Logan Paul called out Conor McGregor for a $1 million bet surrounding his upcoming fight against Dillon Danis.
On October 14, Paul and Danis will meet inside the AO Arena in Manchester, England, for a six-round boxing match. Most fans and analysts believe Paul will emerge victorious. With that said, one legendary fighter has no doubt Danis is getting his hand raised in the co-main event of “The Prime Card.”
McGregor attended Anthony Joshua’s latest boxing match against Robert Helenius on August 12. ‘The Notorious’ was featured in several interviews throughout the night, leading to a handful of viral clips.
During an interview with Matchroom Boxing, McGregor was asked about Paul vs. Danis. The former two-division UFC champion responded by saying:
“Dillon [Danis] will win for sure. They’re already backtracking right now. They woke an animal. I know Dillon years, and I’ve trained with him many times. I’ve helped, I’m guiding him. I’m gonna train him for this, and I guarantee a win. So, I hope the lad shows up. He tried to put a bill on us if we don’t show up. We’re gonna see. We’re gonna come at him with a bill if he don’t show up.”
McGregor referenced how Danis must pay a $100,000 fine if he doesn’t show up to fight Paul. The contract stipulation was utilized because ‘El Jefe’ was scheduled to compete in a boxing match against KSI earlier this year. Unfortunately, the former Bellator fighter pulled out for undisclosed reasons, forcing Misfits Boxing to find a replacement opponent.
In the space of a few hours Conor McGregor has:
-Announced that he'll train Dillon Danis to fight Logan Paul.
-Called out KSI to a bare-knuckle fight.
Safe to say Conor will not be buying any PRIME anytime soon. 🤣 pic.twitter.com/v0jCq4jKgo

Logan Paul calls out Conor McGregor for $1 million bet guaranteeing he beats Dillon Danis
Logan Paul has been oozing confidence since his boxing match with Dillon Danis was announced. The 28-year-old saw Conor McGregor’s quotes from above and issued the former UFC champion a high-stakes wager. He had this to say in a video posted on Twitter:
“If you’re so confident in your boy, I got a bet for you. I’d bet Dillon [Danis], but he’s a broke b*tch. I got a million dollars that says I beat your boy on October 14th. Come on, bro, come on. I know you’re caked up. Let’s see how confident you are. Imagine all the coke you can buy, you f*cking drug addict. Two dummies, one night. October 14th, I’m f*cking you both up.”
Dillon Danis must shake off ring rust to secure a win against Logan Paul. The 29-year-old last fought in June 2019, extending his professional MMA record to 2-0 with his second first-round submission under the Bellator banner.
Meanwhile, Paul last fought in an exhibition boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr in June 2021, ending in a no-decision draw. Besides the fight against Mayweather Jr, the host of IMPAULSIVE has fought two other times, a professional loss and an amateur draw against KSI.
