The Brash grappler Dillon Danis will make his MMA debut at Bellator 198
Dillon Danis is probably the most well-known fighter in MMA who has never set foot in a cage. He’s young, brash, outspoken and more or less Conor McGregor’s clone. He is Conor’s Jiu-Jitsu training partner and seemingly has patterned his image after the two-division Irish champion.
Danis is a decorated grappler and has a top-notch submission game. He has been very outspoken about his skill level so it will be interesting to see how he lives up to the hype.
Kyle Willaims (2-4) is being presented as a sacrificial lamb here. He has lost three fights in a row heading into this clash in three different organizations. He was unable to find a victory in King of the Cage, 3 River Throwdown, and Shamrock FC. That doesn’t bode well heading into his Bellator debut.
Fedor Emelianenko and Frank Mir will be in the main event of Bellator 198. The rest of the card can be seen here.
