Dillon Danis is poised to rake in substantial earnings following his much-anticipated boxing match against Logan Paul. The controversial MMA star recently engaged in a discussion about his upcoming boxing debut. He confidently asserted that his earnings from the bout with Paul would be more than the income of numerous UFC champions.
Scheduled for a long-awaited return to combat sports, Danis is set to square off against Paul in a boxing match slated for October 14. The electrifying showdown is earmarked for the Misfits X DAZN event, titled “The Prime Card.” It is set to take in Manchester, England.
Sharing the co-headlining spotlight with the KSI vs. Tommy Fury spectacle, the Danis vs. Paul bout promises an exhilarating night of action.
The financial difference between high-profile boxers and their MMA counterparts is no secret, and this trend persists even within the realm of influencer boxing. Given Logan Paul’s widespread recognition, it comes as no surprise that Dillon Danis boldly proclaims his potential to out earn the majority of UFC stalwarts.
During a recent appearance on the FullSend Podcast, Danis disclosed that he is poised to pocket more than any UFC competitor (besides the biggest MMA stars). When questioned about the magnitude of the paycheck, Danis said:
“It’s a lot bigger… I’m making more than anybody in the UFC besides Izzy [Israel Adesanya], Conor [McGregor], and maybe Islam [Makhachev]. Definitely making more than Volk [Alexander Volkanovski], and all those guys and I haven’t fought in four years.”
In the same podcast, Dillon Danis provocatively asserted his capacity to overcome the likes of Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou in a cage match. Additionally, he claimed that Ngannou had withdrawn from an impending showdown against him.
He said: “I wanted the Francis fight, he pulled out too… In a no-time limit fight?… Pull guard on him in two seconds and arm-bar him… He wouldn’t know what to do… I swear.”
Danis went on to say: “I’ll fight any of these guys… Jon Jones hates me. [You can’t beat Jon Jones] Stop it. You don’t know fighting, bro… Why’d he block me, then?… These guys are scared of me.”
Dillon Danis undeniably occupies a polarizing position within combat sports. While his skills in Brazilian jiu-jitsu once held the promise of a flourishing MMA career, he subsequently chose to develop his identity as an online troll. Since April 2018, Danis has only competed successfully twice as a Bellator welterweight.
