Is Kevin Lee Vs. Dillon Danis Even a Thing?
UFC Lightweight Veteran and Bellator Noob Air Beef
After hearing an interview with UFC lightweight veteran, Kevin Lee where he referenced an informal training experience with the self-professed "highest paid guy in Bellator", Dillon Danis where Lee said he basically had his way with the former BJJ superstar. Dillon was quick to react via social media and offer a grappling match with Kevin Lee with each party putting up $100,000 and the winner to take all.
Kevin Lee has stated that the match is agreed upon and he has suggested that it take place during the week of UFC 229 when Dillon's MMA mentor Conor McGregor returns to the UFC Octagon versus Khabib Nurmagomedov in one of the most highly anticipated matches in the promotion's history.
