Twitch IRL personality ‘jaystreazy’ has been meeting people from all avenues of life, but was particularly intrigued by an Affiliate streamer who had a “badass” story of losing his arm.

Hordes of fans and streamers have been converging onto San Diego for TwitchCon 2019, to meet, greet and grow their communities by mingling with other people with like-minded interests.

One of the greatest things about the convention is when smaller personalities get the spotlight on them as they come across a bigger channel’s streamer. These interactions can reveal the incredible lives of the people on the platform who might not have the biggest following on Twitch.

jaystreazy TwitchUno_flex was super positive while recounting how he lost his arm.

That’s exactly what happened when Jay caught up with Twitch streamer ‘uno_flex’ who was waiting in line for a meet-n-greet with Dr Disrespect.

After getting to know uno_flex while waiting for the Doc, the conversation inevitably turned to the story of his missing arm which the streamer was more than comfortable delivering on.

“I’d love to tell you, it’s so badass to tell,” uno_flex said to Jay after examining his insane tattoo of a dragon’s eye.

The streamer explained that he was three-and-a-half years old swimming in the shallow areas of a Maui beach when a Tiger shark had made its way up to him.

While he noted Tiger sharks aren’t known for their size, they are famous for their aggressive tendencies, which a young uno_flex unfortunately experienced that day.

“(The Tiger shark) actually bit my arm right where your elbow bends,” he said. “(That’s) where the shark bit me on my arm, and he just took my arm clean off when I was three-and-a-half.”

An event like that would be traumatic for anyone to go through, but uno_flex is in high spirits since the streamer “would like to think” he remembers but isn’t exactly sure of how that day went down.

As a one-armed streamer, uno_flex’s three-month-old Twitch channel shows him routinely destroying people in Fortnite games when he isn’t fighting for Azeroth as various Alliance classes.

Uno_flex has the charisma, talent and an incredible energy that will undoubtedly lead to a soaring Twitch career with the help of his “magical one-arm content.”

Jake Paul roasts Conor McGregor with new fight deal after UFC 257 Poirier loss

Jake Paul has jokingly rescinded his $50 million fight offer to Conor McGregor after his shock loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, offering him a measly $10,000 instead.

Jake Paul has been nipping at Conor McGregor’s heels in the weeks leading up to UFC 257, trying to bait the former double-champ into accepting a $50 million fight offer for an exhibition boxing bout.

However, despite his best efforts, it didn’t work. Conor McGregor was too focused on his own endeavors and never acknowledged it, although he tip-toed around the question a few times.

Eventually, he flat-out said he’s not interested in the fight, and it seemed like the idea was dead and buried once and for all. But after Conor McGregor’s shock UFC 257 loss to Dustin Poirier, Jake Paul is at it again. And this time, his original offer is off the table.

Jake Paul’s second fight offer adds more insult to injury after Conor McGregor’s UFC 257 loss.

Jake Paul tuned in to watch the main event like millions of other UFC fans. But he had more invested in the fight than the average viewer, and once it was over, it was only a matter of time before he posted a video.

“Hey Conor,” she said, laughing hysterically in a video that he shared on Twitter moments after the loss. “I’ve got ten thousand dollars for you, cash!” He struggled to contain his laughter and kept repeating words. “Oh, you had fifty million dollars,” he added, right at the end. 

The same message was echoed in a YouTube video Jake uploaded to his YouTube channel shortly after titled ‘My Message to Conor McGregor.’ He said, “you should have taken the Jake Paul fight for $50 million, but now I got $10,000 for you. I got $10,000 cash, cold hard cash. Or I’ll give you a third of a bitcoin. You choose, Conor McGregor.”

At the end of the video he says “April 17th guys, I’m fighting… You know, it was supposed to be Conor McGregor but we’ll see what happens, stay tuned.”

It’s obvious that Jake is still up to his usual antics. He’s trying to kick Conor while he’s down. But this time, it might actually work.

Conor’s loss will undoubtedly be a spanner in the works for his UFC plans. However, it means he might be open to lucrative exhibition fight offers once again.

Of course, there’s no way he’d accept the second $10,000 fight offer. But he might consider the initial $50 million one, which is probably what Jake Paul intended. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next.
