Trash-talking is an essential part of combat sports, and more often than not, fighters end up crossing the line. Numerous times, fans have seen fighters take things too far in their rivalry and say demeaning things about each other’s family. The most famous example of this phenomenon is the rivalry between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.

Danis will face Paul in a boxing ring on October 14th. Ever since their fight announcement, the two fighters have engaged in heated exchanges. Further, Danis took a controversial step by tweeting about Logan Paul’s fiancee, Nina Agdal. This escalated during Danis’ appearance on the Full Send MMA podcast, where he drew parallels with the notorious McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov feud.

Danis asserted that such personal attacks are par for the course in the brutal world of MMA and boxing. “He’s signing up for this. This isn’t a f*cking NBA game bro,” he said. Further, he asserted that they’re fighting to inflict harm on each other, making trash talk an integral part of it.

“This is me and him going to like murder each other. He’s talking about stopping my head in front of my family so I can’t go at his wife,” he added. Moving further, the MMA fighter also recalled the time KSI did similar things to him. “KSI went on my mom and like all this sh*t. F*ck them bro, they’re just not real fighters,” he said.

What Conor McGregor predicted for Danis vs Paul

In his recent public appearance, Conor McGregor predicted the fate of this anticipated boxing fight. Considering his years-old friendship with Danis, it is unsurprising that the Irishman is backing ‘El Jefe’. “Dillon will win, for sure! They are already backtracking right now. They woke an animal,” he said.
