It looks like Dillon Danis’ date with Bellator MMA president Scott Coker will have to wait.
Danis, who is one of Conor McGregor’s main training partners and a current welterweight fighter on Bellator’s roster, has been banned from attending the highly-anticipated boxing rematch between YouTube sensations KSI and Logan Paul tomorrow night (Sat., Nov. 9, 2019) live on DAZN from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., according to Las Vegas sports reporter Helen Yee.
Sources tell me Dillon Danis was supposed to be at the KSI vs Logan Paul fight but is being banned from the arena labeled as a “high risk”. @dillondanis

Danis, who is 2-0 inside of the Bellator cage, was hoping to attend the massive boxing event this weekend and get a closer look at Logan Paul’s brother, Jake. The two men have sparked quite the rivalry over the past few months and have professed their willingness to fight inside of the boxing ring. Paul even took the bad blood to another level by revealing that he hooked up with Danis’ girlfriend.
While Danis would have been attending the event alongside Coker officials still deemed the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace a “high risk” and have banned him from the arena. Outside of his feud with Jake Paul, Danis is likely being excluded from the event due to his involvement in UFC 229’s post-fight brawl last year in Las Vegas (see it HERE), which saw UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov climb the Octagon to get his hands on Danis.
As you may have imagined, Danis did not agree with the ban from KSI vs. Logan Paul 2.
i made this logan paul fight relevant, how are you gonna ban me from entering the arena @EddieHearn ?

It would have been interesting to see Danis sitting ringside and trying to mix it up with Jake Paul, who has zero fighting experience, but we’ll have to wait to see that encounter another day.
