- Dillon Danis exposed the extent of Logan Paul’s facial injury on social media
- The MMA fighter struck his opponent with a microphone at a press conference
- Paul suffered a deep cut to his face and a black eye after the incident
The extent of Logan Paul‘s face wound has been revealed ahead of his showdown boxing match against Dillon Danis on Saturday evening.
Paul is one of the headliners at the Manchester Arena for the crossover boxing event that sees him take on long-term rival Danis in a bad-blooded battle.
Violence spilled over earlier in the week when Danis struck Paul in the face with a microphone as the pair faced off and prompted fears that the bout could be called off.
The YouTuber and wrestling star sought to hide the cut when he turned up to Friday’s weigh-in wearing a balaclava, but has now been seen without a covering ahead of entering the ring.
Posting on X – formerly Twitter – Danis revealed an image showing the severity of Paul’s injury with a deep gash visible next to his right-eye.

Paul suffered a deep gash near his right eye with his eye socket also showing bruising
The 1-2 cm gash appears to have started healing but there will be concern that it could be opened up by Danis if he is able to land a few blows on the wound early on in their contest.
Paul is also suffering a black eye with his eye socket showing significant bruising and the flesh underneath the eyeball also damaged.
Danis further goaded his opponent by captioning the image with a Tweet boasting: ‘I already won broke this fools face he’s a dead man walking.’
The social media post is another attempt to unnerve Paul with Danis repeatedly targeting his opponent’s fiancée Nina Agda in the fight build-up over the past two months.
His efforts led to the model filing an $150,000 (£122,000) lawsuit and taking out a temporary restraining order against the MMA fighter.
Paul previously discarded suggestions that he would pull out of the fight, instead explaining the microphone bust-up had made him more determined to beat Danis.
The initial strike by Danis caused Paul to spill blood from his forehead that pooled on the floor.
