Dillon Danis expects to fight Jake Paul or KSI after knocking out Logan Paul – but ultimate goal is UFC belt


Dillon Danis is not a fan of influencer boxing and only expects to remain in the sport for one more fight after he’s fought Logan Paul.

Conor McGregor’s long-time teammate will make his squared circle debut when he takes on Paul on the undercard of KSI vs Tommy Fury in Manchester on Saturday night.

Before Danis pursues his true goal of MMA glory, he expects to face at least one more YouTuber-turned-boxer and make a boatload of money in the process.

“I wanna be UFC champion,” Danis told talkSPORT’s Gareth A. Davies on Wednesday.

“But if Jake [Paul] offers me a big bag after this fight or KSI…

“I would imagine if I knocked out Logan, Jake is going to want to fight me, or KSI, one of them.”

Danis is not a fan of the sport and claims beating Paul will not be high on his list of accomplishments when his career in combat is over.

He added: “I’m not trying to box. MMA is my game.

“The money is obviously good in this, I can’t lie.

“When I’m on my death bed and I’m talking to my son, I’m not going to be telling him how I beat Logan Paul. I’m going to be telling him about my world championships and UFC championships. Who the f*** cares about Logan Paul?

“I don’t like boxing, it’s half a fight. When we get into a street fight, I’m not going to say, ‘Hey, let’s go get some gloves.’ We are going to fight for real and everyone knows I’m going to strangle him unconscious within seconds.

“These guys don’t know how to really fight. I hate being around these influencer, YouTube boxing guys because they walk around like they’re so tough but they don’t even know what fighting is.”
