Logan Paul and Jake Paul have had a long-running feud with BJJ ace and occasional MMA competitor Dillon Danis. According to Paul, the feud was on the verge of exploding during a terrifying encounter in New York.
Danis had a lot of success on the BJJ circuit before expressing his ambition to participate in MMA. An IBJJF World No-Gi Championship, two IBJJF Pan American No-Gi championships, and four Grappling World championships are among his achievements. During an appearance on the Flagrant 2 podcast, Logan said that someone in Danis’ entourage pulled out a gun and pointed it at Paul’s buddy and podcast co-host Mike Majlak after a chance encounter.
“This could also set me up for a potential Conor fight”- Logan Paul’s reasoning for calling out Dillon Danis
After long-standing feuds with both him and his younger brother, Jake, Paul is still willing to meet Danis in the ring if he can get himself fit. A mega-money agreement with Triller was on the table for Danis to fight the younger sibling, but the jiu-jitsu black belt backed out of discussions, leaving Paul to face the younger sibling.
In a recent podcast with True Geordie, Logan stated, “I don’t believe that people would think ‘that could be a good fight’. This could also set me up for a potential Conor fight, should that ever happen. Jake’s also trying to fight Conor, either myself or Jake will fight Conor McGregor eventually. With Conor, you’re not taking a crazy f***ing risk, maybe you are. Because if Conor McGregor loses to Jake or I, that’s tough, that’s a legacy destroyer.”
Seeing this, Dillon took some time to respond to his callout, he took to Twitter and stated, “see you soon”. Dillon is ready to give an opportunity to share the ring with him.
Logan’s wish to compete with him would come true if the fight would happen but it would be highly unlikely that Conor McGregor would give Logan any time of his day. He is currently focused on making a comeback either at the lightweight division against Charles Olivera to be the first 2-time lightweight champion of the UFC or fight Kamaru Usman to be the first-ever 3-weight division champion of the UFC. Amidst such aspirations, a boxing match against Logan Paul wouldn’t excite the first-ever “Champ-Champ”. Yet, one can only speculate and sit back to see how the cards unfold.
