Dillon Danis has been an interesting signing for Bellator. He came over to the promotion to build his career and become a big name. So far he has only competed in MMA two times with one fight in 2018 and the other in 2019.
Bellator President Scott Coker was recently asked about him and whether or not he would be making a return. He spoke to MMAJunkie about Dillon Danis and what could be next.
“If Dillon is ready to compete and fight at the level he needs to compete at here in Bellator then give us a call and let’s put him in,” Coker told MMA Junkie. “Let’s get you back. Last year I think he was plagued with injuries and it really hurt his getting back into the cage in 2021 this year, but hopefully, we get him back next year. We would love to have Dillon back, but he’s gonna have to do his part too and if he can get to that point where he could fight at this level then let’s put him in.”
Dillon Danis has been trying to box Jake Paul but has been mocked by the combat sports world every time. He is still young so a return to MMA could still be in the cards, especially with Bellator willing to keep him on the roster.
It is not clear what Dillon Danis will be able to do next. Bellator will be looking to get him back out in the cage in 2022 if he is willing.
