“I’ve got one last thing to say,” Danis said in his post-fight speech. “Jon Jones, you’re a f***ing b***h!”
Almost two years later, Dillon Danis hasn’t changed his thoughts on the former UFC Light Heavyweight champion. The famous grappling specialist and one of the best BJJ fighters took to his Instagram account on Thursday. He shared the clip of his previous Jon Jones callout and left a message for one of the dirtiest fighters in the history of UFC.
“If you get past Gustafsson I’ll be waiting kid,” Dillon Danis wrote.
Jon Jones is set to fight Alexander Gustafsson at the main event of UFC 232 on Saturday night. The event was relocated from Nevada to California because of Jones’ “abnormal drug test”. The two have already fought at UFC 165 where Jones won via unanimous decision. Yet, many thought Gustafsson should have been claimed the winner of this clash.
Alexander Gustafsson (18-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) didn’t fight since May 28, 2017, when he put Glover Teixeira to sleep. Before this match, he earned a decision win over Jan Blachowitz at UFC Fight Night 193 on September 3, 2016.
Jon Jones (22-1, 1 NC MMA, 16-1, 1 NC MMA) had his last fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 on July 29, 2017. He originally won via head kick KO but his samples contained Turinabol, an anabolic steroid, and the fight was overturned to no contest. Jones was fined 15 months, following “substantial assistance rule”, after judge Richard McLaren believed he didn’t intentionally break the rules. His penalty expired in October 2018.
Dillon Danis competes in Bellator, where he made his MMA debut versus Kyle Walker on April 28, 2018. “El Jefe” won via toe hold.
What do you think, who’d win if Jon Jones and Dillon Danis meet? Jones is a better striker, but if the fight is taken to the ground, anything can happen!
