Lad Pretends To Play UFC Fight On Stream To Avoid Getting Copyrighted
A lad going by the name of Lester_Gaming managed to beat the system this weekend after pretending to play a UFC fight in a stream to avoid getting copyrighted.
Wearing a pair of headphones to make it look legit, AJ Lester streamed the UFC 218 match between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo on Twitch while he twiddled a few buttons to make it look like he was controlling both fighters.
In fact, Lester reportedly streamed the entire UFC event but the below footage of him streaming Holloway vs Aldo went viral in a matter of hours, gathering over 60k retweets.

Lester, who has over 8,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, can be heard shouting "c'mon man, block it" as the stream plays out. It really is something to behold.
Here's how Twitter reacted his incredible antics:

UFC 218 was also the making of Francis 'The Predator' Ngannou, who defeated Alistair Overeem in the first round with a thunderous left hook.
The Cameroonian-French wrecking ball has already made a name for himself as the most terrifying fighter in the division, but this brutal KO on Overeem has well and truly made him a challenger for the title.
Check out Lester's reaction to this brutal KO:
this reaction of @alester2010 is hilarious. Really great #twitch clip. pic.twitter.com/98aGH8CYTm
