Dillon Danis has become the most notorious bad boy in the world since his fight with Logan Paul was announced. The pair will duke it out in Manchester, UK, on October 14. Surprisingly, it is not the main event of the evening where KSI will take on Tyson Fury. The announcement started a snowball effect, as Danis, in an attempt to promote the fight, adopted the scorched earth strategy.
El Jefe went after the personal life of Logan Paul, especially his fiancee, Nina Agdal’s past relationships with celebrities such as Leonardo Di Caprio, Adam Levin, and Joe Jonas, to name a few. The saga certainly has the world’s attention, and even caused notable UFC stars to note Dillon Danis. One such star is the newly crowned bantamweight champion of the UFC, Sean O’Malley.
Fun fact: In the lead-up to UFC 229, while doing hard sparring sessions with Conor for the Khabib fight, I broke my zygomatic arch and orbital bone, so I think I’m just stuck like this 😂 https://t.co/Jy178gcSxk pic.twitter.com/HckQZYMH3L

In a state of haze caused by the use of paraphernalia, O’Malley reached out to Danis and asked him a rather personal question regarding his appearance on social media. “You always have a lazy eye or just sometimes ? Sorry high af right now can’t tell.” This was directed at the one eye of Danis’, which always appears droopy.
Danis, without taking offense at the champ’s direct question, responded with a rather logical retort. “Fun fact: In the lead-up to UFC 229, while doing hard sparring sessions with Conor for the Khabib fight, I broke my zygomatic arch and orbital bone, so I think I’m just stuck like this 😂
Apparently, El Jefe injured his face during the training camp for Conor McGregor’s fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. As a result, his face always has that lazy eye effect. It was common knowledge that Dillon Danis was part of the McGregor training camp, and now McGregor seems to be returning the favor.
Dillon Danis will have Conor McGregor in his training camp for the Logan Paul fight
Conor McGregor, being a loyal friend, has vowed to train alongside Dillon Danis for his upcoming debut in boxing against Logan Paul on the Misfits boxing Prime Card. The two have already had a few training sessions in New York, according to Conor McGregor.
He added, “I’m getting into camp myself now, after this. [I’ve] got a team organised, and I’m gonna bring Dillon on board and just monitor him. I’ve been training with him when I was in New York – I was in New York for about a month or so. He’s in a great space mentally, he’s built himself up; he was in a bad spot, he’s picked himself up, now he’s in a great spot.”
“It’s great to see. I back him all the way, I train with him, and I know he’s got this.” Said McGregor at the 02 Arena in London, where Anthony Joshua demolished Robert Helenius.
He further declared his full support and confidence in Danis, and remarked that he will pose too big a threat for Logan Paul. The Notorious and El Jefe could arguably be two of the best trash talkers and promoters in the history of the fight game. Do you guys think Conor McGregor’s experience will help Dillon Danis gain his first victory in the boxing ring?
