Dillon Danis is fighting in June and as such he’s been giving interviews like crazy. In his most recent interview during the Bellator press conference Danis explained away the animosity between himself and Aj Agazarm:
Back in the day before he turned into who he was – he was like a little fanboy sweetheart he’s always only like wow me do stuff. And we’ll get drinks and then I was like you know I didn’t really mind
him and then switched over and then he was just trying to call me out so he gets popular.
Recently a number of rumors surfaced claiming AJ Agazarm had some sort of a stake in flograppling and that was one of the reasons why he kept on being booked by so many promotions in spite of lackluster performances.
Agazarm was previously quoted saying:
“What’s your beef with Dillon?” Helwani asked.
“You think that I spent thousands of dollars and flew all the way across the country to talk about Dillon Danis?” Agazarm responded. (Helwani retorted that AJ had actually brought Danis up first in text messages in the lead-up to the interview.)
“Look, Dillon Danis was plucked from obscurity with no real accomplishments in BJJ to be an entourage member for Conor McGregor,” said Agazarm. “He’s got a batting average of .500 at black belt, he’s got like 30 matches total. You know how many matches I have? 200. That’s a substantial amount…I destroyed him twice.”
He didn’t stop there.
“It’s disrespectful to consider yourself the ‘face of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’ when you’ve got guys at a much higher level with much better results.” Agazarm named Felipe Pena, Lucas Lepri, Buchecha, and Roger Gracie as the actual face of jiu-jitsu.
“Does [the jiu-jitsu community] laugh at him, or with him?” Helwani asked.
