Conor McGregor ‘bets $200,000’ on training partner Dillon Danis to beat Logan Paul amid YouTuber’s offer of $2m wager

LOGAN PAUL claims Conor McGregor has bet $200,000 on Dillon Danis to beat him – but ignored his offer of a $2million wager.

McGregor’s training partner and friend Danis makes his boxing debut against the YouTube star on October 14 in Manchester.

Paul initially called out McGregor to bet $1m (£800,000) on the outcome but he then doubled the terms.

The American, 28, is yet to hear back but claimed the UFC legend, 35, has put a bet worth around £160,000 down at the bookies.

Paul said: “He’s not behind Dillon, bro.

“If he was behind Dillon he’d take my $1m bet, there’s a reason he completely ghosted me.

“Dillon mentioned that Conor put money on him in the face-to-face, he goes, ‘Conor put $200k on me.’

“And I’m like, ‘Then why wouldn’t he take my f***ing bet then. Conor knows, bro, he doesn’t believe in his fighter, his fighter doesn’t believe in himself, when I look at Dillon I see a broken individual.

“If he thinks he’s broken now? Wait until October 14, I’m going to break him entirely.”

McGregor is set to train with Danis, 30, ahead of the bout, which acts as co-headliner to KSI’s fight against Tommy Fury.

And Paul upped the ante with his wager during an episode of comedian Andrew Schulz’s podcast.

He said: “I asked Dillon about it in the face-to-face I was like, ‘Where’s Daddy Conor, your f***ing boy, if he’s so confident in you?’

“He goes, ‘Don’t worry about that, blah blah.’ He has no answer. Conor, you know what?

“I’ll tell you what Mr Moneybags, I’m going to make this more interesting for you, how about we double it?

“We make it $2m – $2m says I beat your boy Dillon Danis. I know you’re going to see this clip, you’re coaching him, guiding him, he’s definitely going to show up?

“F*** you, both of you are all bark, no bite. $2m says I beat your boy and I’ll send you the contract tomorrow.

“But I guarantee you he’s not going to respond. All bark, no bite, both of them.”
