MMA fighter Dillon Danis has fuelled rumors he could be fighting Logan Paul by offering him $1 million if he can beat him in a wrestling match on Twitter.

Logan Paul and his brother Jake Paul are a huge part of the YouTube boxing phenomenon that continues to grow, with stars such as KSI and AnEsonGib stepping into the ring to challenge their fellow creators.

In recent months the Paul brothers have even begun pulling in celebrities from other walks of fame including members of the Hype House who staged a match inside Jake Paul’s own boxing ring.

More recently Jake Paul confirmed his next match would be against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, although the match has been postponed until November.

On Monday night Logan Paul tweeted that he’d give $10,000 to any influencer that could beat him in a wrestling match. Danis retweeted him and said $1 million “if you can beat me.”

Just last week Danis, hinted in an interview with ESPN MMA that he would be fighting one of the Paul brothers. He said: “About Logan Paul. They have reached out, so like it will happen. One of them will happen – 100%.”

Dillon Danis is an MMA fighter and training partner of Conor McGregor. The 26-year-old has feuded with the Paul brothers before and has even bet $1 million on a fight in the past via a comment on Instagram

Danis wasn’t the only fighter to lay down their gauntlet. MMA fighter and retired UFC star Ben Askren, responded: “I’ll pin you in less than a minute, bad hip and all.”

Logan hit back with the word “chill” and a screenshot of a google result showing the result of Askren’s encounter with middleweight contender Jorge Masivdal, when he was knocked out within 5 seconds by a flying knee in 2019. Askren quickly snapped back “Sh** happens, you think you can last 1 minute or no?”

Several high-profile creators also responded to Logan’s tweet including makeup artist James Charles who replied “Pay up.” Youtuber Corinna Kopf also replied: “Okay I’ll give it a go”.

Bradley Martyn, a bodybuilder and fitness influencer, responded with “?”, to which Logan responded “a worthy opponent.”

Zach Clayton, a musician and creator with 6 million followers on TikTok responded “I’ll milly rock ur sh*t.” Logan hit back, “Who the f**k are you?”

Whether a fight with Dillon Danis goes ahead or not, it looks as though Logan Paul has more than enough influencers to choose from.


Jinny banned from Twitch again for reckless driving

Twitch star Jinny has revealed that the streaming platform will be banning her after she drove quite recklessly on a scooter while visiting Germany.

The popular IRL streamer explained to her viewers that her impromptu decision to ride a scooter without very much experience was a bad idea.

“I got banned. Not yet, but I will get banned because of scooter,” she said. “Because I don’t have a driver’s license, I’ve never tried scooter that much. So, I made a lot of mistakes.”

As Jinny further noted, even though she tried to be careful, mistakes were bound to happen. “So, I’m just not going to ride scooter to avoid any mistakes being made.”

In a since-deleted clip, Jinny can be seen riding a scooter while wobbling and appearing to have significant trouble steering.

At one point, the streamer even ran a red light and nearly bumped into other people trying to ride their vehicles.

“It was green! Damn it!” she cursed after crossing the road. “Wasn’t it green?”

How long will Jinny be banned for?

According to the Korean streamer, this ban will last for seven days, because this isn’t the first time Twitch has had to discipline her.

As Dexerto previously reported, Jinny was first banned back in July after playing The Last of Us Part 2 on stream.

During the broadcast, she erroneously referred to the female character, Abby, as a “transgender” which resulted in the platform banning her for a “hateful comment.”

However, Jinny was unbanned a mere eight hours later after making a public apology.

The ban timing is extremely unfortunate as Jinny is in the middle of a trip, so being unable to stream takes some fun out of the experience.

For her part, however, Jinny is taking the ban seriously and accepts that it was her fault. As for when she will be banned, she claimed that it will happen when it’s “morning in NA,” so the ban should be kicking in at some point on October 20.
