Yesterday, while Charles Oliveira was lifting the UFC Lightweight Championship high and celebrating the peak of his athletic career after an 8-win fight streak, his victory was being watched by Dillon Danis. Over the past week alone, Danis took to social media to call out the likes of Michael Bisping, Al Iaquinta, Jake Paul, and now Charles Oliveira.
Even though Oliveira is undoubtedly one of the best MMA fighters on the planet right now, this won’t stop the biggest troll in grappling from reaching out. In fact, he’s also gone after practically everyone down the years, including Jon Jones too.
Speaking on Twitter, he said “fake champion nobody cares“, followed by “literally shit Charles Oliveira i’d wipe my ass wit you.“ Unsurprisingly, this behavior has earned him a horde of enemies. From MMA fighters to viewers of grappling and BJJ, his attitude has grown tiresome.
So, what does Dillon Danis get up to these days when he’s not calling out Charles Oliveira? This is a good question that was asked on a recent podcast by Jake Paul. Even though Paul himself is a troll, in fairness he’s been active in the boxing world recently. Danis on the other hand was last active when he fought two unknowns in Bellator over two years ago.
Nonetheless, it seems that Danis is living a fairly lavish lifestyle, with his Instagram profile full of nice cars, supermodels and expensive jewellery. This begs the question as to where this wealth came from. Surely it isn’t from two forgettable Bellator fights? Looking closer, it’s probably from his families wealth. Growing up in a nice part of New York, like many rich kids he was awarded the life of training BJJ on a regular basis. On the one hand, it’s a shame to see him turn his back on BJJ which could have turned him into a champion.
So, for now, he’s in this weird space as a quasi-celebrity-fighter-troll who spends his days in between photos and tweets looking for more names to add to his profile. This is a bizarre existence, and with that said, welcome to social media in 2021.
