Former Overwatch League pro Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca called out an alleged stream sniper after getting the player on his team.

Earlier in the streamer’s broadcast, Dafran complained that he was being stream sniped when an enemy McCree was able to “predict” his exact location while he was playing Tracer on Volskaya Industries.

“I’m being stream sniped. I need help,” the Danish DPS prodigy told his team before dying. “F**king stream snipers, dude.”

Dafran is a retired Overwatch League pro.

A few games later, Dafran encountered the stream sniper again, this time as a member of his team on Hollywood.

After a disappointing defense, M1DNIGHT called Dafran “spastic,” prompting the former pro to demand the player talk in team chat with his microphone.

“You did absolutely nothing and you stream sniped, dude,” Francesca accused.

“Why would I stream snipe you?” M1DNIGHT asked, but Dafran didn’t buy it.

“I remember you on f**king Volskaya, dude,” he continued. “You little piece of sh*t… how did you know?” he asked, alluding to the incident where the player seemed to know Dafran’s location perfectly.

“I checked every single corner,” the player claimed, prompting Dafran to mock him.

The former Atlanta Reign star went on to say that the player better check every single corner in his game or else he was “f**king stupid.”

“Okay, I’m gonna watch you, dude,” the streamer said and mere seconds later, M1DNIGHT died to the classic Junkrat trap/mine combo right as the spawn doors opened. “You didn’t check that corner, did you?”

The attacking round did not go so well for Dafran either as his team ended up being fully held on Hollywood.

“Hey M1DNIGHT, f**king close the stream next time we play against each other!” the Danish streamer cried, prompting his nemesis to spam racial slurs. “Okay dude, I f**king knew it.”

Francesca went on to report the player for abusive chat and saying the “forbidden word.”

“Only a stream sniper would say that,” Dafran told his viewers.

While the whole incident was crazy for both sides, at least the former pro had some karma go his way when his adversary died right off the bat for not checking corners like he said he was.

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.
