Dillon Danis made his professional MMA debut earlier this year at Bellator 198, defeating Kyle Walker by first round submission.
While Danis may not be booked for another bout at the moment, it would appear that he does have another matter at hand to deal with.
That’s because Danis has challenged UFC veteran Kevin Lee to a grappling match, with the first person to score a submission getting $100,000.
It all began when the UFC star appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show and he said the following about training with Danis.
“We rolled together a few good times now. Ask him. You ask him,” Lee said. “See if you get the real about how he feel about me and then or how it went between us, because I know Conor kinda looks up to Dillon a little bit, think he hot shit and he all this black belt and all this. Ask him what the real is and see if he tell you the truth. I started tricking off on him. Reverse triangles and all that.”
The comments would lead to this brief exchange between Lee and Danis via social media:

There is no word yet on when the proposed grappling encounter would take place, but fans would get a chance to watch it live as Danis said the bout would get streamed on Instagram Live.
