Bellator isn’t able to sign Conor McGregor, but they did sign his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) coach, Dillon Danis. Danis, who is only 23 years old is a No-Gi World Champion, and will be making his MMA debut. Danis was given his black belt by the BJJ living legend, Marcelo Garcia.
There is no word on who Danis will face, but the fight is expected to come in the second half of 2017 and take place in the welterweight division.
Danis is very similar to his friend,Conor McGregor, as he is very confident and outspoken. Danis has already got into verbal feuds with Jon Jones and Rory McDonald.
