Pro Fortnite player Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish eliminated fellow pros Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson, Dmitri ‘Mitr0’ Van de Vrie and Chris ‘crr’ Williams within moments of each other in the same game – all while in a call with them.

Benjyfishy is one of the most successful Fortnite players currently, consistently ranking among the very best in online tournaments, alongside longterm duo Mongraal and his other two victims in this brilliant clip.

While playing solo Arena matches, Benjy is just treating it like any other game, but soon realizes in the most hilarious fashion that this lobby may have been a little more stacked than others – but it’s no problem for him.

Mongraal and Benjy have become very close friends as well as teammates through Fortnite.

Running around Slurpy Swamp, Benjy hears some commotion nearby to check it out and stumbles upon a couple of players obviously trying to get the better of each other. After taking out one, he swiftly eliminates the second and immediately realizes it’s Mitr0 – cracking up at the Dutch player’s misfortune.

Hardly 15 seconds later he takes out another player, immediately shouting “oh my god” as he sees crr’s name pop up on his screen.

If Benjy didn’t find this hilarious enough, 25 seconds later another player pushes him and he knocks him out with two hits of the tac shotgun – and nearly screams when the words “Eliminated FaZe Mongraal” popped up on his screen.

Benjy struggles to even get words out between laughter and his cries of “oh my god” and “no,” before finally finding the breath to say “Yes, I’ve just killed Mongraal, mitr0 and crr in the same game!”

Benjy went on to get a 22-kill Victory Royale in the game, no doubt feeling much more confident after taking down three of Europe’s top talents in quick succession.

Although Arena matches aren’t the peak of competitive Fortnite, Benjy will certainly be holding this over their heads for a very long time.

Jake Paul reveals how much money he made from Nate Robinson fight

Despite holding a professional record of just two wins and no losses, YouTube sensation Jake Paul is already making more than most professional boxers will ever see in their careers off the back of his Nate Robinson fight.

Jake Paul is still relatively fresh to the sport of boxing. Following a lone amateur win, his first professional bout came at the start of 2020. He’s just closed out the year with another victory. Both pro matchups went his way thanks to two early knockouts against fellow YouTube AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

He’s barely spent a few minutes inside the ring across both fights, however he’s already taking home a good chunk of change for his efforts. The internet celebrity brings legions of fans with him, contributing to huge Pay Per View sales and even viral trends after the fact.

Rather than a guaranteed figure for his latest scrap, his earnings were dependent on the performance of the PPV as a whole.

As one of the biggest PPV events of the year – reaching over a million buys in the United States alone, according to analyst Dan Rafael – Paul cashed in big-time thanks to his unique contract for the fight.

The disclosed purses for both Paul and Robinson were a little off-base, as ESPN’s Mark Raimondi exposed in a December 3 interview with Paul. Initial figures were slim, but Paul assured he was paid “a lot,” even laughing when the topic was brought up.

No exact figure was revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the backend structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”

Walking away with $10,000,000 at a minimum sure sounds like a lot. This number doesn’t factor in potential sponsorship deals or additional PPV buys that come in after the initial batch. There are also international sales to consider as well.

It’s clear he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon either. “I truly believe I will be the biggest prize fighter in the world,” he added.

Segment begins at 9:57.

“Mike Tyson is co-signing me, he wants to take me under his wing. Why can’t I become the champion of the world?”

Paul has some lofty goals and even “realistic” aspirations of fighting Conor McGregor sometime in the near future. It’s entirely possible these eight-figure paychecks are just the beginning for Paul in his boxing career.
