I dunno if you heard but pro-gamer Douglas Martin lost the Call of Duty League Championship weeks after dumping the ‘world’s sexiest weathergirl’, Yanet Garcia, so he could practise more. The ultimate lesson in ‘Wow Doug, don’t do that!’
Mexican gamer Douglas ‘Censor’ Martin hit the headlines when he finished with Garcia to concentrate on the online championship, but angrily told his 1.3 million Twitter followers after crashing out of the competition: ‘No I do not want Yanet back!’
Fans thought he was mad to end his long-term relationship with the 27-year-old weather reporter, and so did her whopping 7.2 million Instagram fan base, but Martin insists he has no regrets.
I came back this year and said I was winning champs. I feel so bad. Really thought our team could do it. GG to the competition and GL to the rest. Until next year 👊🏻

I came back this year and said I was winning [the] championship. I feel so bad. I really thought our team could do it.
Explaining to his followers how he felt when he split with Yanet, Doug said:
She’s beautiful, she’s smart, she was an awesome girlfriend.
I know it sounds weird I’m saying all this…it’s just, I gotta do what feels right for me.
In the video, he opened up about flying ‘all the way out to Mexico’ from New York three years ago, in order to meet her. They soon started to date and Yanet moved to New York for a year.
However, things changed when Yanet decided to go back to Mexico to continue her job as a weather reporter and to pursue a career in acting and modelling.
I supported her decision. She wanted to be a supermodel actress – chase your dreams, life’s too short. I’m playing Call of Duty full-time now and she wanted to take her job opportunity. I didn’t think it was going to be that difficult. Back then it was a lot easier for me to go out and see her. But now I have obligations.
I’m on a contract. It’s not like I don’t want to do this, this is the career that I want. I want to win a ring, I want to win a world championship, what I want in my life at this very moment is to compete in Call of Duty because I love it so much. I’m going to do whatever it takes to be a champion.
There’s only 24 hours in a day and I just didn’t have enough time to do what I needed to do.
Yanet subsequently responded to his apology. Appearing on TV show Hoy (Today) to reveal her thoughts about the split, Garcia spoke of the ‘difficult days’ since it ended.
She said as per the Mirror:
So, I am relaxed, at peace, I keep what was good about the relationship in my heart. We were in a long distance relationship, it was very difficult.
I actually do not judge him, on the contrary I wish him all the success, I hope that he wins that championship and it gives him all that he wants.
We were a couple working in social media, and he had commitments with his followers while I have my job and projects.
When asked if she could envision a time when they could get back together, Garcia said, ‘No, I do not think so. I trust God, he has something else for me.’
A few days following the split she tweeted: ‘Never listen to the advice of a person has not done anything good with his life.’ Scathing stuff if I ever saw it.
This is wounding stuff for Doug, theres’ no beating around the bush here. Maybe he had a point when he said he needed to focus more and this is just a new leaf. In order to win you must first learn how to lose, all that stuff.
Doug, we go again.
