Jake Paul Claims Dillon Danis Turned Down Seven Figures To Fight Him
YouTube sensation Jake Paul claims Dillon Danis has turned down a “life-changing” seven-figure fight deal from his side.
Paul and Danis’ war of words has escalated as of late, with the former recently launching a ‘drive-by’ attack on Conor McGregor’s teammate, throwing water balloons and toilet papers at him while he was recording a road-side interview for ‘Below the Belt’ with Brendan Schaub.
‘Scared’ Danis Turned Down The Fight
Speaking on the Nelk Boys Twitch stream (as transcribed by BJPenn.com), Paul accused ‘f***ing coward’ Danis of being ‘scared’ to step inside a boxing ring with him, after turning down a seven figure sum to fight him.
“Look, there is a lot of people, Ben Askren, half of the UFC is calling me out,” Paul said. “[Danis] is scared. He’s scared. We have a deal out to him right now, a life-changing deal for him. This guy lives in New York in a little f***ing apartment and has f**ing and has some Yeezy’s he puts on every day, and thinks he’s fitted. This guy is a f***ing, this guy is the f***ing joke of the jiu-jitsu world. Nobody f***ing likes him.
“So, we put a life-changing offer on the table for Dillon Danis and he is blaming a knee injury. He has four months from now to train. This guy is a f***ing coward, this guy is scared of me. He talks s*** online but when the deal is put in front of him, seven figures, life-changing, he all of the sudden doesn’t want to do it.”
Earlier this month, Bellator CEO Scott Coker said that a fight between Paul and Danis is likely to happen at some point in the future, whether it is in a boxing ring, or a car park.
Danis is recovering from a reconstructive knee surgery he had in March, and it is unknown when he will return back to action. The BJJ ace is currently 2-0 in his MMA career. Paul is 2-0 in his boxing career.
