Former UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping has seen just about everything the MMA world has to offer.
“Not only is he Conor McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach, he’s seeming to try to morph and copy McGregor’s antics,” Bisping said on Believe You Me. “Certainly his clothing. Conor does wear some fucking really nice, cool shit and Dillon Danis is like the poor, second-hand, overwashed, hand-me-down version because his clothes are fucking terrible. But, he’s trying to be Conor so hard, it’s laughable. He even said, ‘After this weekend, I will own Bellator.’ That sounds vaguely like a line where Conor said, ‘I will own boxing.’”
Hand-me-down version of McGregor or not, one thing Bisping believes is that the antics Danis has been using are starting to work.
“He probably knows that this kind of behavior, as it did with me, encourages more people to want to see you get knocked out than win. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. The bullshit that he’s doing, the shit that he’s spewing is working,” says Bisping.
While Danis did recently make his professional MMA debut, it did come against a fighter with a losing record in Kyle Walker.
