Conor McGregor has expressed complete confidence that Dillon Danis will attend his planned boxing match with Logan Paul. He countered recent rumors, stating that it’s actually Paul who seems unsure, not Danis. In the past, Danis has pulled out of numerous prominent fights, leading to derision from the MMA world. However, McGregor, speaking ahead of the Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenius bout, accused Paul of waffling and declared that he would be assisting Danis in his preparation.
Furthermore, with a potential $100,000 fine looming over Danis if he withdraws from the match, McGregor has assured that they would reciprocate if the situation were reversed. McGregor firmly believes in Danis’s victory, stating, “They’re already retreating; they’re abandoning the fight. I’ve known and trained with Dillon for years. I’m his guide and coach for this, and I promise a win.”
He also emphasized his hope that Logan Paul would not back out, warning, “He attempted to impose a fine on us if we don’t attend; we’ll do the same if he fails to appear.”
The lead-up to the fight has been contentious. Danis has been taunting Paul online, even involving the WWE wrestler’s fiancée, Nina Agdal. He also recently complained that Misfits Boxing is “silencing” him, and threatened to cancel the fight based on how he has promoted it so far.
However, Danis has clarified that he is “fully committed” to entering the ring and that everything is fair in the promotion of the fight.
McGregor expressed satisfaction with Danis’s mental state after recent training sessions, mentioning that he would also prepare for his upcoming fight, likely against Michael Chandler, a coach from The Ultimate Fighter 31.
McGregor affirmed, “I will definitely train him. After this, I’m entering my own training camp. I’ll gather our team, bring Dillon along. I’ve been with him in New York for around a month, and he’s mentally strong, fired up.”
Reflecting on Danis’s recovery from a difficult phase, McGregor concluded, “He was in a tough place. Now he’s bounced back, and he’s doing great. I was thrilled to witness it, and I fully support him.”
