Logan Paul calls out his next opponent in explosive interview after Dillon Danis' disqualification

Logan Paul called out his next opponent after beating Dillon Danis by disqualification at the AO Arena in Manchester.

After being dominated throughout the fight, Danis attempted a guillotine choke on Paul as the fight drew to a close in the sixth round, with a host of security having to step in.

Paul then finished the bout with a dramatic speech, admitting his passion belongs in the WWE as he aims to take the United States Championship - which is held by WWE legend Rey Mysterio.

He did, however, admit he would return to honour the bet he made with Danis regarding an MMA bout if the 30-year-old put up the agreed purse.



''He was supposed to be good at jiu-jitsu, what happened bro? [He] scuffed the take down, tried that,'' he began as he spoke to combat sports special Ariel Helwani after the fight.

''Tried the guillotine. Im sorry I missed the hammer fist. I'm sorry it ended like this but that just shows Dillon Danis is a coward. He is just a dirty, dirty human being, but thank you for coming out tonight, Manchester.

''It's so beautiful being here and I wanna give a big shout out to my team, my family, everyone who helped me. This camp was so hard and dealing with a guy like that was not easy. He was a true coward.


''I'm gonna be honest, this is a hobby. As you all know, I am a WWE Superstar, so I am going to be back in the WWE. ''There are some championships I want and I have my eye on something and my eye on someone. I am an American boy, [and I want the] US title. Rey Mysterio, I already beat you once and I want that championship. Let's go.''

Mysterio currently holds the United States Championship, having beaten Austin Theory for the title on an episode of SmackDown last month.

And the wrestling icon was quick to tease a future match between the pair, writing on X (Twitter): "Did Logan Paul just call me out? I'm not hard to find homie. Every Friday Night on SmackDown."
