UFC color commentator Joe Rogan believes Jake Paul would get mangled by Dillon Danis in a street fight.
Paul and Danis have been involved in a beef for some time now. The YouTube star recently found Danis during a filming session for Brendan Schaub’s Food Truck Diaries. Paul was in the back of a truck with his friends and he filmed himself throwing junk at Danis. As the truck drove off, Paul yelled out expletives towards Danis.
During an edition of his podcast, Rogan questioned why Paul didn’t get out of the truck to confront Danis. It didn’t take long before he answered his own question (h/t BJPenn.com).

“Let me tell you something, Dillon Danis gets ahold of you, you’re either getting your arms broken, you’re neck strangled off—your head’s going to get popped like a zit—[or] he’s going to rip your knees apart. There’s not a f**king chance in the world [Paul would beat Danis in a street fight]. Dillon Danis is a world class grappler. Top of the food chain.”
Paul has been calling out many MMA fighters but for boxing matches. That includes Danis’ teammate and top MMA superstar, Conor McGregor. Paul went as far as to insult McGregor’s fiancee, Dee Devlin.
Danis is 2-0 as a pro MMA fighter. He competes under the Bellator banner. Bellator President Scott Coker has expressed interest in getting involved with potentially booking Paul vs. Danis. The Bellator boss has made it clear, however, that he hopes some of these celebrities can cross over to MMA rather than always ask for boxing matches.
