less than impressed with the system and wants it removed.

Dr Disrespect is all about violence, speed, and momentum. However, he hasn’t been able to spread his wings in Black Ops Cold War and fly like the eagle he was born to be, and he blames it all on SBMM.

SBMM, which stands for skill-based matchmaking, is a system used in many popular games to try and balance out lobbies.

Some players and developers think it’s a good thing, but many others believe it tends to ‘punish’ higher-skilled players like Dr Disrespect. It throws them into lobbies with other elite players, which results in ‘sweaty’ games where everyone is good and trying really hard to win.

The game becomes more serious and less casual, and it demands more effort, which is less than ideal for streamers like the Doc, who want to entertain.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of many games that uses SBMM.

Dr Disrespect has never been one to hold his tongue and mince his words on matters important to him. In his latest stream, he had a frustrating time playing Black Ops Cold War due to SBMM and shared his thoughts.

Man, that SBMM, what a… what a…” he said, struggling to find the words to summarize his rage. “SBMM results to exact same fight every single time.” It’s a sentiment shared by players from many different games and skill brackets.

“It has nothing to do with… game design,” he added.

“Treyarch knocks it out the park… I just think it has something to do with a lot of the technical stuff… I would take that tech out.”

Dr Disrespect
Dr Disrespect isn’t one to hold back on his opinions, especially when it comes to games.

Dr Disrespect knows that it isn’t Treyarchs fault. Instead, he refers to a “third-party” who works with them and “manages all the data and everything.” He says, “they’re able to make all these tweaks, and all that stuff,” and the fact that SBMM is implemented at all is “such a bummer.”

“I want some sheep in my lobbies,” he said. “I want a couple triple peekers. The game could like just be so much more fun. I don’t understand why they have it.”

Dr Disrespect isn’t the first person to express his concerns about SBMM, and he won’t be the last. However, the Doc is a pillar in the gaming community. He has also been involved in some behind-the-scenes level design, so his opinion has some weight.

Either way, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still loads of fun. SBMM might even help you become a better player if you’re willing to embrace it.
