Dillon Danis Got Slapped & Removed from UFC 268

Dillon Danis isn’t done aggravating everyone who crosses his path. As a longtime New Yorker Danis wanted to attend UFC 268 however his day went south when he crossed paths with Ali Abdelaziz – former Khabib Nurmagomedov Manager.

Danis is rumored to have been an instigator to Abdelaziz multiple times and it seems that this time he prevailed having had clients in the building.

John Morgan of MMAJunkie reported:

Ali Abdelaziz slapped Dillon Danis backstage tonight at #UFC268 according to multiple people who witnessed the incident. Danis was then apparently removed from the building. Reached out to @AliAbdelaziz00, but he declined to comment.


This somewhat mirrors an anecdote another Ali client told recently – KAyla Harrison.

“Oh my god, are we still talking about this? It was years ago. Well, I didn’t punch him, I slapped him, I think. It wasn’t that serious. He and Ali were beefing, or something was going on. We went out after one of my fights, Ali had done his thing where he like, magically gets VIP somewhere, whatever. Dillon was there and he was kinda like, gonna start stuff with the guys and I was like ‘you aren’t gonna start stuff with my guys’ so I just pulled his hoodie, got in his face a little bit and that was it.”

Danis’ own media coverage was more focused on his ongoing feud with Michael Bisping.
