Evidently, the pair of hotheads are not fond of each other. But things got a little more heated after they chatted through their Instagram DM. Ryan challenged Danis to a fight at his gym, to which Danis never showed up. But he claimed that he did on a recent podcast episode with notable media personality Ariel Helwani. Danis also insisted that ‘The King’ ran away from his sight when he approached him.

The former ADCC World champion already knew he would run away from the fight. But he did not appreciate Danis spreading lies about their encounter. “Talking is the easy part, winning isn’t. Maybe when the guy you’re talking about has more ADCC medals than you have ADCC wins you should just shut up 😂”

Ryan asked him to stay quiet more often until he could actually back his big talk.
