Logan Paul was cut and left bleeding by Dillon Danis throwing a microphone at him, new footage has confirmed.
The YouTuber’s fight with the MMA fighter had a very harsh side, with Danis making a series of insults to Paul’s fiancée, Nina Agdal, many of them simulating sexual photos.
And it was no surprise when a massive brawl quickly ensued during the pre-fight press conference on Thursday.
When Paul and Danis finished exchanging insults, they approached each other and things turned violent when the social media star threw a bottle.
Danis retaliated by swinging at Paul and hitting him in the face with a microphone.
Paul was quickly removed from the fray by a security guard, despite Danis suggesting he had been cut and bleeding.
Close-up footage of the incident confirmed this was the case.
Posting a photo with blood on the floor of the Manchester Auditorium, Danis said on X: “Play with fire, burn your pussy.”
Fans feared Paul’s injury would put the fight in jeopardy, but the 28-year-old quickly moved to allay those fears.
He said on X: “This Saturday we catch a predator.”
Paul later said: “Dillon can’t escape me. The fight is on, the stakes have gotten higher.”
