JAKE PAUL has claimed that Dillon Danis is ‘butt-hurt’ because he hooked up with the Bellator star’s girlfriend, Savannah Montano.
YouTube sensation Paul is searching for his next opponent, having moved to 2-0 after knocking out ex-NBA player Nate Robinson in November.
UFC superstar Amanda Nunes has revealed that she’d be willing to crossover to boxing to fight Paul.
Yet the internet star shot down that idea and claimed he’s set his sights on facing Conor McGregor’s team-mate Danis.
When asked about fighting two-weight champion Nunes, Paul told TMZ Sports: “Nah, I wouldn’t fight her.
“Waste of time. No one knows who she is.
“There’s not a lot of hype there. Plus, there’s no history.
“I wanna knock out Dilon because we’ve been talkin’ s**t back and forth for 2 years, I’ve hooked up with his girlfriend, he’s all butt-hurt about it, there’s history there.”
Paul later revealed that fighting Danis Danis is his fastest ticket to a future “dream fight” with Conor McGregor.
The 23-year-old – who recently ambushed Danis, 27, and pelted him with water balloons – leaked a $500,000 offer to fight the MMA ace in March.
And Paul escalated their feud by FaceTiming the Bellator star’s girlfriend, Savannah Montano last week.
Instagram model Montano was left furious by the stunt and subsequently launched a scathing attack on him after footage of the call was made public.
She said: “I’m dead confused at some of you guys going, ‘Oh, but why did you answer his call?’
“As if I have his f**king number saved in my phone! It was literally a random number. You can literally see in the video, I’m like, ‘Who is this?’
“And as soon as I see his face I’m, like, ‘Eww, what the f? Like, stop, stop, stop, I’m literally f’ing nauseous, like, I’m gonna go throw up right now, like, ugh.’”
