- Dillon Danis lost to Logan Paul by disqualification in Manchester last Saturday
- He claimed taunting Paul’s fiancee Nina Agdal was part of promoting the fight
- Re-live the action as Paul defeats Danis before a mass brawl breaks out
Dillon Danis has wasted little time in calling for a reunion with Logan Paul – but this time inside the octagon.
Throughout the fight, Danis appeared to fall short of his billing and landed with just nine punches in the course of the whole bout.
Yet Danis – who is embroiled in a legal battle with Paul’s fiancee Nina Agdal – seemed confident of his chances in taking on his rival in an MMA clash, claiming that he ‘didn’t take any damage’ in Manchester.
‘I am ready to do it, I can do it tonight,’ he told Morgan on Tuesday evening.

Danis appeared on Piers Morgan Uncensored on Tuesday night in which he discussed the fight
Danis threw himself at Paul’s feet late in the fight but admitted on the programme that he was ‘just messing around a little’
‘I didn’t take any damage, so I want to take a fight in the next thirty days. I’m ready to go!’
He had been sporting a pair of black eyes after coming in for some head shots against Paul on Saturday, but appeared unfazed, going as far as to suggest that boxing was less physically taxing than MMA
‘I feel great. MMA is a lot harder than boxing, definitely on the body,’ he asserted.
‘[The black eyes] not too bad… he looked worse, I wanted to fight, he was running the whole time.
‘The fight, it didn’t feel like a fight, it felt like he was running away, every time I tried to engage with him and get in there and trade, he tried to get away… he was running, he was on the back foot the whole time. I wanted to fight.’
The fight was noteworthy for its descent into something of a farce after Danis threw himself at Paul’s legs at the end of the sixth round, having already attempted a jiu-jitsu move on his opponent by going for his neck.
‘I wasn’t actually trying to but he was smart and he Vaselined his head up. So I guess he knew I was going for his neck but at that moment I actually wasn’t.
‘I was grabbing his head and he just kind of shrugged me and with the Vaseline and then he threw that punch and I up-kicked him.’
When asked about diving for Paul’s legs, he added: ‘Oh yes that one time, yeah, I was just messing around a little bit, letting him know what a real fight is. Boxing is not a real fight, it’s a half a fight.
Danis posted a shocking video of Agdal explicitly talking about her need for sex
Agdal alleged Danis targeted her with posts over 250 times since the bout was announced
‘I want to fight him in a real fight, [he] shook my hand and said he was going to fight me in MMA… he shook my hand, if he’s a real man, he should. He didn’t defend his fiancée in my opinion. If a man talks about his fiancée the way I did about his fiancée, he should have knocked me out.’
Danis has seen Agdal, file a $150,000 (£122,000) lawsuit as well as take out a restraining order against the MMA fighter.
Danis dramatically soured relations with his opponent back in August when he ramped up the personal attacks to a disgusting level as he attempted to get inside Paul’s head with a video of Agdal discussing her sexual cravings online.
Danis appeared far from apologetic or remorseful, adding that it was all part of the promotion fight, before also adding that he had no intention of giving Paul his cut of the purse, despite having agreed to do just that beforehand.
