Former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman scarred Twitch chat after he paused a replay of his fight against Anderson Silva at the worst possible moment.

On April 3, Weidman took over UFC’s Twitch account to talk with fans and rewatch some of his classic fights – including his two championship bouts against Brazilian legend Anderson Silva.

First, he watched his first battle against Silva at UFC 162. According to Weidman, he was “pissed off” by Silva’s lackadaisical style, which left the Brazilian fighter open for a knockout blow.

“I’m excited, I’m in shock and I’m pissed off,” the All-American said before explaining how he went over to his defeated opponent and demanded they have a rematch because he didn’t like winning the way he did.

Weidman next watched his UFC 168 rematch against The Spider and absolutely sickened Twitch chat by pausing at the lowest point of Silva’s career.

In this fight, the American checked a leg kick by Silva which caused his left fibula and tibia to break.

“When you’re emotional, you don’t set things up right,” the UFC fighter said as he watched round 2. “And it doesn’t work out good. By the way…”

Right there, the 35-year-old paused the match VOD just at the moment where his opponent’s leg brutally snapped.

“Oh God, I paused at the wrong time,” he exclaimed, visibility disturbed at the scene. “Guys, try not to look at the leg right now. Damn!”

Twitch chat was freaked out by the sickening pause.

At this point, chat was freaking out over the pause, saying the image was hurting their eyes.

As the pause remained, Weidman explained how he looked a lot better in this fight than he did in the last one where he scored the knockout.

“I looked slow and labored with everything. I was nervous, you could tell. This fight was way simpler because Anderson Silva had his hands up. There was no surprises. You’re used to seeing that all the time,” he revealed before finally unpausing.

As fun as it was to relive these moments with one of the greatest fighters in history, hopefully the next time a UFC star reviews matches on Twitch they pause at times that won’t cause viewers to squirm.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
