One of the ongoing themes of xQc’s Twitch stream is his love for drinking Coke, and now he’s told Twitch viewers why he thinks drinking it all the time isn’t as bad for you as people believe.

Waiting in spawn for an Overwatch game to begin, xQc tells viewers he thinks Coke has a deal with Canada for their water, “because there’s a lot of good, pure water to drink because of all the big lakes.”

He then goes on to claim that when your drinking Coke, your pretty much drinking water, “the amount of water your body loses because of the caffeine and the sugar in the Coke, is not as much as the water from the Coke itself.”

“You can drink only Coke if you want, and that’s what I do,” xQc tells his viewers before heading out to start the match.

Referred to as “the juice” by xQc, Coke has been his drink of choice since he began streaming and it has now turned into a meme with a life all its own.

Off stream, xQc will be competing in the Overwatch World Cup at BlizzCon in November as part of Team Canada, his first venture back into professional Overwatch since being released by the Dallas Fuel earlier in the year.

The streamer has stated he wants no part in Overwatch League, so fans will have plenty of opportunity to watch his stream and maybe get more questionable health advice going forward.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
