xQc is the latest big name streamer to get on board with the latest trend of GTA roleplaying, a mod for GTA online that always makes some ridiculous moments.

Former Overwatch pro, Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel seems like the perfect fit for GTA RP, with his often over the top reactions and ability to make even the most mundane situations funny.

During his March 13 livestream, along with other well known streamers Pokelawls and MOONMOON, the trio set out to cause carnage in the roleplaying server, with expectedly hilarious results.

Twitch: LirikGTA V roleplay sees players take their ‘roles’ very seriously.

It all began rather innocently, but when a random player on a bike drove by and gave the middle finger to xQc, it suddenly kicked off.

After setting on the ‘old woman’ who had been so rude, the trio tried to steal the bike, only to have her suddenly come back and attack again.

On the woman’s second attempt, one flying punch to the back was enough to send her flying and everyone else into hysterics.

Finally, to cap off an already brilliant segment, the streamers tried to get into a car – and even managed to mess that up too.

It’s no surprise that GTA roleplaying streams on Twitch are becoming increasingly popular, with ridiculous moments always just around the corner.

Names like Summit1g, LIRIK and now xQc have enjoyed a boost in viewers while playing, often pulling in over 40,000 concurrent while they explore Los Santos in character.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
