The fight ... is over. The extremely (yet short-lived) fight between YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul is over and ... it ended in a draw. Anti-climatic, sure ... staged? Probably.
The hype leading up to the event lasted for weeks. The match itself lasted a whopping six rounds while the two YouTubers tried to smash the other's face in. Though one of the judges cited a clear win for KSI, the rest said it was clearly an even match which resulted in the "Majority Draw" ruling.
But ... it's not over. A rematch has officially been declared which should only fuel KSI given that Paul mentioned he felt as though he won.
KSI takes the mic: “Logan, I think there’s only one thing to do... I think we’re gonna have to have a rematch.”— We The Unicorns (@wetheunicorns) August 25, 2018
But ... we're not the only ones that feel like there's something else at play here. A little set up made from the beginning to keep those clicks flowin'.
Convenient that they’d already booked another fight together at the start of next year then.— We The Unicorns (@wetheunicorns) August 25, 2018
Still - in the ring, anything goes - even scripts. With YouTube and streaming culture being at an all time high and Logan seemingly unable to keep himself out of a negative limelight, it will be interesting to see the showdown continue.

Because they scammed millions of dollars from viewers for a rigged fight, only to announce a second rigged fight to scam millions and millions of dollars more.
