Bellator’s Dillon Danis: ‘I Am The Best Grappler In MMA, There Isn’t Even A Close Second’
A Brazilian jiu-jitsu phenom Dillon Danis who serves as Conor McGregor’s grappling coach and training partner, successfully made an MMA debut earlier this year in April at Bellator 198 after submitting Kyle Walker (2-5) in the first round of their 175-pound catchweight bout.
Danis, a southpaw, came out in a McGregor-like striking stance only to get chased with two good power punches but jiu-jitsu expert quickly moved in for the clinch and instantly pulled guard. Danis deftly transitioned from a kneebar to a toehold and forced Walker to tap.
Last year Dillon Danis kicked out of Marcelo Garcia’s jiu-jitsu gym in New York over his online trolling behavior. Along the way, he also attracted some haters, and you better believe those numbers soared up when Khabib Nurmgaomedov leaped over the cage fence to attack Danis after submitting Conor Mcgregor at UFC 229 earlier this month. Dillon denied the rumors that he called Khabib a ‘Muslim rat.’
On Sunday afternoon Danis posted on Instagram, proclaiming himself the best grappler in MMA.
cannot wait to fight again and show the world that i am the best grappler in MMA. there isn’t even a close second 🙄
