    Really enjoyed Dillon's interview with Ariel here. (Time Stamped)

    From his point of view it was Khalabeeb and his team that started everything outside the cage

    Actually just seems like a misunderstood but genuinely good kid

    he's not the worst guy in this scenario.

    but he's not necessarily a 'good guy' overall.
    I hope he's matured since he left Marcelo's, but I don't get that vibe.

    I don't know if he is a good guy or not. I remember not liking him much but when Khabib jumped at him and attacked him and he stood his ground and fought back I respected him. His suspension and fine was bullshit.

    How could anyone choose Shish Khabib and his whole Dagestani crew over Dillion Danis...

    Was told not to come back*



    I think he was probably an average kid that got a lot of attention for what he was doing as a brown belt and started hanging with the loud crowd and less with guys like Marcelo.

    He's not a well liked or respected person in the BJJ community..... Hell at this point, Ralph Gracie has more supporters and fans than Lap Dog Danis

    Not a good kid. Got too full of himself too quickly and now is trying to play that game even though everyone knows he's soft deep down.

    No, it would take him at least 2 minutes.... But on the flip side of this, if we were to box/kickbox/MT.... He'd go down within 3 minutes.

    Not saying that he doesn't have skills, he just isn't a top 50-100 BJJ practitioner.... His overall BJJ game is quicker than mine, but he's not rolling through me... I'll give credit to his leg lock entries, most likely how'd he'd catch me.... But here's what will blow your mind.... I can absolutely catch him as well.... He's got youth and young athleticism on his side, I have grit and knowledge on mine...... Hell he can be my kid (I'm still trying to see who his mama is, you never know).

    Striking I'll fuck him up badly.... Again, something I've done for 20 years vs the thing he's picked up a year ago.... It wouldn't be pretty for him. I should beat his ass, teach him respect, and do something his daddy never did...... Then again, I may be his dad sooooo..... My bad my bad

    That seems like a harsh assessment of a guy who did some stupid stuff when he was pretty young.

    I'm not sure how high a watermark that statement is considering some of BJJ's beloved figure.

    He's a hometown kid. Those who know know.

    Hence my reference to Ralph..... If the BJJ community (which I agree) does have issues with some of it's top figures, ALL collectively still feel that Dillon is a disrespectful shit.... That says a lot about him

    I usually just assume everyone from the tri-state area is a scumbag until I'm proven wrong

    My point is more that there are also trash bags whom are revered in the BJJ community.

    I just can't get past dude's smug demeanor and lack of self-awareness *shrug*

    I felt that way too until all that Shish Khabib nonsense went down. Also props to him riding solo with no fear in a nightclub in Vegas later that night after Shish Khabib Shish Khabib'd...

    For what it's worth I can remember hearing some unflattering things about Marcelo over the years too.

    considering he’s neck-and-neck with Artem for the honor of being the #2 star in combat sports history, Dillon’s down to earth humility is nothing short of astonishing

    This query posed is if Dillion is as big a douche as he's made out to be.... The answer is yes..... In a community where some of the top stars have controversial standings.... Across the board, the good people, the (as eloquently described by you) "trash bags", and the regular people ALL AGREE that Danis is a POS..... He the one thing everyone agrees on....... Who cares about the non argued fact that the BJJ community has a few tainted stars and legends..... Dillion Danis is a piece of shit.

    All his faults are cancelled out by him standing up to Shish Khabib and his Dagestani goons. He showed no fear whatsoever and was ready and willing to catch the fade...

    I have no issue with Khabib, or the Dagestani people..... There are plenty of great Dagestani people I know in Kiev who have been great to my family..... Dillion has been disrespectful to many in the BJJ community, and nothing he's done "cancels that out".
