The world of combat sports is preparing for another eagerly anticipated showdown. YouTuber turned boxer Logan Paul is ready to take on former Bellator fighter Dillon Danis, a close friend and teammate of Conor McGregor.
The two are scheduled to meet in a boxing match on October 14 as part of the ‘PRIME Card’ event presented by Misfits Boxing. This bout is expected to bring closure to the intense rivalry between the two fighters. The trash-talking done by Danis has been disliked by many, as the popular opinion is that there are some limits to this, which Danis obviously did not care about.

UFC veteran Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera also feels the same, as he has recently criticized the former Bellator fighter for his constant attacks on Logan Paul’s fiancée, Nina Agdal. “His best attribute really is to say crazy shit on the internet. In my opinion, he’s going to run. People die for acting like that. You don’t go that far. I mean, you can’t do that.” – said the UFC bantamweight fighter on Bradley Martin’s Raw Talk.
‘Chito’ also believes that while Dillon Danis is a good grappler, he will not be able to survive against Logan Paul, an experienced boxer. For those unaware, Dillon Danis is a Jiu Jitsu champion and has only taken part in a couple of MMA fights in Bellator. Although Dillon has won both of his fights, he did not showcase any solid boxing skills as he used grappling to submit his opponent each time.
Many, including Marlon Vera, are betting on Logan Paul to win this matchup against Danis purely because of his experience in boxing.
Marlon Vera sends out a warning to Dillon Danis
Dillon Danis has been trash-talking quite brutally in order to create hype for his big showdown against Logan Paul on Oct. 14. While Logan Paul is ultimately at the receiving end, the main victim of Danis’ verbal attacks is Nina Agdal.
Dillon had resorted to using insults and sharing pictures of Nina online in an effort to provoke a reaction from his opponent. Most of these posts contain offensive content and are quite explicit in nature. While the internet is divided on the bad-mouthing being employed by Danis, Marlon Vera has some clear words for him. “If you do that to me, I will never sue you. But dude If I see you, it’s going to be bad.” said ‘Chito’ Vera
The UFC veteran further added that Dillon Danis’ behavior kind of gives an idea of him being a spoilt kid who comes from a financially well-off family. Vera also expressed that this level of trash-talking should be made ‘illegal’. Do you also find his argument valid? Let us know in the comments!
