Thousands tuned in to watch Saqib ‘LIRIK‘ Zahid and Felix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel duke it out in UFC 3, however the entertaining event came to a screeching halt when one of the Twitch stars accidentally disrupted the tournament.
LIRIK and xQc gave KSI vs Logan Paul 2 a run for its money when they drew in an insane amount of viewers on Twitch to watch their gaming tournament on November 25, at one point peaking at around 70,000 active users.
While the tournament was in good fun, many tuned in to cheer on their favorite personality as the two traded blows in the virtual game, before one of them was declared a winner.
However, the tournament was hilariously interrupted and came to a standstill when LIRIK made a mistake that almost all PlayStation 4 owners can relate to.
The two Twitch stars were in the middle of their tournament when LIRIK accidentally exited out of his game to the PlayStation home screen to play a DVD. “Oh sh*t! No! What the f*ck!?” he exclaimed in panic.
As his PlayStation system automatically switched over to a DVD he had in his disc tray and booted it up, he screamed “”F*ck! F*ck! What the f*ck!?” in confusion and frustration. xQc immediately noticed and yelled “What the f*ck I’m lagging! Yooo!”
The Canadian streamer called his opponent “lag switch Larry” before jokingly stating “I’m done!” LIRIK then explained, “I hit my PS home button and started some f*cking sh*t. Oh my god!”
Despite xQc’s recent win in the game to boost his ego, LIRIK ended up taking the tournament of three, and beat the Canadian with one final brutal fight where his character landed some pretty nasty blows.
“No! Don’t die!” the Canadian personality screamed, as his fighter was fell to the Octagon mat. His opponent then hopped on him and pummeled away as his head.
“Nooooo! No no no!” he screamed as the match came to an end. The prize for the whole tournament was 100 subs, making the loss sting even more, although the two seemed to enjoy the whole event.
Despite the hilarious interruption that temporarily disrupted their match, the stream pulled in thousands of viewers, and left many entertained by the two streaming giants’ collaboration.
As of the time of writing this article, xQc continues to be one of the most popular streamers on Twitch with over 1.7 million followers, and LIRIK with 2.5 million.
