Mixed Martial Arts star Dillon Danis has aimed a dig at YouTuber and boxer KSI during a press conference. Have a look for yourselves - is there a fight between the two on the horizon?
The MMA fighter came onto the stage and – whilst people tried to keep him back – he seemed to aim a short slap at the popular YouTube star, real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, before the pair had to be separated.
Danis and KSI have been rattling sabres for a while now, with KSI running a poll to choose his next opponent in the boxing ring.
However, the American fighter – a big pal of former UFC double-champ Conor McGregor – has been struggling in recent times with a slew of injuries.
In the end, the vote that KSI ran on social media put Danis top of the list for potential opponents, earning more than 250,000 votes, beating another former UFC star Tyron Woodley into second place.
Still, the pair have been arguing for a while, although this is the first time things have become physical.
Danis is a jiu-jitsu black belt as well as having a career in the octagon, but hasn’t had a professional boxing match.
KSI on the other hand has battled largely against fellow YouTubers – although he did recently win two fights in the same night, once of which was against an actual boxer.
The fight that caused this spark at the press conference was another YouTuber Deen the Great vs Walid Sharks.
Honestly, are there any YouTubers who aren’t fixing to box the lugs off someone else these days?
It takes place tomorrow night in London, with Deen looking to get a second win in the MF & DAZN: X Series event.
Walid is hoping that he can get back on track after drawing with Adam Saleh in his first fight.
Either way, it promises to be overshadowed by the potential of KSI vs Dillon Danis at this rate.
