Dillon Danis responds to Errol Spence Jr. after Boxer made an explicit remark about a Bellator event that would take place in July of this year.
On July 29, the much-anticipated Bellator MMA vs. Rizin 2 fight takes place. The event will take place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, and is jointly promoted by Bellator MMA and the Rizin Fighting Federation.
The Bellator Lightweight World Grand Prix quarterfinal match between former Bellator Featherweight Champion A.J. McKee and former Bellator Lightweight Champion Patricky Pitbull will be the main event of the show.
In a tweet, Spence wrote:
"Nobody gives a fu*k about Bellator MMA, July 29 👨🏽🦯."
Dillon Danis, who is not one to back down from a challenge, answered right away, vowing to uphold Bellator's honour. Danis, well-known for his connection to Conor McGregor, retaliated to Spence by saying:
"I honestly don't know who you are, but if you can survive one round in a real fight against me, I'll donate 5 million to any charity of your choice."
Danis gained notoriety in the MMA world in 2016 when he joined Conor McGregor's training camp as a mentor and training partner for his eagerly anticipated rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202.
At Bellator 198 in 2018, Danis made his MMA debut, defeating Kyle Walker with a toe-hold choke in the opening round. In his subsequent match at Bellator 222 against Max Humphreys, he extended his winning streak by winning via armbar in the opening frame.
