Bellator 238: Dillon Danis draws 8th-ranked welterweight in all of Mississippi for Jan. 25 showdown

MMA: Bellator 198-Danis vs Walker Dave Mandel-USA TODAY Sports

My original headline mentioned Dillon Danis fighting Kegan Gennrich, but unless you’ve trained at Fox Valley Grappling Club in Appleton, Wisconsin, you’ve probably never heard of the latter, so I figured it was better to list him by rank.

And if being ranked 8th among active Mississippi pro welterweights doesn’t impress you, then you should also know that Gennrich (2-1) is also ranked 167th in the midwest, according to Tapology, and 512th in the United States — so Danis better protect his neck.

Gennrich shares similar rankings at lightweight, which means he’ll be gaining quite a bit of weight for this 175-pound catchweight showdown, booked for the upcoming Bellator 238 card on Sat., Jan. 25, 2020 inside The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., an event headlined by featherweight champion Julia Budd and UFC import, Cris Cyborg.

Danis is 2-0 under the Bellator MMA banner with both victories coming by way of first-round submission.
