Why Logan Paul will beat Dillon Danis

1 – Logan Paul Is A More Serious Athlete

Logan has spent most the last couple of years wrestling in WWE and he’s in professional athlete shape – even during high school he was stand-out linebacker and wrestler. Although Danis excelled in Jiu-Jitsu and MMA between 2014 and 2019 he’s spent the last few years concentrating on trash talking via social media.

2 – Dillon Danis Is Distracted

When Danis isn’t trash talking he has found the time to start a family – whether he admits it or not having a newborn baby is a major distraction to training and a massive sleep disruptor.

3 – Logan Paul Has Boxed Floyd Mayweather

While Danis has never boxed a competitive round in his life, Paul has done eight 3-minutes with Floyd Mayweather. Paul might have lost every round in that contest but he would have learned a lot during those 24 minutes.

4 – Size Is A Factor

The fight on October 14 is set for a 200-pound weight limit. Logan is a big old unit who can probably just about squeeze down to that weight, but Danis is two inches shorter and when he competed in MMA it was at 175 pounds.

5 – MMA Grapplers Aren’t Boxers

As Jake Paul has demonstrated, MMA fighters aren’t boxers, and MMA fighters who specialise in grappling are generally pretty poor boxers. Jake has beaten four ex-UFC heavy hitters quite comfortably, and Dillon never got near that level as a martial artist.
