Popular Twitch streamer TimTheTatman was in attendance at the UFC 246 event, and watched his exact prediction for the McGregor-Cerrone fight come true in person. But fellow streamer Ali ‘SypherPK‘ Hassan ended the evening with a bigger win at Tim’s expense.

The thrill of victory doesn’t last forever. Sometimes, it only lasts for a few fleeting moments.

On Saturday night, the notorious Conor McGregor faced off against veteran fighter Daniel “Cowboy” Cerrone in the main event of UFC 246. This was McGregor’s first UFC fight in over a year.

TimTheTatman offered up a prediction for the fight, which he commonly does for NFL games as well. However, a lot of his forecasts for football games don’t end up going his way, including his double guess from the NFL divisional playoff round.

Sometimes, Tim will use his predictions in an attempt to jinx teams he’s rooting against. But in a rare exception, after tweeting that he wanted McGregor to win, he made his prediction just before the two men squared off, saying that the former double champion would win the bout in just one round.

It did not take long for the beloved bearded streamer’s prediction to come true. McGregor flew out of the gate after the opening bell, hitting Cerrone with a running knee before implementing his shoulder as a weapon to bloody his opponent’s nose.

Conor caught him with a massive kick that dazed the Cowboy, before pouncing and pummelling him until the fight was ended in a decisive 40 seconds by TKO.

Tim was sitting with a collection of popular streamers and gaming personalities including Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, and Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez. Jack ‘CourageJD’ Dunlop captured the group’s stunned reactions to the quick fight.

The Tatman relished in his successful prediction, but much like Cerrone in the fight, the feeling of victory did not last long, as SypherPK delivered his own knockout blow at the expense of Tim’s beloved Dallas Cowboys.

The Fortnite pro’s haymaker of a tweet exploded into one of his most-liked tweets ever, prompting him to comment that the tweet was gonna be the one that sent him over 700k followers. He currently sits at 699.5k.

Tim, clearly blindsided by the crack, retweeted it with “Bro WTF” and also replied with “Bro what the HECK.” But he was able to rally and end the night on a high note, posing for a photograph with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.

Thankfully, Prescott was able to attend the UFC event since the Cowboys didn’t have a playoff game the next day.

Tim announced at the end of 2019 that he would remain with Twitch, as part of a collection of other streamers who announced they would stay put and not switch platforms. His first stream back will be Monday after he returns from his short Vegas trip.

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
