Dillon Danis Pays For Bullied Kid To Have Jiu-Jitsu Lessons

Dillon Danis Pays For Bullied Kid To Have Jiu-Jitsu Lessons

MMA fight Dillon Danis has paid for a 14-year old kid to start jiu-jitsu training after he was bullied in school.

Danis, who is Conor McGregor's teammate, came across a video of Baltimore teenager Keyday Oungan being attacked in a bathroom by a number of other kids in a truly horrible watch.

The 26-year old posted the video on his social media and expressed his interest in tracking him down and helping him out after being angered by what he saw.

The Bellator fighter was successful in doing so, managing to get in touch with the young lad and sending him a direct message to inform him of his gesture.

"I wanna pay for a membership to the closest jiu jitsu gym nearest to you if you are interested." Danis wrote.

"For real? Wow." the shocked child replied.

"Yea [sic] of course, that video broke my heart my man sorry you had to go through that but I got your back let's do this." Danis sent back.

Danis was able to convince Keyday to get onboard and he enrolled onto this course this week. The New Jersey native suffered from bullying himself as a youngster and says it saved his life, hence him stepping in and making a difference with the youth of today.

Danis is hopeful of making this a regular occurrence and suggested setting up an organisation whereby bullied kids can train in martial arts.
