It is common knowledge that Dillon Danis is not dating anyone and is currently single. Additionally, he has never been married before.

However, fellow MMA fighter and YouTuber Logan Paul recently accused him of leaving his wife with his daughter alone during a pre-fight press conference on October 12. 

Appearing together on the same stage with Dillon, Logan asked, “You obviously have no respect for women. Is that why you are not acknowledging your daughter?”

He further added, “Why don’t you acknowledge Josephine and her mom?” Your daughter Josephine, stupid.”
