Brendan Schaub’s film crew Food Truck Diaries got bonus footage for Dillon Danis’ appearance on the Showtime web series. Whether that is the plan or not is up to viewers.
Two days after YouTube star Jake Paul tossed water balloons at Danis in a drive-by, escalating an apparent feud with Conor McGregor in a separate video that went instantly viral, MMA fans have been letting it down. another angle of the incident.
In a moment that seemed woefully close to a setup, former UFC heavyweight turned podcaster / comedian Schaub interviews Danis for the food-focused series when Paul rolls around and gets into trouble.
Watch the video below.
The building where Food Truck Diaries is filmed is occupied by Media Malka, a production company that works with Showtime on a variety of content.
After Paul leaves, Danis casually returns to Schaub, and the two recount what just happened.
“I don’t think he would box me either,” Danis said.
“But the point is, it’s going to get them millions of views, and when you fight it translates into dollars for you,” Schaub replied.
“I wish it had come out,” Danis said.
Danis quickly hit back at Paul on Twitter. The YouTube star began the feud with a McGregor and Danis legend after his viral Nate Robinson in Tyson knockout against Jones Jr. last month. His older brother, Logan Paul, then signed to box Floyd Mayweather.
