- Logan Paul and Dillon Danis will go toe-to-toe at the AO Arena on Saturday night
- Paul weighed in at 194.4lbs for the bout, while Danis tipped the scales at 195lbs
- Danis was angry with Paul after he missed the deadline for their weigh-in earlier
Logan Paul has successfully made weight for his showdown with Dillon Danis after the MMA star raised concerns over whether the fight would go ahead as planned.
However, Danis was forced to wait at the side of the stage for over 10 minutes before the star of the public weigh-in as Logan failed to arrive on time.
Danis was furious with Paul and said the WWE star was taking liberties before tipping the scales at 195lbs ahead of his highly anticipated bout this weekend.
Paul – who is looking to defend his fiancée’s honour – arrived at the press event wearing a balaclava to cover up his cut from Thursday’s press conference.
Paul weighed in at 194.4lbs and showed off his lean physique before facing off with Danis in the Misfits cage.

The pair completed their final face off inside the Misfits cage on Friday afternoon

Fans will be delighted to see both boxers on stage and fit to fight after the chaos that unfolded during Thursday’s press conference.
Tensions boiled over on stage with Danis striking Paul on the head with his microphone before throwing bottles of Prime into the audience.
Paul’s face was cut from the incident but he appeared to be fine during the weigh-in on Friday afternoon.
However, Danis did cause some concern after taking to social media to say his bout with Paul was ‘off’ after the WWE star ‘missed weight’.
Danis launched a series of posts on social media insisting Paul had breached regulations over their bout before tweeting that he will face Jake instead.
Replying to some earlier trash talk from the WWE star, Danis took to social media to say: ‘The fight is off you missed weight.’
Paul replied with a video of him on the scales coming in at 194.3lbs which caught the ire of his opponent who said: ‘He claims he made weight, but it doesn’t count. The rules are the rules.
‘If he wants to be viewed as a genuine boxer, he needs to follow the 11 o’clock deadline. Look at the time he posted. It’s not fair; I had to follow the rules, and he isn’t an exception.’
He continued in another post: ‘The commission’s rules state that weigh-ins are between 10 and 11. If you miss the 11 o’clock deadline, you’ve missed weight. I weighed in at 10:15, but Logan still hasn’t.
‘The commission said that if he doesn’t arrive by the 11am deadline, the fight is off. He missed the weight, but then called misfits and changed the rules to give himself an extra hour.
‘We should be on an even playing field, he shouldn’t get special treatment. He’s already got more juice than Tropicana. He missed the weight, plain and simple. They’re trying to handicap me as much as possible.’
Danis didn’t stop there. He went on to add: ‘This isn’t complaining. What is fair is fair. No drug tests, breaking the weigh-in rules – I ain’t nobody’s b****. I run the show. F***Logan Paul.
‘This fake commission is paid for by KSI and Misfits. They do whatever they say to get paid. This whole thing is a bunch of bulls***.’
