Jake Paul is looking for a new opponent for his next boxing match, and MMA fighter Dillon Danis seems up to the task.
Jake Paul is looking for a new opponent for his next boxing endeavor, and Dillon Danis seems up to the task. The two have been trading shady messages on social media, but things have escalated recently.
After Jake Paul’s latest KO against NBA star Nate Robinson, Dillon Danis was on his shortlist of new celebrity callouts. Dillon, who fights for Bellator, is most notable for being Conor Mcgregor’s Jiu-Jitsu coach in Ireland. As a BJJ black belt, he placed first in the IBJJF Pan No Gi Championships and holds a 2-0 record in MMA with two submissions. Naturally, as a grappling based mixed martial artist, Jake sees Dillon as a perfect opponent in his burgeoning pro boxing career. Additionally, the challenge would supplant Jake’s status in martial arts, as Dillon would be a huge step up in competition from his previous two celebrity opponents.

Since the initial callout by Jake Paul, he and Dillon Danis has refused to hold back against each other on social media. After Jake proclaimed that he is interested in fighting Dillon and thinks he would knock him out, Dillon reacted in a tweet (seen below): “You just fought a retired nba reject be careful what you wish for little guy.” Jake then responded on his Twitter with: “I’m wiping my a** with Dillon Danis then Jake Paul vs @NotoriousMMA will happen.” After exchanging more words on social media, Dillon was ambushed in a drive-by where Jake hit Dillon in the face with toilet paper and water balloons. Jake tweeted out a video of this interaction (also seen below). The pro fighter was noticeably shaken and later asked Brendan Schaub if they should get in his car and pursue Jake and his friends.

After the drive-by incident, Jake Paul posted images of a video call he had with Dillon Danis’ girlfriend Savannah Montano. Dillon has since commented that bringing his girlfriend into the mix was “going too far” and that now things are personal between the two. To add even more gasoline to the fire, the MMA fighter has posted screenshots of harassment he’s received from Jake’s older brother, Logan Paul, in a post where he claims that the “Paul family is full of p*****s”. Evidently, it seems like Danis may be in line to fight both Paul and his brother.
As of this moment, Logan Paul is set to face boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr in February 2021. In turn, Jake Paul has gone on to leak the whopping $1 million fight offer he’s sent to Dillon Danis. However, this may be another jab at the MMA star, as Jake previously offered Conor McGregor $50 million for a boxing match.
