YouTuber and Livestreamer Paul “Ice Poseidon” Denino hosted his own boxing event during the KSI vs Logan Paul match.
Ice Poseidon hosted his second annual UFCx event on August 25th. Streamed through YouTube for a live audience, Poseidon gathered a sizeable crowd in a boxing gym to throw down with multiple internet personalities.
While the first UFCx match was held in a backyard due to venue difficulties, this year’s match saw an increase in budget. Complete with a ring girl, a seasoned commentator, and a legitimate boxing ring, the second UFCx saw a vast improvement over its predecessor.
Commentated by Adam22, another popular Youtuber, the event featured a variety of other YouTubers, including Burger Planet, Mexican Andy, Yuber, and more.
Much like the KSI vs Logan Paul card, many of the fights showed massive differences in weight and height. In one match, Mexican Andy weighed in at 200 lbs and stands at 5 feet 5 inches, where his opponent, F Munch, stood at 5 feet 8 inches and weighed 155 lbs.
MOMO wasn’t the only YouTuber bringing taunts into the boxing ring. Scuffed Phelps broke into a series of pushups as a mean to taunt his opponent, Yuber, who was a full 40 lbs heavier than Phelps.
Poseidon’s UFCx was streamed during the KSI vs Logan Paul match, which garnered over 800,000 views on YouTube and over 1.2 million on Twitch. While Poseidon’s initiative reached a much smaller audience, with the VOD having over 180,000 views, there is something to be said for the event’s ironic and scrappy nature.
