Logan Paul: Dillon Danis win could set up Conor McGregor fight

  • Tom Ward

Logan Paul genuinely thinks he can get Conor McGregor‘s attention with a big win over Dillon Danis.

The YouTube star-turned-boxer went on True Geordie’s podcast to discuss his next move in boxing.

And of course, it didn’t take long for Paul to start talking up the possibility of a crossover bout with ‘The Notorious’.

His brother Jake Paul has called out the UFC superstar plenty of times in the past, having built up a rivalry with the world’s premier mixed martial arts organisation.

But Logan it seems is ready to pull rank on his younger sibling as he apparently wants first dibs on fighting McGregor.

When discussing his next opponent, Paul said: “There’s levels to this s***.

“Number one, you have to be able to sell a fight. Then, number two, I don’t think that those fights would be on par [with Danis].

“I don’t believe that people would think ‘that could be a good fight’. This could also set me up for a potential Conor fight, should that ever happen. Jake’s also trying to fight Conor, either myself or Jake will fight Conor McGregor eventually.

Logan Paul fancies a fight with Conor McGregor

“With Conor, you’re not taking a crazy f***ing risk, maybe you are. Because if Conor McGregor loses to Jake or I, that’s tough, that’s a legacy destroyer.”

How does he plan on doing so, you may ask?

Well, it appears that Paul already has an idea in mind, starting first and foremost with McGregor’s old pal Danis.

He added: “I’m going to piece up Dillon Danis. Everyone would love that. That dude is the gum that sticks to the bottom of your shoe when you walk down the street, that dude sucks.

“I’m going to shut his a** up, he’ll talk about getting in the ring with me, he’ll do his talking online that will get a little attention.

Where was Conor McGregor born?

“But the moment you sign that contract, the moment that you’re in the ring across from me the story’s going to change a little bit.

“It’s much scarier than he thinks, he’s going to get hit with a shot where he wakes up and realises ‘oh f***, I’ve made a grave error’.”

“Bro, I won’t be in there for more than four rounds. I’m going to feel him out a little bit and then it won’t be more than a few rounds.

“We’ll attempt to make this fight, I will give him an offer and he will probably be like ‘this is not what I’m worth, blah blah blah’. Yeah it is bucko, you’re not even worth that because I will find someone.

“I will find a person who will sign on the dotted line, I will make that someone extremely f***ing rich and famous for the rest of their life. Sure, it will be incredibly embarrassing, you’ll get Tyron Woodley’d and you’re going to be a meme.”
