The tweet said, ‘After buying Twitter, Elon Musk announces his first action as CEO… He will ban Dillon Danis indefinitely.”

After the post came out one of the rivals of the Bellator fighter, Danis thanked Musk and followed the tweet with a Dillion Dannis Twitter profile

Elon moves fast and thanks @MMAFPress for the breaking news.”

Dillion Danis initially retweeted this parody news post from the MMAFPress. However, it was removed later on.

Also, MMAFPress mentioned a fake quote from Elon Musk, “D**do Denise is a cancer to society and the faster we get him off Twitter,the better.”

Nate Diaz‘s friend and training partner Jake Shields showed major interest in the news. The two often engage in verbal sparring on Twitter. Dillion Danis has even teased a fight with the UFC veteran.

Anyhow, Danis has been out of the cage for quite some time now. If both fighters demand to face each other inside the cage, Bellator’s Scott Coker would be more than happy to welcome a fight between them.

Is Elon Musk buying UFC?
