Logan Paul has extended a hefty challenge to Conor McGregor by offering a substantial bet. Set for October 14 in Manchester, England, Paul is returning to the boxing arena to face off against Dillon Danis, a MMA and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner who is closely associated with McGregor. Despite his lack of victories in the boxing realm, Paul managed to go eight rounds with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an exhibition match and has faced fellow influencer KSI twice, resulting in a draw during their amateur bout and a split decision loss for Paul in their professional rematch.
Notwithstanding his past failures, Paul’s confidence in defeating Danis is unwavering, prompting him to propose a $1 million wager to McGregor, asserting that he will triumph on the night of the fight. In a social media video, Paul directly challenged McGregor, stating, “I’m willing to bet a million dollars that I’ll beat your boy on October 14. Let’s see how confident you are. Imagine all the coke you can buy you f****** drug addict. Two dummies, one night, October 14. I’m f****** you both up.”
Danis, on his part, hasn’t been achieving notable success in the combat sports arena either. After making a mark in the jiu-jitsu realm, Danis transitioned to MMA in 2018, with a 2-0 record within the Bellator cage. However, he has been absent from competition since June 2019 and had a January 2023 exhibition match with KSI cancelled, with KSI’s team alleging that Danis withdrew due to inadequate preparation and being overweight.
In recent times, both McGregor and Danis have shared training session images on social media, and McGregor is unwavering in his belief that his long-time associate will emerge victorious. McGregor expressed, “Dillon will win for sure,” adding that they have even caught Paul’s team off-guard. He emphasized that he is guiding and training Danis, and he guarantees a win. Additionally, McGregor alluded to potentially imposing a financial penalty on Paul if he fails to show up for the fight, mirroring the proposed penalty that Paul himself mentioned for McGregor.
