This weekend, elite grappler Dillon Danis made his MMA debut at Bellator 198, where he ate a few punches but ultimately tapped out a scrub like it was nothing.
Big deal, right? Well, Danis is pals with some Irish lad named Conor McGregor, and Danis talks like he’s the greatest thing to walk the face of the Earth.
Folks, that could be the recipe for a compelling rivalry… and it looks like former champ Michael Chandler might be taking the bait.
Just catching up to #bellator198 @dillondanis said he was the “highest paid fighter in @BellatorMMA” but I think he meant to say “most un-athletic fighter in Bellator” and that was against a man with a losing record. #cringe #slow #sloth #bellator198

Obviously, there’s a gigantic gulf between the two when it comes to experience. And if Danis keeps eating punches like he did in his first fight, Chandler will murder him. But what if?
Ponder that while watching these Bellator 198 highlights, which include Danis’ greatest hits.
