Dillon Danis trolls Jorge Masvidal after he brings his kids to UFC 287 weigh-ins

Controversial mixed martial artist Dillon Danis trolled UFC star Jorge Masvidal on social media. He laughed at Masvidal bringing his kid to UFC 287 weigh in and connected it to Colby Covington’s insult.

Jorge Masvidal and his old teammate Colby Covington aren’t having a good relationship. They used to be good friends but have been beefing since around 2018. The two eventually met in the octagon at UFC 272 in March of last year.

The tension was getting higher leading up to the bout with Colby throwing more personal insults. One of them was him calling Masvidal a “deadbeat father”, implying that Masvidal doesn’t take care of his children. Colby won the match via unanimous decision after heavily dominating Masvidal. But, their altercation hasn’t ended.

Now, Jorge Masvidal is up for another octagon return. The 38-year-old is set to face another tough athlete, ranked no.5 Gilbert Burns. They are scheduled to co-headline UFC 287 this weekend. During the official weigh in session, Masvidal was seen bringing his daughter and son along.

This prompted Dillon Danis to troll him on Twitter, saying that Colby’s insult resulted in him taking care of his children.

“Colby Covington really bullied Jorge Masvidal into taking care of his kids.” Danis wrote.

It isn’t clear if Masvidal really is a deadbeat or not. However, ‘Gamebred’ didn’t take this insult lightly. After losing to Colby at UFC 272, Masvidal attacked Colby in a restaurant in Miami. Colby decided to press charges and Masvidal is currently facing three felony charges.

UFC 287 will be held in Masvidal’s hometown Miami. This will be a rare moment where Masvidal performs in front of his family. He said that the idea of inspiring the young generation makes him more motivated.

“I’m here with my people, my family, the city that birthed me, raised me and matured me. Now I get to compete in front of them in the flesh. I’ve been [fighting] all over the world, and it’s hard to put into words. People I went to school with, people older than me, there’s young kids in those stands that are here right now that I’m gonna inspire.” Masvidal said in an interview with ESPN.
