Dillon Danis is a well-known BJJ practitioner, with an impressive track record in the sport.
He has been absent from competitive BJJ for some time but is now reportedly set to make a return.
The exact date and location of his return have not been announced yet.
Danis has been focusing on his MMA career, training alongside former UFC champion Conor McGregor.
He has been outspoken on social media and in interviews, often attracting controversy.
Danis has a significant following on social media, with over 1 million followers on Instagram alone.
His return to BJJ is expected to generate significant interest from fans of the sport. The return was announced in late April on the social media of Polaris.
Bellator CEO Scott Coker has been adamant Danis return to MMA prior to his attempt to box KSI in January of this year. The KSI boxing date fell through and Coker later said Bellator is considering their options regarding Danis.
“He’s reached out to me and said, ‘Hey, I want to fight.’ So we’re going to try and get him in the rotation, but it’s been a long time. It’s been a long time since he fought, so I hope he’s been training and I hope he’s been doing his thing, but at the end of the day it’s really going to be up to him and how bad he wants to fight and does he really want to compete at this level. It’s going to be something that only he can answer.”
“We have a contract with the guy, and we’re going to honor the contract,” Coker added. “But like I said, it’s going to be ‘Do you want to really fight?’ That’s really the question here, to be honest. That’s the question.
“If you want to fight, come back in here, not that you start from ground zero, but you’re going to be in some tough competition. Test yourself and then let’s see what happens.”
Now Danis has gone and talked to The Schmo telling him, he’s been begging Bellator for a comeback:
“I’ve been begging for a fight with Bellator, and, you know, they’ve been kind of been. I don’t know, they’ve been playing me, so I’m allowed to do my own thing. Now, what do you need? I’ve been begging for a fight for months. I’m ready to go. I’ve been ready to go.”
In terms of the Misfits pullout Danis added:
” I can’t talk about that because I’m working with them right now, but one day I’m going to tell the truth. So you haven’t been telling the truth? I haven’t told the truth about anything. Okay, I’m going to tell the whole story, but right now know we’re working on the deal.”
