So far, Dillon Danis is known for two things since he signed with Bellator. He has had exactly zero MMA fights and is a training partner of Conor McGregor. This hasn’t stopped him from adopting McGregor’s personality and sounding almost exactly like him.
He joined the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani today and said some things we’ve heard from Conor numerous times before.
“I have a bigger following and a bigger name than anyone on the (Bellator) roster. At the end of the day, I wasn’t surprised. It was the right move for them. You can put any of those bums against me, and they’ll get a rating.”
“I’m the highest-paid guy in Bellator now, so that’s all I can say.”
Yesterday, Neiman Gracie took to his twitter and claimed that he and Dillon were scheduled to fight in Bellator (Gracie actually called him by the wrong name).
guys I was offered the fight with Dillon Davis at @BellatorMMA MSG. We agreed to the fight but he backed out. This is not the first time.

Helwani pressed Dillon about it and his answer was just kind of aloof. Almost like, it was news to him. After the show was posted, fans and fighters absolutely ripped Danis on social media.
Watch the entire MMA Hour interview and judge for yourself if the harsh critique is warranted.
