Dillon Danis Posts Footage Of Him Sparring, Fans Think It Was His First Ever Day Of Training

Dillon Danis has been panned on social media after posting footage of him sparring.

The 28-year-old returned to training yesterday after a spell out of action and said he would be "taking everyone’s head off mark my words" after his first day back.

But judging by the quality of his work in the session, it was universally agreed by MMA fans that no heads will be getting taken off.

Danis, who is 2-0 in Bellator, looked incredibly shoddy with his striking technique in what was a messy sequence all-round.

His defence too was lacklustre, with Conor McGregor's teammate leaving himself exposed to a straight, clean shot early on.

'El Jeje's background is in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, where he is a black belt. But while his grappling game is strong, fans concurred that his striking was anything but.

Middleweight Danis trained with McGregor ahead of his fights against Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov - heavily involved in the melee that followed in Las Vegas following the lightweight title bout.

He hasn't fought since June 2019 when he submitted Max Humphrey at Bellator 222.

In October he appeared to be choked out by a security guard outside a club, while more recently he's been beefing with MMA journalist Ariel Helwani.

Helwani welcomed the New Year in by absolutely ending Danis on Twitter.



At least Danis has his next fight sorted.
