Not yet even officially starting, the heat is already on between Dillon Danis and influencer Logan Paul.
During Thursday’s press conference, a bloody brawl happened between the two fighters. They are bound to participate in a six-round cruiserweight clash this October 14th.
At the pre-fight press conference, Danis and Paul traded insults before the latter threw a bottle at his opponent. Danis then responded by lobbing a microphone at Paul’s face, causing a cut.
The Internet sensation was seen bleeding from his cheek as the security escorted him off stage.
Paul then uploaded a selfie to his Instagram Story, with his right cheek still swollen and the cut still visible.
Paul and Danis then set it off to the weigh-in. Both fighters made it to the 195-pound limit, but with Danis hitting the maximum weight. Paul weighed less at 194.3 pounds.
However, the mixed martial artist still accused the Internet star that he missed weight.
“He missed the weight, plain and simple. They’re trying to handicap me as much as possible,” he tweeted.
Paul simply responded to all Danis’ accusations, tweeting, “He’s so scared of me.”
