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.

Former rapper Logic dropped the price of house – over $226k – on a Pokemon card. The Twitch star bought the insanely rare 1st Edition Charizard at an auction, and broke a major record for the Nintendo collectible. 

Despite releasing in 1999, the Pokemon Trading Card Game has seen an explosion in value over the last two years. Items that were once traded on school playgrounds around the world for nothing are now selling for the price of a house.

Lately, the hobby has been attracting attention from popular stars such as Logan Paul who paid $216k for a base set booster box. On October 9, Twitch streamer Logic raised the bar even higher after spending $226k on a shadowless 1st Edition Charizard – and also broke a record in the process.

Logic breaks record buying $226k Pokemon card

The 1st Edition Pokemon card made waves in the TCG community when buyers quickly drove the bid up to $124k. On October 9, the item ended at an astonishing $226,088.76, with the buyer’s premium included. It was also “shadowless” – which means there’s no shadow on the right-hand side of the art. box, which is rarer.

Shockingly, the winner was none other then former rapper and Twitch star, Logic. The streamer made the reveal on Twitter in a reply to YouTube personality Logan Paul. “@LoganPaul I’m the one at the auction for 183k Lololol,” he said.

Released in 1997, Charizard has often been the crown jewel of the Pokemon TCG. Decades later, its popularity has maintained and is the most sought-after monster from the original base set.

According to card investing company, Cardhops, the sale is now the new record holder for the highest price that the Charizard card has sold for. Business analyst Darren Rovell confirmed this, stating, “Beats record for the card by more than $50,000.”

Logic’s Pokemon card splurge smashed a record.

While Logic being the auction winner might surprise some, this isn’t the first time the popular streamer has dropped big money on the Nintendo hobby. On October 9, he tweeted out that he’d spent $23k on a base set booster box from 1999.

“Just opened a $23k Pokemon base set box! Only a few back in but look what I pulled!!” he exclaimed, as he revealed that he had pulled another Charizard card – though this one wasn’t 1st Edition or shadowless.

Pokemon TCG fever seems to be at an all-time high. On October 9, Logan Paul hosted a livestream where he opened up a 1st Edition base set booster box he paid $216k for.

The star pulled a Charizard card worth up to $85k, and even popular YouTuber Mr Beast won a $30k Blastoise. With Logic dropping over $226k for a single card, it seems the sky’s the limit for the Nintendo hobby.
