MMA star partners with crypto casino ahead of Logan Paul bout
A controversial fight star has sealed a deal with a leading crypto casino site ahead of an upcoming bout with the YouTube sensation Logan Paul.
Dillon Danis announced recently that he has teamed up with Duelbits ahead of a scheduled meeting with Paul, but there is increasing doubt over whether the bout will actually take place.
Danis posted on X – the social network that was formerly known as Twitter – that new customers who join Duelbits via his link will be able to get up to $100 free when they create an account.
“I’m happy to announce that I’ve officially partnered with Duelbits for my fight against Logan!” said the 30-year-old. “Duelbits is the most rewarding crypto casino and sportsbook on the market! Almost as rewarding as when I break Logan’s face in half in October.”
Danis has proven to be one of the most controversial figures in fight sports, having been banned for several months as a result of his part in a scuffle with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
The multiple-time jiu jitsu world champion is set to have his first ever boxing match against Paul, who is favourite to win the fight in the eyes of the bookmakers, in Manchester on October 14.
Paul has threatened legal action against the MMA star, who hinted in a series of posts on X that he would be pulling out of the scheduled bout on the Misfits Boxing ‘Prime Card’ as a result.
American fighter Danis posted on his X account: “Logan bragging about lawsuits again he isn’t built for the fight game, this pussy doesn’t deserve me I’m out.”
But the fight star has since confirmed that he will be taking on Paul in the ring and has also called for a future UFC bout against Logan’s brother Jake to be set up in the future.
The fight between Danis and Paul is one of the main attractions on the undercard at the AO Arena, with the bill being topped by the long-awaited meeting of KSI and Tommy Fury. Danis was set to take on the British YouTuber KSI at MF & DAZN: X Series 004 but he pulled out.
Danis taking on Paul will be his first action since an MMA fight with Bellator all the way back in 2019. Paul, meanwhile, has converted YouTube success into a fighting career having enjoyed bouts such as an exhibition boxing match against the unbeaten superstar Floyd Mayweather.
