Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Man, Dillon Danis is really committed to his bit of copying Conor McGregor’s every move in increasingly cringey fashion. The credentialed grappler — and very unproved MMA fighter — recently found himself in hot water with the law, and it hasn’t taken long for clips of the incident, as well as an alleged mugshot, to make rounds on the web (h/t MMAnews).
In the video below, an eventually handcuffed Danis is seen tussling with security and the police. The undefeated Bellator fighter is believed to have been at a bar in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, a town where drunken tomfoolery is generally rather tolerated.
Dillon Danis got arrested last night for trying to impersonate an MMA Fighter. pic.twitter.com/5aSbMS0uXF— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) September 19, 2021
In an apparent response to the arrest, Dylan responded with a quote from Scarface. In fact, he dropped the exact same Scarface quote as Conor McGregor did earlier this year after breaking his leg! Embarrassing!

At the moment, Danis is 2-0 in his professional MMA career, more accomplished in securing beefs with random fighters around the globe than actually winning inside the cage. Still, he’s expected to return to action in Bellator once his knee heals up fully ... assuming this legal trouble is handled quickly.

It is Nick Diaz fight week, and the only appropriate reaction is celebration.
Guess how many months are between the first and second Nick Diaz-Robbie Lawler fights.— Nick Baldwin (@NickBaldwinMMA) September 20, 2021
I’m not trying to pretend Tom Holland looks like a boxer, but this ain’t bad by celebrity standards!
Ciryl Gane with the slick moves!
Valentina Shevchenko is on that Tom Brady mindset, and her division should be deeply concerned.
A historic day for women’s Muay Thai:
Brian Kelleher vs. Sean O’Malley is a very reasonable match up, and I hope it happens.
Slips, rips, and KO clips
Ran straight into an absolutely nasty check hook ...
Damn, this foot sweep is as smooth as it gets!
Throwback Mauricio “Shogun” Rua violence!
Now here’s a sport I want to cover.
