MMA Fighter Dillon Danis Offers To Pay For Jiu-Jitsu Lessons For Bullied Kid

MMA fighter Dillon Danis has offered to pay for a bullied kid to have Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lessons.

Danis, who is Conor McGregor's teammate, came across a video of a youngster being attacked in a bathroom by a number of other kids in a 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.

And the Bellator fighter was successful in his quest and managed to get in touch with the young lad, 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 told SPORTbible he has already got the gym set up and they are now working on a date for his first class.

Danis, who is 2-0 in Bellator courtesy of wins over Kyle Walker and Max Humphrey, has made a similar offer before as he hates seeing bullying.

'El Jefe' has been beefing with YouTube personality Jake Paul of late as talk of a fight between the two increases.
