Dillon Danis just can’t catch a break. It hasn’t been even a month since the talented grappler emailed Bellator CEO Scott Coker he was ready to launch a comeback but he’s getting pushback already. Danis, 29, had undergone two knee reconstructions. But regardless of the state of his career – he might be a far better troll than he is a fighter.
Bellator MMA President Scott Coker revealed that the 29-year-old has been texting him to discuss his return earlier last month:
“He’s been texting me all weekend and saying he wants to get back in, he’s ready to get back in. So as soon as I get back home, I’m going to call him, we’re going to see if we can put something together for him. But it’s going to be up to him. He’s going to have to really want it. He’s going to [have to] train and get in there.” Scott said.
In the lead up to UFC 272, Danis offered a bounty of $3000 for his followers – if Masvidal happened to win. Masvidal was an underdog going into the event. But what followed after is decidedly more hilarious.
Once Danis had gotten social media attention he coveted – he proceeded to throw Masvidal under the bus saying: “Jorge Masvidal the journeyman of the ufc straight ?”
Jorge Masvidal the journeyman of the ufc straight ?

And this right here is what many prominent UFC fans and fighters took offense too. While some were quick to point out Danis hasn’t fought since 2019, others were more cruel in their estimates of Danis. Take a look at some of the best gems the following tweet prompted.
You should at least become a Bellator journeyman before talking all that.

This was the second time Danis had made the headlines in 2022 for all the wrong reasons. He previously called out Michael Bisping in an insult laced tirade.
“Dillon Danis, you shoot for a man’s leg on the street, I’m gonna stomp on your head. And, by the way, someone else is probably gonna run up and boot you in the face. You’re on the floor, you’re about to go for an Omoplata? Someone just stomps your f*cking head. There you go, jiu-jitsu that, you know what I mean? Bisping said.
Dillon Danis took to his Twitter account to prove Bisping’s claim. He even mentioned Bisping’s lost eye.
“Hey [Bisping] why don’t we put this to the test 100k to you if I lose. you one eyed b*tch.” Danis said.
Previously, Michael Bisping was also made fun of Dillon Danis for getting choked by a security guard during an event. During an interview on Youtube, the 42-year-old man was astonished by how Dillon Danis let the man choke him.
“The guy isn’t even a full time security man, he’s not a full time bouncer. He’s actually a chocolatier, that’s what he does for a living. The guy is a f*cking chocolatier, he’s a master of chocolates, that’s what he does and he was short on cash so he was doing a few hours as a doorman. He’s never done jiu-jitsu, he’s done a little bit of Krav Maga.” Bisping said.
