In a melee with MMA fighter Dillon Danis, KSI has been hit with a plastic cup and soaked by its contents.
KSI – real name Olajide William Olatunji – is in Austin Texas to promote his latest boxing venture X Series, a partnership with his Misfits boxing brand and DAZN.
Although he’s not fighting on the card, he still found centre stage by being involved in a confrontation with Danis – a former sparring partner of Conor McGregor and inactive MMA fighter.
There’s talk of signing a contract before Danis, as you do, asks KSI if he wants to be choked. In response, the British superstar says he could knock Danis out if he wanted to.
Thing escalated from there, with the rapper / fighter soaked by Danis’ Starbucks as they were separated by security and the American was escorted from the room.

The familiar call of Shannon Briggs inexplicably shouting ‘let’s go champ’ over and over can be heard in the background as KSI looks to brawl with Danis, who has been calling out stars of similar experience for years now.
Olatunji is in the market for an opponent for his next outing in the ring as he looks to build on a three-fight, three-win career in the sport. Whilst many assume that he will meet Jake Paul in the ring one day – perhaps the fight to end all YouTube boxing – that’s unlikely to be the fight that’s made next.
With everybody on the fringes of the sport, or even famous in other ways, looking for a piece of this money-making crossover bout pie, fans can now add Danis’ name into the hat of men KSI may step through the ropes with.
