Bellator fighter Dillon Danis has been charged with disorderly conduct after an incident that happened last Saturday night in a Seaside Heights, New Jersey bar.
After a video was posted to Instagram yesterday showing Danis being apprehended by police officers, MMA Fighting was able to confirm his arrest with a spokesperson for the courts in Seaside Heights. They also obtained a court summons that reveals that the "disturbance" Danis created happened at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill and he is due in Seaside Heights Municipal Court on October 19 for the charge.
Danis is known for his jiu-jitsu skills and being a teammate of former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor. He's 2-0 as a pro mixed martial artist currently, last competing at Bellator 222 in July 2019 where he submitted Max Humphrey via an armbar in the first round. The 28-year old's only response to the incident has been the following tweet.
