Fans might know MOMO from his many FIFA and Fortnite videos on his YouTube channel, where he has over 1.4 million subscribers.

However, MOMO is more than a YouTube gamer. He made his first foray into amateur boxing during the KSI vs Logan Paul fight – and had an interesting take on the sport.

MOMO was set to fight fellow FIFA pro RossiHD in the second match of the evening. With over 2 million subscribers collectively, it wasn’t just a matter of physical prowess – it was a matter of clout, as well.

Rather than taking the match too seriously, MOMO decided to put a different spin on his fight.

At just one minute and fifty seconds into the first round, MOMO broke into Fortnite’s “Hype” emote, as though making an attempt to taunt his opponent.

The ‘Hype’ emote originates from the ‘shoot’ dance, popularized by rapper BlocBoy JB.

He wasn’t done yet: after another standoff with RossiHD, MOMO taunted again with the “Floss,” quickly returning to fighting stance at Rossi’s subsequent approach.

Rossi himself appeared a bit amused – he couldn’t stop a grin from sliding onto his face before rushing back in.

MOMO ended up taking the match against RossiHD in a points decision, solidifying his strength – and subscriber count – in the face of his opponent.

MOMO’s win was followed by five other events on the undercard, during which Jake Paul took the victory over Deji, KSI’s little brother. 

The event has over 5.4 million views as of August 26th, with another 1.2 million on Twitch. MOMO’s dance moves brought the hype to an already hype event, proving that internet memery is ever-present – even in the middle of a livestreamed fight.

xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
