We asked Adam Saleh, “How do you respond to people who say it’s not real”? Zoom to 2.52 for his response

It’s about the smack talk, it’s about the pre-fight drama… and the public lap it up

It’s fight-tainment, that takes us right back to the golden WWE days which blurred the lines between fiction and reality.

What’s undoubtedly real is the internet clout that’s earned from a win. The passion from the fighters and the very real wars going down in the comments before the fight is enough to get the popcorn out. Money Kick THREW FLOUR at his opponment ahead of the fight. This is unheard of, but it racked out thousnads of views, and intense media coverage. These people know how to make content better than anyone, so they’re bringing the drama ahead of the night.

Influencer fighting will attract viewers from all over the world thanks to the massive fan reach these fighters have

Slim Al Baher, one YouTuber who’s taking part this weekend has friends and family flying in from all over to be in Dubai on Fight Night. He called this fight ‘mental warfare’. He said it’s not about the fight, it’s about getting into the fighters psyche months in advance.
