Logan Paul thinks Conor McGregor is an ‘average’ MMA fighter and a ‘horrible’ boxer

Paul is set to face off with the Irish boxer’s close pal, Danis Dillion, on October 14.
However, things outside the ring continue to heat up, with the YouTuber-turned-boxer and WWE Superstar's recent comments.
In an interview with Misfits Boxing, Paul said: “Conor McGregor’s an average MMA fighter and a horrible boxer. I’m going to beat the s**t out of his b**ch Dillon, and then I’m going to beat the s**t out of him.
“But he ghosted me, bro. He won’t even bet $1 million on his fighter. That’s chump change for a guy like Conor. He won’t even bet $1 million on Dillon.
"He had nothing to say when I called him out on Twitter. Do you think he’s going to step in there himself? I don’t know, it feels unlikely.”
It comes after a series of online attacks from Dillion, whereby the American mixed martial artist took swipes at Paul and his fiancée, Danish model Nina Agdal.
Dillion posted a series of pictures of Agdal with her past partners and pretty much every man she’s ever been photographed with - a clear attempt to get under Paul’s skin.
In a recent tweet, Dillion even went a step further and called the model a ‘s**t’.
“Told Logan to his face he’s marrying a s**t and he didn’t do s**t about it had his whole team and me in there alone, shows you the kind of man he is,” he wrote.
It even led OnlyFans star Corinna Kopf to call out Dillion for his misogynistic and sexist behaviour.
She wrote: "I can’t be the only one who thinks Dillon Danis is corny as f**k for harassing the f**k out of a woman for absolutely no reason. Talk s**t to the person you’re fighting, not his fiancé[e].
"Also someone tell him to stop sending and unsending messages to me and my friends, you look so desperate my guy."
But Paul seems mostly unfazed by his antics, explaining he knew he was a ‘scumbag’ before signing on to fight him.
He told Misfits Boxing: “It’s not affected me, no, because when I entered this fight, I knew Dillon was a scumbag. I didn’t think he’d take it as far as he did, but you know, actions have consequences. I think he’s going to get what’s coming to him.
“I think the people online are speaking for me. Me and my girl don’t have to defend ourselves or try to prove our love for the world. … He’s a good Twitter troll. But again, he’s going to pay for it.”
