In a recent episode of The MMA Hour, Ariel Helwani meticulously scrutinized every claim made by Bellator star Dillon Danis.
The conversation revolved around Danis’ decision to step into the boxing ring with Logan Paul. The two also talked about the intense buildup to the match that is now intertwined with personal animosity. Additionally, Danis disclosed a substantial fee for promotional content on his social media platforms.
Danis confidently stated:
“I don’t understand why no one understands how I make money and why my Instagram is so popular. I get paid $15 thousand a story, like more than that for a story or a tweet.”
Helwani expressed skepticism regarding Danis’ assertions. He introduced the Dillon Lie Counter, emphasizing that he believed this to be the first lie of the interview.
Helwani playfully questioned Danis’ claim that he earns a hefty $15 thousand for a mere Instagram story or tweet, stating:
“I don’t believe you. This is the first lie of the day? Last time you came with like 20 lies…In fact, we’re ready for this…There it is, there’s the first lie…So we’re just gonna count em so at the end we could fact check em, but right now it’s a lie.”
With the lie counter prominently displayed, the exchange between Helwani and Danis took on an entertaining tone.
During the interview on The MMA Hour, Dillon Danis voiced his reservations about Logan Paul being clean on PEDs.
Danis elucidated the specifics of the planned testing. He asserted that the scheduled urine test allows Paul to strategically cleanse his system of any PEDs before the actual date of examination.
Danis stated: “Logan, now that I brought it up [d**g testing], wants to do testing and he wants to do a set date before the fight…So he did the cycle, he did whatever, and now he’s gonna try and take a pi*s test and clear it and be like, ‘Oh, I’m clean’. That doesn’t count…With the money he has, you can have a doctor clean your system in over 24 hours.”
Danis didn’t mince words in addressing the potential loophole in the testing process, adding another layer of intrigue to an already anticipated match.
