Dillon Danis vs. Logan Paul could not get any uglier, we got to witness their press conference in Machester, UK, which was no less entertaining for the fans. The event that is going to happen on October 14 on the same card as KSI vs. Tommy Fury is more than just hyped up, as Bellator fighter Dillon Danis left no stone unturned to troll Logan Paul before their boxing bout.
Danis has been routinely sharing Logan’s fiancée, Nina Agdal pictures on social media with other men she has been with. He brought the same energy to the press conference, and he did not fail to comment on Agdal’s previous relationships there either. However, it seems like this has in some way backfired for Danis, as according to him, he was not treated the way he should have been by the organizers and Logan himself.
After things got really heated in the conference, Danis and Logan did not get to face off against each other, but instead, Paul got to face off against MMA veteran Mike Perry, who was also announced as the backup fighter if Danis pulled out of the fight.
This angered Danis, as he tweeted about the same and expressed that the organizers do not seem to realize how much he is doing to get people to talk about this fight.
Flying in the backup fighter, kicking me out of the press conference, no face-off, and cutting all my interviews—among other things—just keep killing the buzz I have for this fight. I’m tired of the disrespect. Maybe I’ll just go silent and let DAZN realize what I bring to the…

Although Danis had obviously gone too far with his social media trolling tactics, according to him, all of this was done to promote the fight. Fans would be hoping that Danis does not pull out of the fight after all the recent drama and that the two get a chance to settle things inside the ring, as the buildup to the fight has already made things more intense.
Logan Paul says Dillon Danis will pay $100,000 if he pulls out of their fight.
Dillon Danis is an MMA fighter who has just two fights under his name in Bellator and has not fought since June 2019. He is infamous for his comments on social media and for calling out people to fight him and then backing off. Most recently, he did this with Logan’s business partner, KSI, who was supposed to take on Danis earlier this year, but the latter pulled out of the fight just two weeks before the event.
So, to make sure this does not happen at this much-anticipated event, the WWE star has made a few arrangements. In the IMPAULSIVE podcast, Logan Paul expressed that Danis will have to pay $100,000 if he withdraws from the fight for a non-legitimate reason. He added that a doctor of their choice will verify if he states a medical reason.
So, canceling this bout will be a bold decision for Danis, but fans think that his recent tweet suggests that he might pull out of the fight once again. Do you also think that the MMA fighter will not show up on October 14 to fight Logan Paul? Do let us know in the comments.
