As a legitimately top notch grappler,” Dillon Danis’ transition to MMA would have been something which hardcore fans retained their attention on. But Conor McGregor’s friend and training partner has got a skill more notable than his BJJ accolades: the ability to get under your skin of individuals he will never struggle. Danis irked Khabib Nurmagomedov so poorly that after he submitted McGregor at UFC 229, “The Eagle” flew from the cage and started a brawl just trying to attack Danis. Now, Danis was able to frighten another undefeated fighter.

Yesterday, Danis talked with Ariel Helwani on his recently announced second MMA struggle and took enough opportunity to call out Ben Askren, with the claim that he was the easiest fight potential.

“” I want to go against Ben Askren,” Danis said. “we have to perform a cross promotion. I’ll put a million dollars versus him because it’d be the easiest struggle . I’d tap him easy, Ariel. He’s so un-athletic and he’s so bad on the ground. A grappling match that wouldn’t likee be a match. That would be like 20-30 minutes. A struggle, I’d still overcome him at the first round but he wouldn’t want to fight me. ”

Askren is just a former Olympic wrestler by having a superb amateur wrestling career, winning two national championships and earning NCAA d1 all american honors four times, in addition to being one of four men to ever win the Dan Hodge trophy twice. He’s gone to have a sensational MMA career, amassing a 19-0 listing with one No Contest. Danis, in comparison is almost strictly a contest grappler at this point, with only made his MMA debut last April. This disparity and Danis’ fearless claim did actually have had their desired effect on Askren, who’d spent three solid hours mocking Danis on Twitter after he discovered the comments.

Aside from attacking the absurdity of both Danis’ $ 1million bet, Askren also took enough opportunity to make a few videos roasting Danis because of his paychecks qualifications, including the time he ridiculously claimed he was a far better version of Khabib.

“Hey Dillon, remember once you told Conor you were an improved version of Khabib and had him ready for this struggle? L-O-L. Boom, roasted. ”

“Dillon, you didn’t place at the senior high school state championship! You suck. Boom, roasted. ”

“Yo Dillon, that can you consider more your dad, conor-mcgregor or even Gary Tonon? Boom, roasted. ”

But perhaps the most personal of all the attacks as Askren’s roasting of Danis’ look. Askren, that had a cult of personality across his “funky” afro in college, a mode he still keeps today, went to the discriminated against Danis, clutching his bleached blond hairstyle.

I mean, seriously, who invisibly their hair ? You suck. Boom, roasted. ”

This can be maybe not the very first time Askren has gone after Danis also it nearly assuredly won’t be the past. Meanwhile, Danis features a struggle with Max Humphrey at Bellator 221 on May 11th to keep himself busy and Askren is going to take attendance at London this weekend to pick a fight with Darren Till.
