It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen Dillon Danis in the cage. The MMA rookie and bjj expert Danis is 1-0 having last fought close to a year ago – in April of 2018.
Dillon Danis was fined $7,500 for his role in the infamous UFC 229 brawl and suspended for 6 months retroactively.
“It cost him significant money,” Danis’ attorney, Mike Mersch, today told MMAjunkie.
“His goal is to get back and to fight for Bellator as soon as possible. It looks like he has the potential to do that in mid- to late May, and so the suspension runs obviously just before that, and this was something that he was interested in pursuing because again, whether he agrees with 100 percent of the details of this, that and the other thing, that’s not his goal. His goal is to get back and start fighting again. That’s why this settlement mad sense for him at the time.”
And true to his attorney’s word Danis confirmed a contract has been signed:
just signed the contract for my next fight!
