Conor McGregor Stablemate Dillon Danis Banned From KSI Vs Logan Paul II
MMA star Dillon Danis has seemingly been banned from being at the KSI vs Logan Paul fight this week by Eddie Hearn, after being considered to 'high risk.'
YouTubers KSI and Paul face for the second time on Saturday, this time for 12 rounds under professional rules, in a fight that has certainly had a mixed reception.
One man that won't be at the fight is Conor McGregor's teammate Danis. The 26-year-old became infamous as the man who Khabib Nurmagomedov attacked after his win over McGregor after jumping into the crowd.
Danis had taken to Twitter to claim he'd be at the fight.
i will be ringside at the Logan Paul vs KSI fight on saturday night, @jakepaul act accordingly.

But there were then reports that the American was considered too 'high risk' by promoter Eddie Hearn and that the MMA fighter had been suspended from ringside at the Staples Centre.

And Danis confirmed the news when he returned to social media, posting a picture of a message he sent to Hearn asking why he wasn't being let into the fight.

El Jefe had been feuding with Paul's brother on social media in the build up to the fight and had called for a fight with the amateur boxer, whose only fight was a win over KSI's brother on the undercard of the first fight between the two internet stars.
Bellator boss Scott Croker was expected to attend with Danis but he has also been banned from the fight on Saturday.
Who will win between KSI and Logan Paul?
