- Influencer Logan Paul and MMA fighter Dillon Danis are scheduled to fight on Oct. 14, 2023.
- The two men have been trolling each other in the lead-up to the fight.
- A friend of Dillon's allegedly tried to shoot a friend of Logan's, but no one was hurt.
The fight was announced on Aug. 8, 2023, and it wasn't long before the men started taking jabs at each other on social media and IRL. Let's take a look at everything that has gone down between them leading up to their big fight.
Dillon Danis posted numerous photos of Logan Paul's fiancée Nina Agdal after the fight was announced.
In July 2023, Logan got engaged to model Nina Agdal.
Sometimes he captioned the photos with a provocative joke. He also made remarks claiming that Nina was promiscuous and incorrectly identified her as transgender during the Full Send Podcast.
As if that wasn't enough, he posted a topless photo of Nina and a photoshopped image of him grabbing Nina's butt. However, the photo was flagged by X for being digitally altered.
Dillon also spoke about Logan's future wedding. First, he claimed that he should crash it, then he proposed that they should make a bet. If he beats Logan, then Logan should make him his best man.
In response to Dillon Danis' social media trolling, Logan Paul allegedly sent him a cease and desist order.
Instead of firing back at Dillon on social media, Logan allegedly sent him a cease and desist order for posting photos of Nina.
Although it hasn't been confirmed by Logan himself, there are several posts about it on social media. Not to mention that Dillon retweeted tweets, like the one below, that discussed the order.
Dillon also hinted that he received the order when he tweeted, "Being in such a weird position really takes away from the fight for me, making it feel blah. I don't know how to feel; I never thought someone who filmed a dead person for a video would have limits."
The video Dillon is referencing was a 2018 clip uploaded to Logan's YouTube in which he discovered a suicide victim in the woods and continued to keep the camera rolling.
The exact details outlined in this supposed cease and desist order are unknown.
Previously, a friend of Dillon Danis allegedly tried to shoot Logan Paul's friend Mike Maljak.
Mike is very close with Logan as well as Logan's younger brother, pro boxer Jake Paul. On a 2022 episode of the Flagrant podcast with Andrew Schultz, Logan claimed that were all at a party together in New York and one of Dillon's friends tried to shoot Mike.
"Actually, here in New York one time, Actually Dillon, me and Jake have all been kind of beefing for some time. We were at a party, this is when Dillon was on the crutches and one of his boys pulled a gun on Mike,” Logan said. Fortunately, the trigger was never pulled.
Dillon also spoke on the incident during an episode of the Full Send Podcast, telling a slightly different story. According to Dillon, Mike got into a verbal scuffle with someone and he stepped in, while on crutches, and diffused the situation so neither Mike, Logan, or Paul got hurt.
