YouTuber Logan Paul and MMA fighter Dillon Danis are set to square off on Oct. 14 in Manchester, England. On Monday, Paul challenged Conor McGregor on social media by putting $1,000,000 on the line.
The founder of Prime Drink is so confident about his victory that he urged McGregor to take the bet. Since he has bet over the fight, comments are filled with aggression, saying he should pay CryptoZoo victims instead.
“Dillon will win for sure” – Conor McGregor
The trash-talk has already begun after the declaration of the fight. Conor McGregor is currently training Dillon Danis, and after hearing the challenge of Logan Paul, he quipped telling Matchroom Boxing this past weekend: “Dillon will win for sure.”
“They’re already backtracking right now. They woke an animal. [I’ve known] Dillon years and I’ve trained with him many times. I’m guiding him, I’m gonna train him for this and I guarantee a win.”
The trash talk was fuelled after the ex-UFC featherweight and lightweight champion replied to Paul’s $1M challenge. And it is not pulling out all the stops between the Influencer and MMA fighter.
It has started to feed each other’s egos and become more like personal attacks. Danis is repeatedly taking aim at the YouTuber’s fiancé, Nina Agdal, in the name of trash talk.
He has posted pictures and videos of Adgal with other men, alleging promiscuity in her dating history, which is neither related to the fight nor looks like the retort to the trash talk.
Logan Paul to Return Can Double the $1M Bet, But Can’t Repay CryptoZoo Victims
In response, the older Paul brother has doubled the bet to $2 million, saying:
“Conor you know what? I’ll tell you what Mr Moneybags, imma make this more interesting for you. How about we double it. Two million dollars. Two million dollars that I beat your boy Dillon Danis.”
Since he has doubled the bet, people are pressing and criticizing the YouTuber for not repaying the money to CryptoZoo victims. One user commented when Paul doubled the amount for his self-pride:
“How can he say this without any shame, knowing damn well he “pledged” over 1 million to CryptoZoo victims.”
The comments make so much sense because CryptoZoo (crypto-based videogame) promised people to make millions, and now proved very much like a scam. Investigative journalist CoffeeZilla exposed the whole CryptoZoo scam in January of this year. According to him, some investors ended up losing up to half a million dollars.
