A Bellator fighter suffocated by security
A new video of the arrest of Bellator fighter Dillon Danis shows the former world champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu in an unflattering light.
Danis, a longtime friend and training partner of Conor McGregor, was arrested and charged with disorderly driving after an alleged incident that took place at a bar in Seaside Heights, NJ, according to MMA Fight, who cited a subpoena. Danis allegedly “created a disturbance” at the Beachcomber Bar and Grill, which led to his arrest.
Details of the arrest came a day after a video was released of Danis grappling with police and security as he is handcuffed, lifted off the ground and taken into custody.
A new eyewitness video appeared on social media moments before Danis, 28, was kidnapped on Wednesday. The video shows a security guard applying what looks like a rear choke to overpower Danis, who appears to be typing.
