Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul’s long-awaited Flat Earth documentary is finally here – and there’s a lot to unpack.

After months of teasing his project, Paul finally released the documentary on March 20, giving viewers a unique look inside the Flat Earth community through the lens of the Maverick squad.

In keeping with his previous statements on the doc, Paul and his team went “undercover” at the Flat Earth International Conference in Denver, Colorado, where Paul interviewed a series of self-proclaimed Flat-Earthers.

However, the video wasn’t as originally advertised; instead of being a legitimate documentary on the Flat Earth community, it plays more like a drawn-out comedy sketch, with some unintentionally hilarious bits mixed in with faux-dramaticized cuts (not including Paul being asked about the size of his Richard toward the end of the film).

Paul’s documentary garnered ample criticism ahead of its release, with the likes of popular YouTuber Ethan Klein claiming that Paul had ripped off Shane Dawson’s multiple highly-acclaimed YouTube series.

Conor McCormick TwitterLogan Paul’s presence at the Flat Earth International Confrence stirred up controversy, as some viewers felt it was the setup to a massive prank.

Even the Flat Earth Society came out with a statement following Paul’s presence at the conference, claiming that the YouTuber has no affiliation with the group and that the FES themselves have no ties to the Flat Earth International Conference.

This is just the latest of Paul’s current projects, which include the animated series ‘Choch Tales’ and his collaborative series with YouTuber Dwarf Mamba, ‘Best Friends’ – alongside an upcoming musical project, which has yet to be released.

Paul is likewise set to box YouTuber KSI in November 2019; however, their bout may be cancelled, after KSI claimed to be more interested in throwing down brother Jake Paul, instead.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
