Dillon Danis claims Logan Paul was ‘smart’ to ‘cover his head in Vaseline’ during their boxing fight… as MMA star admits he was ‘trying to go for his neck’ in co-main event
- Dillon Danis lost to Logan Paul by disqualification in Manchester last Saturday
- He landed only nine punches and resorted to MMA style takedown attempts
- Re-live the action as Paul defeats Danis before a mass brawl breaks out
Dillon Danis extended a rare compliment to Logan Paul by commending his ‘smart’ use of Vaseline in his choatic defeat to the WWE star last weekend.
The MMA fighter suffered a loss by disqualification in Manchester, only for a mass brawl to break out after the fight was called in the YouTuber’s favour.
Throughout the bout, Danis fell well short of his billing – and pre-match taunting – and landed with just nine punches in the course of the whole contest.
But Danis, who – in one of the contest’s most farcical moments – threw himself at Paul’s legs having already attempted a jiu-jitsu move by going for his opponent’s neck, insisted he was happy with his performance.
And he put forward a curious reason why his unorthodox late-round manoeuvre proved unsuccessful.

‘I wasn’t actually trying to but he was smart and he Vaselined his head up.’ He said on Piers Morgan Uncensored. ‘So I guess he knew I was going for his neck but at that moment I actually wasn’t.
‘I was grabbing his head and he just kind of shrugged me and with the Vaseline and then he threw that punch and I up-kicked him.’
Danis, who is embroiled in a legal battle with Paul’s fiancee Nina Agdal, also addressed the incident where he dived at the legs of the social media star, adding: ‘Oh yes that one time, yeah, I was just messing around a little bit, letting him know what a real fight is.
‘Boxing is not a real fight, it’s a half a fight. I want to fight him in a real fight, [he] shook my hand and said he was going to fight me in MMA… he shook my hand, if he’s a real man, he should. He didn’t defend his fiancée in my opinion. If a man talks about his fiancée the way I did about his fiancée, he should have knocked me out.’
