Dillon Danis and Ali Abdelaziz recently were part of a fiery exchange on social media on Wednesday. The ongoing animosity between them stems from Danis’ association with Conor McGregor and Abdelaziz being a manager of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The catalyst for this recent exchange was Islam Makhachev’s inquiry into the disappearance of his verified blue check. Seizing the opportunity, Danis taunted Makhachev by stating that he should first earn his blue belt before aspiring for the blue tick.
Not one to back down, Ali Abdelaziz responded swiftly to Danis’ taunts. He retaliated by posting a screenshot of an article claiming that he had slapped Danis at UFC 268.
Dillon Danis then fired back with a personal attack. He inquired about the well-being of Abdelaziz’s son Noah, something not many people know. Naturally, Conor McGregor previously brought up the fact that Abdelaziz had a child called Noah during the UFC 229 pre-fight press conference.
Ali Abdelaziz wasted no time in responding to Danis’ mention of his son. In a fiery comeback, he conveyed that Noah had grown up and was capable of delivering a slap to Danis as well.
Danis then fired back by tweeting:
Considering the deep-rooted animosity between Dillon Danis and Ali Abdelaziz, it comes as no surprise that their war of words persists. The ongoing exchange indicates that the animosity between them is unlikely to fade anytime soon.
With a 2-0 record as a pro competitor, Danis last competed in Bellator 222 back in June 2019. Injuries and unforeseen circumstances have prevented his return to the ring, including a canceled boxing match against KSI. As of now, the timing and certainty of Danis’ next matchup remain uncertain.
Danis has been vying for a chance to get back in the cage and is claiming to have contacted Belaltor on multiple occasions asking for an opponent.
Now Danis has gone and talked to The Schmo telling him, he’s been begging Bellator for a comeback:
“I’ve been begging for a fight with Bellator, and, you know, they’ve been kind of been. I don’t know, they’ve been playing me, so I’m allowed to do my own thing. Now, what do you need? I’ve been begging for for months. I’m ready to go. I’ve been ready to go.”
