We best know Dillon Danis is good friends with the UFC’s pay-per-view king, Conor McGregor. Danis is often seen cornering McGregor during his fights and is often present with him at social events. He is also an MMA fighter and has competed in Bellator under the moniker of ‘El Jefe.’

Recently, the Bellator fighter took to his Twitter to announce a $5000 giveaway and was slammed by fight fans for it. Danis has announced these giveaways in the past as well, but fans claim that his giveaway is just a scam, and he never pays up. He promised to give a prize to someone who liked his tweet if Miami Heat beat the Boston Celtics in the NBA conference finals.

He wrote, If the Miami Heat win this game and beat the Boston Celtics, I’ll give one person who likes this tweet $5,000… Must be following @dillondanis.” Soon after this, fight fans trolled him in the comments section of the tweet.

One of the users slammed McGregor’s teammate and made fun of his fight payout. He said, ‘you make $200 per fight. Where does that 5k come from?’

A fight fan trolled the Bellator fighter for these claims and joked that he would take $5,000 from Conor McGregor. He wrote, “you be asking Conor (McGregor) for 5 grand again so.”

Another user slammed this Tweet as a scam and said that Dillon Danis will not pay up. He wrote, “you will not pay. Just like the other giveaways.”

He said, “the body’s doing good. I’m out here my full team you know. Obviously, I’m enjoying the Monaco Grand Prix and then you know. After that, we’re going to up the training a little bit, bit by bit. I should be able to kick now. Another CT scan now in the coming days and then I’ll be clear to kick. Once I can kick and grapple, I’ll be back in no time. So boxing training has gone well and strength training and that so I’m excited to get back.”
