Daniel Bryan gets called out.
Despite never competing in a sanctioned MMA bout, Daniel Bryan has made his fair share of enemies in the world of MMA. Following UFC 225, Bryan stated that he could beat Mike Jackson, the man who defeated CM Punk at UFC 225, "on the ground" if the two were to fight. Appearing on an episode of Heated Conversations, Bryan remained confident that he could hang with Jackson if the two were to fight. You can check out full quotes from that interview here.
Now, Bellator MMA fighter Aaron Chalmers is calling out Bryan.
