Conor McGregor’s jiu jitsu coach Dillon Danis isn’t fighting enough to be in MMA news for good reasons. The BJJ black belt is 2-0 at Bellator and hasn’t entered the cage since June 2019. A lengthy boxing match with Jake Paul never materialized as Danis’ knee is an absolute mess. So all we get from the once hot prospect is the twitter chats and the occasional story where he gets punked in nightclubs.
The most recent incident of this nature came last week when Danis was arrested at a New Jersey bar, with footage showing a bouncer grabbing the IBJJF World Champion in a bare back choke. Details were scarce… or at least they were until UFC fighter and longtime Danis nemesis Al Iaquinta unearthed the bouncer who typed Danis and interviewed him for his podcast, ” Call Me Al “.
According to the bouncer, who is simply called Chance, the bar had caught a few children trying to enter with fake IDs. the altercation that led to his suffocation.
“I’m like, ‘Sorry, brother, you’re not coming in. I need some ID.’,” Chance said (via MMA Junkie). “And then he said, ‘Oh, you don’t know who I am? And I was like, ‘Sorry, man, I don’t know who you are. I need some ID. ‘ So he googles himself and shows me the google page, and I’m like, “That’s not an ID, brother. I need a driver’s license, a passport, whatever. thing to find out how old you are. After that he started to get a little restless or whatever it was that I didn’t know who he was and everything.
As Danis got angry with another doorman, Chance circled behind the wrestling expert.
“That’s when Dillon tried to punch,” he said. “It wasn’t a good punch. He tried to punch him, he missed it, and that’s when I grabbed him by the neck, pulled him down. Usually every time I do this, I legitimately choke you for a second or two until you realize the situation you find yourself in. ? Are you doing well ?’ And he’s giving me a little nudge, so I just gave him a little hug until the cops got everyone under control and could give me a hand.
Needless to say, Chance the Bouncer is now a popular man among anti-Danis fans. Danaher Death Squad member and three-time ADCC World Champion Gordon Ryan sent tickets to Chance ADCC, and he also accepted a free year of training at Tom DeBlass Academy.
As for Danis, he faces a disorderly conduct charge that could result in up to six months in prison.
