Following the Triller main event, ‘El Jefe’ took to Twitter and called out ‘The Problem Child’. He said, “It’s on 100% send me the contract let’s do this I’m gonna put this c**t out cold.”

The Askren vs Paul fight had an incredible build-up, as both men used their social media reach to an optimum level. Hence, it was one of the most anticipated bouts of the year, but it couldn’t live up to its hype as ‘The Problem Child’ make quick work of ‘Funky’ Ben and ended the contest within two minutes. This was the biggest victory for the YouTuber Paul, as he defeated a legitimate mixed martial artist.

Askren though requested to continue following the knockdown, but the referee adjudged him unfit to continue further. Hence, he lost his third fight (UFC & boxing) in a row. ‘Funky’s defeat opened the door for Paul to challenge a whole new set of opponents.

Dillon Danis vs Jake Paul- Is there a possibility?

It’s not the first time that Danis has thrown punches at Paul. Earlier, after defeating NBA star Nate Robinson in a boxing match, Paul had called out Conor McGregor. He also added that he wanted to knock out everyone from McGregor’s corner, including ‘El Jefe’.

The Bellator MMA fighter and Paul have long been trading blows over social media, but it took a whole new turn when the famous YouTuber attacked ‘El Jefe’ with water balloons. The former even had some derogatory words for his rival.

‘El Jefe’ is currently recuperating following an injury and has been an absentee for Bellator MMA since 2019, where he last defeated Max Humphrey via armbar submission. He has only competed in two matches, including his debut fight win against Kyle Walker at Bellator 198.

Paul is still honing his trade in boxing, but his latest victory has convinced some that he can box, and is here to stay. Hence, one cannot rule out a crossover fight with Danis in near future. What’s your take on Danis vs Paul?
