Ever since the announcement that Dillon Danis would be making his highly-anticipated return to the competitive arena on October 14th, the Bellator standout has been trolling Logan Paul.
Dillon Danis’ last professional appearance dates back to his remarkable back-to-back first-round submission victories under the banner of Bellator in 2019.
However, a new chapter is set to unfold this fall as Danis prepares to don the eight-ounce gloves for a high-stakes clash against social media sensation and WWE Superstar Logan Paul. The showdown is scheduled to take place in Manchester, England.
Additionally, Paul’s business partner KSI will be headlining another bout against the undefeated British boxing sensation Tommy Fury.
Though the actual match may be several months away, Danis may have already claimed an early victory in the area of mental warfare. Logan Paul’s team reportedly issued a cease and desist order against Danis. As told by Danis, Paul warned that he might withdraw from the bout unless Danis ceases his online provocations.
What exactly has Dillon Danis done? Much of the tension revolves around Paul’s fiancée, Nina Agdal.
Danis didn’t hold back, ridiculing Agdal’s past relationships with prominent stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio and LeBron James. Adding fuel to the fire, Danis took an audacious step by sharing explicit images of Agdal.
In a subsequent post, Danis alluded to having more content at his disposal but implied that external forces prevent him from utilizing it.
He wrote: “I wish I could provide more entertainment for all of you. I love doing what I do, but my hands are tied in this situation. The fight is at a critical point.”
When questioned by an online user if he felt restricted after launching a relentless trolling campaign, Danis responded with a cryptic: “Yea or Logan is out.”
Dillon Danis didn’t stop there. Through a series of posts on Twitter, Danis unveiled the layers of hypocrisy exhibited by Paul.
Danis stated: “Being in such a weird position really takes away from the fight for me, making it feel blah. I don’t know how to feel; I never thought someone who filmed a dead person for a video would have limits.”
He continued: “I’m fully committed to this fight and have been carrying the whole card’s promotion on my back. The Pauls and I have had beef since forever. Just imagine how you’d feel. Jake attacked my ex, fabricated stories about me impregnating someone, attacked my best friend’s fiancée.”
“Logan ridiculed me for years, attacked Floyd’s wife, filmed a deceased person, scammed millions. KSI went after my mom, the list goes on. Now I finally get to settle our feud, and this whole thing is complete bullshit—we both have a signed contract. This isn’t a tennis match; this is the fight business.”
Dillon also tweeted: “I know a lot of you hate me, but one thing you gotta respect is that I’ve taken every diss from everyone for years. You’ve never seen me block one of you, cry, or crawl into a ball. If you’re gonna talk shit, don’t cry when it comes back—it’s part of the game.”
Despite reducing his trolling of the older Paul sibling, Dillon Danis still uses the chance to attack from time to time.
