Al Iaquinta tries to bash Dillon Danis on Twitter, angers mini golf owners instead

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Iaquinta vs Sanchez Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight slugger, Al Iaquinta, is the latest mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter to complain about the antics of “overwashed” Bellator newbie Dillon Danis, who continues to get the press he’s looking for by pushing everyone’s buttons.

Hey, he had a great teacher.

But “Raging Al” was probably too busy beating on the heavy bag — or selling condos on Long Island — to proofread his latest tweet, which failed to shut down Danis and instead angered mini golf owners around the Tri-state area.

The Chandler he’s referring to is former Bellator MMA lightweight Michael Chandler, who also has beef with Danis after words were exchanged in the wake of the Bellator 198 event last weekend in Chicago.

Iaquinta is looking for his next fight after coming up short against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223 last month in Brooklyn, New York. Danis, meanwhile, has reportedly been named President of Bellator MMA.

In other stupid news, some wannabe MMA fighter got arrested after he Miyagi’d a swan.
