Rafael dos Anjos challenges Dillon Danis to ‘jump in the cage’ and fight

Rafael dos Anjos fires back at Dillon Danis, challenging the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champion to a ‘$200k’ fight.

There’s some bad blood between Rafael dos Anjos and Conor McGregor’s jiu jitsu coach Dillon Danis.

Shortly after the controversial UFC 229 post-fight brawl involving Danis, Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor, dos Anjos blasted Danis on social media, calling him a ‘nobody’ who ‘sucks Conor’s balls.

Danis, who was physically attacked by Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, responded by calling RDA a ‘no heart rat’ and challenged the former lightweight champion to a street fight.

Dos Anjos will accept Danis’ challenge under one condition: each fighter puts $100,000 on the line and the winner walks away with $200,000.

The Brazilian told Danis to get the money from his ‘dad’, Conor McGregor.

Danis, who fights under the Bellator banner (1-0), has yet to respond but expect the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champ to issue a comeback over the weekend. The 25-year-old was reportedly concussed from his altercation with Nurmagomedov and was seen partying in Las Vegas shortly after the brawl.

Dos Anjos, who lost in an interim welterweight title fight to Colby Covington at UFC 225, is expected to take on Kamaru Usman at The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale on Nov. 30.
