It appears as though there is still plenty of animosity between Dillon Danis and Logan Paul as the ex-Bellator fighter recently threw shade at the WWE superstar.

Danis added more fuel to the fire as he sparked discussion regarding the PRIME curse, which has emerged amongst the MMA community. The Jiu Jitsu practitioner took to his X (formerly Twitter) account and took a jibe at Paul by posting a collage of PRIME sponsored athletes suffering defeats as well as a clearly edited image of 'The Maverick.'

The collage included a caption that insinuates what happens when combat sports athletes collaborate with the sports drink brand.

Devin Haney was the latest combat sports athlete to fall victim to the 'PRIME curse' as he lost a majority decision to Ryan Garcia this past weekend. However, he didn't lose his WBC super lightweight title because 'KingRy' missed weight for their highly anticipated clash.

Despite being the favorite heading into the bout, Haney was dominated by Garcia, who knocked him down three times en route to the decision win, shocking many in the boxing community.
