With the recent announcement that Logan Paul would be fighting boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match, many questions have been raised — and now, KSI is questioning whether it’s even real.

On September 16, it was revealed that the YouTuber would be taking on the undefeated boxer in an exhibition match, immediately causing a stir.

Some aren’t convinced by the legitimacy of the fight, though, believing that it won’t go ahead at all.

After posting a cap to Twitter, implying that he believes the fight is ‘cap’ (not real), KSI has explained his reasoning.

KSI is arguably one of the most successful YouTubers out there.

For the most part, it simply boils down to one question: why?

“Yeah, this is cap, this ain’t happening,” the Brit said in a YouTube upload on September 22. “Why the f**k would Mayweather say yes to this? Why would he fight the loser of me and Logan?”

He continued: “I was the A-side for both fights. Surely Mayweather would just want to fight the winner of me vs. Logan? It just makes more sense.”

That wasn’t all, though. KSI went on to question how much of a draw Logan is, saying simply that he “can’t sell tickets.” He references the Challenger Games, which saw Logan bring together a bunch of YouTubers for a track event, and compares it to the Sidemen football matches, in which they sell “thousands of tickets.”

“I’m the bigger draw when it comes to boxing,” he adds at the end of his speech. “I defeated the one who started it, Joe Weller, and defeated Logan Paul himself, so why would Mayweather want to fight second best, when he could easily just fight the best?”

KSI’s line of reasoning does make sense, and he’s not the only person to have questioned the legitimacy of this fight. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

NELK Boys trolled Khabib and got Dana White drunk ahead of UFC 254

The NELK Boys were invited to Fight Island in Abu Dhabi ahead of UFC 254 and it didn’t take long before they had trolled Pay Per View headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov along with UFC President Dana White.

The NELK Boys are known for their antics so Dana White was well aware of what he was getting into by inviting them to Fight Island. Abu Dhabi served as host to a huge slate of UFC events throughout the course of September and October, closing out the latest stint with UFC 254.

The October 24 PPV made waves due to undefeated Nurmagomedov’s shock retirement after his 29th consecutive win. However, the NELK Boys made waves in their own way with a brand-new video.

Up to their usual antics, the crew played pranks on each other while mixing it up with UFC fighters. Outside of their shoey with Aussie heavyweight Tai Tuivasa, the NELK Boys trolled The Eagle and even got Dana White drunk.

In a rare interaction with Khabib prior to what would be his final fight, they pranked him by asking for oddly specific MMA advice. “What is the most important aspect of fighting for any beginner fighter to focus on?” Kyle Forgeard asked.

Before Khabib could even answer, the plot thickened. Forgeard joked that the reason behind his interest in MMA is to fight the BMF Champ Jorge Masvidal after he slept with his girlfriend. “How old are you?” Khabib responded, going along with the joke. 

Realizing that he’s too old to start training, he had another solution in mind. “I think you have to buy [a] dog.” With a dog by his side, that might be Forgeard’s only chance, according to Khabib.

Next on the itinerary was to get the UFC President completely wasted. While they downed a few shots at the very beginning of the day, the real party came later that night. “I’ve got weigh-ins at 11 AM tomorrow,” White joked before taking another shot.

“Our goal is for Dana to not make it to the weigh-ins,” Forgeard said. Ultimately, that didn’t quite come to fruition but it’s clear they got him rather drunk. “We did like eight or 12 [shots] right in a row.”

The weigh-ins went off without a hitch and so too did the PPV event the following day. It was a short-lived trip for the NELK Boys on Fight Island, though it was one that proved all too valuable for some content.

This particular video ended with a teaser of what’s to come for the content creating crew too; it appears as though a call with the United States President is in store, courtesy of Dana White.
