An audio clip of Michael Bisping discussing the upcoming KSI vs Logan Paul boxing match in a seemingly derogatory manner has surfaced online.

The clip in question comes from episode 76 of Bisping’s “Believe You Me” podcast (called Photoshop Fiddler) and some reports state that the former UFC middleweight champion “slammed” the fight for being an “insulting mockery”.

While Bisping certainly did make it clear that he isn’t a fan of the boxing match, he also had some words of praise for KSI, who he has trained with in the past:

“I was at the performance institute and me and Forrest Griffin did some training then as well,

“He was fit, me and Forrest really pushed him and he kept a good pace, so his cardio was in shape and that was a while ago as well so he’s gonna be in good shape for this.”

KSI / TwitterMichael Bisping saw significant improvement from KSI in their second training session.

He went on to say that he saw a big improvement in KSI between the two training sessions that they had together before explaining his reasons for wanting people to “stay in their lane to a certain degree”:

“Maybe I’m wrong here…

“I find it almost insulting to everybody that has dedicated their life to being a fighter, come up the hard way, been a lifelong boxer or martial artists or whatever,

“They’re almost making a mockery out of the sport of boxing or mixed martial arts or whatever it is by doing this.”

The Brit then went on to say that the two YouTube stars are pretending to be Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather in their pre-fight press conferences, summarizing his feelings with “I’m not into it. In short, I’m not into it”.

After hearing some rebuttals from his co-host, the stand-up comedian Luis J. Gomez, Bisping clarified his point of view further by saying that the two internet sensations acting like professional fighters irks him the most:

“Just stop trying to pretend that you’re a fighter, because you’re not,

“You’re fighting another YouTuber, have it for what it is, dedicate yourself, both train whatever, that’s great,

“But stop pretending making out that you’re a fighter”

KSI and Logan Paul will fight on Saturday, August 25, at the Manchester Arena. While it seems unlikely that Michael Bisping will be tuning in to watch the fight, it looks set to be another record breaking event for YouTube.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
