Dillon Danis receives 'sick taunts' after posting picture of his mum following Logan Paul disqualification

Dillon Danis has received sick taunts about his mum after the MMA fighter uploaded a photo to celebrate her birthday.

After months of back and forth, Danis finally stepped in the ring to settle his differences with Youtuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul earlier this month, but suffered defeat by disqualification.

The build-up to the highly anticipated fight had been overshadowed by shocking personal attacks made by Danis to Paul's fiancee Nina Agdal.

The 30-year-old relentlessly attacked the model on social media, tweeting over 250 times about her sex life.


His comments led to an explosive pre-fight press conference in which Danis threw a microphone at Paul's head, drawing blood from his opponent.


Meanwhile, Agdal has filed an official lawsuit against the American, as well as a restraining order against him.

In the suit, Agdal says that Danis wrote 'despicable' things about her and that she has suffered 'humiliation, emotional distress and reputational harm' as a result.


Now, however, it is Danis who has been victim to sick taunts online about his mother, after sharing a picture of her on his Instagram, accompanied by the caption: "My life. Happy birthday to my idol love you to the moon and back in this life and the next."

The MMA fighter has received abusive messages in response the post, both mocking his mum's appearance and referencing his previous comments about Agdal.

"Is that your great great granny?" one Instagram user commented.


"How tf can you talk about Nina when your mom looks like this?' wrote another, with a third claiming "Nina is better'.

A fourth added: "Mom needs to lay off the plastic surgery".

Many will believe that Danis had it coming after his unsavoury attacks on Agdal, but Paul admitted he had forgiven him ahead of their fight.

"I reached a little bit of a zen moment last night because he has made it so personal," Paul told DAZN. "How do you not go in there wanting to murder this human being?"


"'The answer is I forgive him. I forgive Dillon. I'm just going to go in there and do my job, stay focused and do what I have to do tonight."
