As far as first dates go, I expected Bellator MMA President, Scott Coker, to do a little better than the upcoming Logan Paul vs. KSI celebrity boxing rematch. Then I heard he was taking welterweight loudmouth, Dillon Danis, and it all started to make sense.

I guess Sage “Northbutt” was busy that night.

“I will be ringside. If I’m in L.A. and I’m free, I’m going to go,” Coker told MMA Junkie. “It will be a lot of fun. Is it the greatest fight of all time? C’mon. I think we know the answer to that. But, it will be entertaining, and it’s going to be on DAZN, we’re going to support our TV partners, and it will be at Staples Center not too far from here. So, we’re going to grab Dillon, and we’re going to go down there and check it out.”

The rematch is booked for Nov. 9 in Los Angeles.

The first time the two YouTube personalities threw down, it ended in a six-round draw. Not that we needed a round seven, but the event sold out the 21,000-seat Manchester Arena and scored over one million pay-per-view (PPV) buys, so there is definitely more money to be made.

And it sure beats getting murdered inside the Octagon.
