It is going to be quite a while before the fighter is seen in action again because Danis recently underwent a seven hour reconstructive knee surgery.
The fighter commented on the medical procedure via Twitter:
7 hour surgery to reconstruct my knee today this has been one of the toughest tests of my career, but i’m fully committed to take it head on and come back stronger than ever you can break my body but never my spirit! pic.twitter.com/ExK3RMMNW6— Dillon Danis (@dillondanis) March 7, 2020
Bellator MMA officials also issued the following statement to MMA Junkie on Danis’ condition:
“We’ll be in touch with Dillon and his management team in the coming weeks to discuss a potential timeline for his return. In the meantime, we wish him a full and speedy recovery.”
There is no word yet as to a timeline for Danis’ return to action, but more should be known as the fighter heals up from the surgery.
