Dillon Danis’ preparation for his blockbuster showdown with Logan Paul took a bizarre turn on Thursday.
As the MMA specialist prepared for an open workout ahead of Sunday’s boxing match with the social media star, he was met with a bizarre request.

OnlyFans model and boxer Elle Brooke was in attendance and propositioned Danis with the unusual request to be put in a rear-naked choke.
“I have a question for you … can you choke me out,” Brooke asks the former training partner of Conor McGregor.
Danis doesn’t hesitate in agreeing before clarifying he wants her to be fully unconscious. After she states yes the MMA fighter gets behind her and wraps his right arm under the neck of the adult content creator before placing his left arm behind her head.
In a split second the adult entertainer’s eyes roll back in her head as her entire body goes limp.
Danis and another man catch Brooke before she hits the deck as she comes too moments later before announcing: “Oh my god! That’s so much better than drugs.”
Danis and Paul are set to square off after months of ugly back and forth with Danis repeatedly targeting Paul’s fiancee Nina Agdal in a social media smear campaign.
While the pair are listed as the co-main event, they’ve stolen the limelight over the card as their ugly war of words unfolds.
The fight night is being headlined by YouTuber turned boxer KSI who takes on professional boxer Tommy Fury.
Fury is coming off a split decision victory against Jake Paul in February and is looking to add to and pad out his record.
What time does it start in Australia?
The main card officially gets underway on Sunday October 15 from 5am (AEDT) with the main event expected to get underway at around 8am.
How can I stream the fight?
The only place to watch and stream the fight is through DAZN with the pay-per-view setting boxing fans back $32.99.
Where is the fight taking place?
The fights are set to take place inside Manchester Arena in London, England. The venue has a capacity for 21,000 fans.
