There's a looooooot more to talk about with that last battle but we'll put it in a separate article coming soon.

Here's a quick synopsis though:

Diz and Cass had massive entourages and security was trying to clear the stage, to no avail. A bunch of FilmOn staff were spazzing that they were running out of time. Apparently the venue needed to close too. The fire marshall was apparently there and needed to get people off the stage. Cass spat some bars, got some reaction. Kept going, started getting boos. He eventually finished. Diz started, got some reaction, then got some boos. Then it was over. A fight almost broke out between both sides, though it was hard to tell who was involved. Everyone cleared out after that. Lots of people milling around outside. Stay tuned for further details.

For now, have a look at some of our lead-up material for the event:
