I guess combat sports bad boy Dillon Danis is getting used to scrapping outside the cage, which is kind of dumb for a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, because that’s the only place you can get paid to throw down.
Nevertheless, the jiu-jitsu wizard is looking to rebound from his UFC 229 draw against Khabib Nurmagomedov, which took place last Saturday night (Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, by slugging it out with welterweight veteran Rafael dos Anjos.
Probably because the Brazilian clowned him on Twitter.
“This guy Dillan Danis, he is nobody, he just suck Conor’s balls and hide behind him, that’s his job,” Dos Anjos wrote. “He’s never going to make it, being in Conor’s corner is his career highlight.”
Danis is charged with teaching “Notorious” how to defend submission attempts, so either McGregor forgot what he learned, or he’s got a shitty instructor, as Nurmagomedov was able to secure the tap in the UFC 229 lightweight main event (watch the replay here).
“Let’s fight then, fuck commissions, let’s meet up and fight you pussy,” Danis fired back. “Little bitch, you give [up] every fight, you no heart rat.”
Dos Anjos was expected to fight McGregor back in early 2016; however, a late injury gave him pause and he was replaced by Nate Diaz, who shocked the world by submitting the power-punching Irishman, which then led to the hiring of Danis.
So using the six degrees of Conor McGregor, along with a revised version of MMA math, we can blame the Dos Anjos injury on the UFC 229 post-fight melee.
