With all the drama that’s been going on with Dillon Danis and Logan Paul’s fiancee Nina Agdal, Covington believes that Conor McGregor’s friend may have someone involved to help him with the social media posts. He thinks that the Bellator fighter has a ghostwriter. Covington said, “He’s got a good beat rider for sure. He’s got a good guy who’s behind the screen ghostwriting for him.”

Dillon Danis and Logan Paul’s boxing match will have a YouTuber pitted against an MMA fighter. Hence, Colby Covington believes that it is not that big of a fight. As such, the drama that Danis has been able to create to make people care about the boxing match is the only thing ‘Chaos’ is impressed with. “He’s definitely been able to manufacture some drama with that fight, making it a bigger fight than it really is,” said the former UFC Interim Champion.

‘Chaos’ claims Danis is not a real fighter

Colby Covington is often known for his outspoken and controversial opinions. He laid bare his thoughts about Dillon Danis’ status as a fighter, which the UFC star claims he isn’t. Covington stated that Conor McGregor’s teammate has no idea about punching, even though he’s gearing up for a boxing match. He continued, “D*ldo Danis is not a fighter. That guy can’t throw a punch. He literally cannot fight his way out of a wet paper bag.”

Dillon Danis has been training and sparring with Conor McGregor for years now. However, that still does not make Colby Covington believe that Danis can actually beat Logan Paul. “The guy shouldn’t be there. He’s just there to get his a** whooped by Logan and I think Logan starches him,” ‘Chaos’ added.

Nevertheless, Conor McGregor remains confident that the BJJ specialist will emerge victorious by risking $250,000. We will have to wait and see how things pan out with less than two weeks remaining for the fight.
