xQc can’t contain himself after punishing taunting UFC opponent

Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel pulled off a stunning comeback against an opponent in UFC after he found himself holding on for dear life. 

While he may be one of the most talented Overwatch players around, xQc regularly finds himself playing a wide variety of games during his daily Twitch streams. Be it something big like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, or a smaller indie game recommended by fans, the streamer usually dabbles in it – and might even rage every once in a while.

That was a similar story during his November 24 broadcast, when the Candian jumped back into UFC and tried to turn around his online record by defeating anyone who dared to stand across from him in the octagon.

Twitch/xQcThousands of viewers tune in to watch xQc on a daily basis.

Instead of playing with a created character like fellow streamer, Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid, xQc opted for UFC middleweight, Robert Whittaker, but found himself in danger during the second round of a bout. 

With 90 seconds to go, the streamer was on the receiving end of some brutal knee strikes and kicks to the body when his chosen fighter dropped to the canvas. While his opponent could (and should) have finished him off, they opted to taunt xQc instead – giving him the chance to recover.

It proved to be fatal for them, however, as xQc took a moment, jumped back to his feet and delivered a devastating overhand left that instantly dropped his opponent. 

“Yes, yes, it’s over,” he yelled in celebration, before throwing his arms out to the side and deciding to have his own taunting moment. “Done! Keep dozing. Boom, boom, boom, boom, champion of the world!”

Despite the win, xQc still has quite a ways to go until he can, officially, call himself the champion of the world – as he’s not got the greatest record in UFC online fights. 

He could, very well, turn it around by going on an insane win streak, but it’ll take more than miracle wins against opponents who are looking for a flash knockout – rather than a ground and pound stoppage – to get himself a positive record.

Either way, it’s a positive step for xQc as he looks more like a contender than a struggling journeyman fighter.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”
