Logan Paul in talks to fight in Bellator – Dillon Danis reacts: “Set it up…”
YouTube star Logan Paul recently met with Bellator CEO Scott Coker, and talks of a fight with controversial Dillon Danis has already begun.
We may very well see controversial YouTuber Logan Paul in the MMA cage soon. Last year he tried his hand at professional boxing, in a rematch with rival YouTuber KSI that ended in controversy. Now Paul has opened up regarding a career in MMA. He has previously professed a desire to compete in MMA, citing his high school wrestling background as a major asset.
Attending his brother Jake Paul’s boxing bout this weekend, Logan Paul told media on site that he was interested in competing in Bellator MMA. He directly addressed Bellator CEO Scott Coker.
“We love you, Scott,” Paul said. “Let’s set that meeting up, Scott.”
The first name that popped up in regards for an MMA fight was rival YouTuber JMX. Paul said he was interested in facing JMX, but that it’s a fight that wouldn’t come cheap.

“If the money is right, I’ll fight him,” Logan said. “I’m going to put it real bluntly for you, DAZN. I need a fat (explicit) check, like multi, multi millions. Or if there’s an opponent equally or better than JMX and his clout makes sense – and he can bring in just as many viewers as myself – I’ll be excited about that too.”
However, one who was quick to bite was Dillon Danis – Who has been feuding with the Paul brothers since 2019. In response to the news that Paul wants to compete in Bellator, Danis encouraged the Bellator boss to go ahead with negotiations.

Danis began feuding with Jake Paul on Twitter, with things getting ugly fast as they brought each others significant other into the feud. While it’s still not clear how the meeting between Coker and Paul went, the Bellator MMA business model certainly seems appropriate for the YouTube star.
