Logan Paul and KSI had their long-awaited rematch on November 9 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where Paul was defeated by his long-time rival, but he immediately claimed he was ill, sparking backlash on social media.

KSI was able to defeat Logan Paul by a split decision by the judges, partially due to a controversial decision to remove two points from Paul after an illegal hit.

Paul was considered to be a favorite for the rematch by many, so the result was surprising to some, with fan opinion still split on who deserved the victory more.

KSI, DAZN - YouTubeLogan Paul was mocked for his excuses he made following his rematch with KSI.

Perhaps most surprised was Logan Paul himself, as he explained that he is able to beat KSI nine out of ten times, but that part of the reason for this loss was that he was sick.

“I think nine out of 10 times, I beat JJ,” he said. “Tonight was the night, that one out of 10 times. You can hear my voice, I’m sick, I woke up sick. I’ve been sick for the past three days. The first thing I did this morning was sneezed three times.”

Not everyone bought that excuse, however, and Paul was quickly criticized on Twitter. Callux, a friend of KSI’s group, The Sidemen, got it started.

He mentioned how LP has now fought KSI twice and didn’t win either time, so his 9/10 remark doesn’t make sense.

Many other Twitter users jumped in on the fun, some saying KSI ruined Logan Paul’s career after this fight, while others said that the Paul brothers didn’t act graciously in their loss. Some Twitter users even called Paul’s excuses “embarassing.”

For what it’s worth, KSI had a lot of praise for Logan Paul after the fight, despite them being bitter rivals. 

Despite what Logan Paul says about the result, it doesn’t sound like he’ll get another chance to prove himself as there currently aren’t any plans for a third match.

KSI has no incentive to do this, outside of money, as he’s now looked at as the clear winner between the two, and dismissed the potential of a third bout in the ring immediately after being crowned the victor.

Logan Paul sounds like he wants to remain fighting, and has even set his eyes on the UFC’s Conor McGregor.

Who is Granny? The rising Twitch star who streams as a grandma

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
