You may think that after KSI and Logan Paul have knocked each other around the ring on August 25, that will be the end of their beef – but the reality is, this is really only the beginning.

When KSI called out the American, following his comfortable win over Joe Weller, the deal that was agreed between both parties was in fact a two fight deal.

The first, of course, will take place at the Manchester Arena in the UK on August 25. But another fight, the rematch, will be held in the United States, reportedly in February of 2019.

KSI, as the British hopeful, will retain 100% of the ticket revenue for the Manchester bout, according to reports, and then Logan will get his share when the US fight rolls around.

However, according to the contract, both KSI and Logan Paul have the option to opt out of the rematch, with 90 days of the August 25 bout.

If KSI was to opt out of the rematch, he would forfeit 50% of his net profits from ticket sales, handing them over to Logan Paul.

If Logan Paul opts out, then KSI will retain his 100% cut of the ticket sales revenue. All of this makes for an even more interesting fight on August 25.

So, if KSI was to get humiliated by Logan in the UK fight, he would have to choose to possibly endure another humiliation in the US, or forfeit half of the money – neither of which being good options.

Equally, if Logan Paul was to find himself on the end of a beating, he too would have to risk going through it again in front of a home crowd in the US, or choose to simply make nothing from the whole event.

Either way, it makes for a win-win for fans, who will most likely get to see two fights, and if their hopeful doesn’t win the first, they can do it all again in 2019.

After an onslaught of hateful comments, David Dobrik has responded to the backlash he faced for claiming that he “hates nature” on his Views podcast with Jason Nash.

As a huge YouTuber known for massive giveaways and wholesome content, Dobrik’s comments, if at all negative, can cause a stir among his fans. In the episode in question, Dobrik explains at length why he “hates nature,” and how outdoor activities really don’t do it for him.

“I cannot describe to you how much I f***ing hate nature,” Dobrik said. “I never knew I could be so angry at something. I was hiking in the mountains, and everybody I saw, I was just getting angry at. I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ I was so mad!”

“It feels so wrong because everybody loves nature,” he continued. “…what is so cool about something that’s been there… for millions of years! What is so cool about that? …it feels like everything I’ve worked for has been erased. I’m stuck with the dirt and the grass and the leaves.”

Angry commenters described Dobrik as “close-minded”

Angry commenters had a lot to say about his opinions on the world around him and on his attitude about something as mundane as nature.

“I don’t justify it, but now I understand the hate that you get for being so closed-minded and kind of a d**k to your friends or the planet,” one person wrote. “I know that you have done great things like charities and donations. But DUDE, grow up a bit, you live in a bubble.”

But in the latest episode of Views with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash, they discussed the backlash Dobrik faced and read out Dexerto’s article on the subject.

Dobrik explained that fans misunderstood his intentions: “I said I didn’t like nature and by this, I didn’t mean that I don’t care about the ecosystem where I think you shouldn’t recycle and I think you should litter. It was like I just literally do not care for walks.”

“I wasn’t joking about the actual nature but I was kind of like you guys are gonna really hate me for this. I didn’t think people would actually get mad and people are pissed.”

Since the latest episode has aired, angry commenters are nowhere to be seen. It seems that the adamant defenders of nature walks have been appeased.
