Logan Paul’s fight with Dillon Danis descended into chaos after the MMA star tried to take his opponent down with a jiu-jitsu move in the final round of their bout in Manchester on Saturday night.
Security was forced to swarm into the ring to separate the two fighters, with Paul’s corner taking to the canvas to defend their fighter. Danis’ team joined them in the ring as a mass brawl broke out.
Security dragged both fighters back to their corners, with a sea of body guards between them. Danis was heard shouting face me in a ‘jiu-jitsu’ fight while the arena blared out I predict a riot.
Once things settled down, Michael Buffer announced that Paul had won the bout via disqualification. Danis was less than impressed, shaking his head before storming out of the ring.

It was a wild ending to a fight that had seen Paul’s fiancee targeted by Danis in the build-up
You could see the anger and hatred in Paul’s eyes as he made his way to the ring. Violence was the only thing on the 28-year-old’s mind. There was no way he was going to let Danis humiliate him and his partner further.
So, beating the MMA star is exactly what Paul did. It may not have been pretty and may not have been a textbook performance, but Paul got the job done – ending the contest via disqualification.
Paul was overcome with emotion after the fight, screaming ‘c’mon’ before saying: ‘I forgave Dillon before this fight started. But he called himself a real fighter? What are you talking about? Hey McGregor I took your bitch on a leash and took him for a walk! Who’s the real fighter now? If Dillon pays me his whole purse I’ll do him in MMA as well.’
He went on to add: ‘This is a hobby for me. I’m a WWE superstar. I’m moving back to the WWE. I have my eye on something, on someone. I’m an American boy. I want that US title. Rey Mysterio I already beat you once and I’m coming for that championship. Maybe if Conor McGregor wants to stand up for his bitch I’ll face him next year.’
Paul’s bout with Danis was a completely one-sided beat down. Danis talked a good game ahead of their bout on Saturday night but failed to deliver. He spent more time talking to Paul in the ring than throwing punches.
Meanwhile, Paul looked far more energetic than his previous fights. It came as no surprise that the WWE star came flying out of the corner, throwing multiple left jabs and right hands to the body.
There is no denying his training for KSI and Floyd Mayweather involved rigorous exercise, but those fights were more about gaining exposure and building his profile. Whereas, this fight against Danis was all about his manhood.
However, it didn’t take long for Logan’s cut from the press conference on Thursday to start weeping. That didn’t stop him from throwing a series of combinations in second round.

Danis offered barely any threat to Paul whatsoever across the course of the fight itself

But, Paul’s combinations were causing Danis very little issue as the WWE star was failing to plant his feet and connect effectively. Nevertheless, he was winning every round.
After throwing hardly any punches, Danis decided to mock Paul by laying on the ground during the third round of the fight. The referee was forced to signal ‘no knockdown’.
Danis continued to mock Paul by asking the WWE star to face him in a jiu-jitsu match in the middle of their fight. Paul was clearly irritated and shook his head before following up with a left jab.
It wasn’t long before Danis gave up boxing and resorted to jiu-jitsu. Paul was furious and could be seen shouting at the MMA’s star’s corner as they taunted him from ringside.
But, it was in the final round that things transcended into chaos. Danis tried to tackle Paul to the floor before kicking the WWE star from the ground. Paul then retreated back to his corner before his team climbed through the ropes.
Danis charged at Paul’s corner team and started swinging. As a result, security took to the canvas to prevent the scenes from turning… even more ugly!
