FaZe Clan’s Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks and Fortnite pro Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney have fully committed to Fortnite for life, as the pair got tattoos relating to the popular battle royale game – live on stream.

During his stream on February 16, the winningest Fortnite player had celebrity tattoo artist Roman Lacoste – who previously gave Ninja a Fortnite tattoo – permanently ink the in-game character known as ‘Jonesy’ on his thigh.

As for Banks, he allowed Tfue himself to ink ‘Code Tfue’ on his thigh – used for Fortnite’s creator code system, which allows fans to directly support their favorite YouTubers and streamers whenever they buy things in the item shop.

So, whenever a Tfue fan purchases some V-Bucks, if they use the code ‘Tfue’ in the shop, the streamer will receive a small commission.

Tfue often reminds fans of his code, and now Banks can as well, simply by showing off his brand new tattoo.

The artwork was performed live on stream, with other members of FaZe Clan gathered round to witness Tfue’s and Banks’ permanent markings be applied.

Banks has a number of tattoos already, so ‘Code Tfue’ won’t stick out quite as much, and it is on the upper portion of his thigh, meaning it will be rarely seen when clothed.

For Tfue, he is often said to look just like ‘Jonesy’, a default skin in Fortnite, and so you could say he has tattooed the Fortnite version of himself on his body for life.

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.”
