Popular streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has seen a massive popularity spike on Twitch over the last few weeks and it looks to have carried him to brand-new heights on the platform.

While many have looked at Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ success on Twitch as one of the biggest stories over the last year, they may have completely missed a dark horse in the form of summit1g come out of nowhere. 

Even though Ninja once boasted over 200,000 subscribers on Twitch, the astronomical numbers were never expected to last and his numbers have predictably slid in the last few months. 

As Ninja was losing ground, however, summit1g was silently gaining on him to the point that he’s now hit a major milestone that few Twitch broadcasters have been able to reach. 

The former Counter-Strike pro turned full-time streamer has now crossed the elusive 40,000 subscriber mark, making it clear that Fortnite is not all it takes to reach success on Twitch. 

While subscriber counts are not made public by Twitch, some stat tracking sites, such as Twitch Stats, are reporting that summit has overtaken Ninja in subscribers altogether. These are in no way confirmed, however. 

As evidenced by Monster’s Tweet, though, summit has certainly broken the 40k mark in subscribers. This alone would be a feat in and of itself, but it becomes even more impressive when you consider the manner in which summit has reached this point. 

While Ninja’s game of choice is, of course, Fortnite, summit1g has most recently been heavily diving into Sea of Thieves.

The pirate-themed adventure game came out in March 2018 and has allowed summit to show off his impressive skills in new and inventive ways.

Whether it’s trolling his enemies or surfing on Megalodons or choking heists, summit is quite simply doing it all as the king of the Sea of Thieves directory on Twitch and it has paid off immensely.

Ninja still holds a massive lead over everyone on Twitch in terms of followers at over 13 million (almost eight million more than the second place Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek), but summit’s feat is no less impressive to see given the game he’s dedicated his channel to of late.

2019 has just barely gotten underway and it already looks like we could be seeing a Twitch battle that rivals that of the infamous battle between ‘PewDiePie” and T-Series over on YouTube.

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.
