Conor McGregor reveals why he couldn’t train Dillon Danis for Logan Paul fight

Dillon Danis, a former Bellator fighter and a jiu-jitsu specialist, is set to face Logan Paul, a YouTube star and a controversial figure, in a boxing match on October 14 in Manchester, England. The fight is part of the undercard of the KSI vs. Tommy Fury event, which is expected to draw a huge audience and generate a lot of revenue.

The fight between Danis and Paul has been brewing for a long time, as the two have exchanged insults and challenges on social media. Paul has also been involved in a feud with Conor McGregor, Danis’ friend and former teammate, who famously fought Floyd Mayweather and Khabib Nurmagomedov in boxing and MMA respectively.

Danis and Paul are both confident of their abilities and have claimed that they will knock out their opponent. However, many fans and experts are curious about how Danis will fare in a boxing match, given that he is known for his grappling skills and has not competed in MMA since 2019.

Conor McGregor promises to train Dillon Danis for Logan Paul fight

When the fight between Danis and Paul was announced, Conor McGregor surprised many by saying that he would train Danis for the fight. McGregor, who is one of the biggest stars in combat sports history, has a lot of experience and knowledge in striking and boxing. He also has a close relationship with Danis, who was part of his camp for his fights against Mayweather and Nurmagomedov.

McGregor’s offer to train Danis was seen as a sign of support and loyalty, as well as a way to get back at Paul, who has repeatedly called out McGregor for a fight. Many fans were excited to see how McGregor would help Danis improve his boxing skills and prepare him for the fight.

However, with just about two weeks remaining for the fight, it seems that McGregor has not been able to train Danis as he promised. The reason behind this is revealed by McGregor himself in a recent interview.

Conor McGregor explains why he couldn’t train Dillon Danis for Logan Paul fight

In an interview with All Out Fighting, McGregor was asked to give his prediction for the Dillon Danis vs. Logan Paul fight. While McGregor backed Danis to win the fight, he also explained why he couldn’t train him as he planned.

McGregor said: “Dillon’s gonna win, Dillon will win. You know, he had the baby we didn’t get to train together. So, don’t know the ins and outs, I know he’s doing well.”

McGregor was referring to the fact that Danis became a father in August this year, when his girlfriend Savannah Montano gave birth to their son Zane. This might have affected Danis’ training schedule and availability, as well as McGregor’s ability to travel and meet him.

McGregor himself has been recovering from a leg injury that he suffered in his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier in July this year. He has been undergoing surgery and rehabilitation, and has not been able to resume full training yet. He is expected to return to action next year, possibly against Michael Chandler.

Conor McGregor still confident of Dillon Danis’ victory over Logan Paul

Despite not being able to train Dillon Danis for the Logan Paul fight, Conor McGregor still expressed his confidence in his friend’s abilities and predicted that he would win the fight.

McGregor said: “Dillon will win for sure. He’s got the skills, he’s got the heart, he’s got the mindset. He’s a warrior. He’ll go in there and do the business.”

McGregor also said that he would be watching the fight and supporting Danis from afar. He said: “I’ll be cheering him on from here. I’m proud of him. He’s doing great things. He’s making history.”

McGregor also hinted that he might face Logan Paul himself in the future, if Paul manages to beat Danis. He said: “Maybe I’ll give him [Paul] a shot after Dillon finishes him. We’ll see what happens.”
