McGregor’s coach Dillon Danis says he is the highest paid fighter in Bellator

Conor McGregor’s BJJ coach Dillon Danis signed a deal with Bellator recently and he is wasting no time when it comes to making a statement.

Danis, who is yet to make his MMA debut, mentioned during his appearance on the MMA Hour that he is the highest paid fighter on the Bellator roster, which also includes the likes of Chael Sonnen, Fedor Emelianenko, Phil Davis and many other notable names.

“I have a bigger following and a bigger name than anyone on the roster. So at the end of the day I wasn’t surprised. It was the right move for them. You can put any of those bums against me, and they’ll get a rating. I’m the highest-paid guy in Bellator now, so that’s all I can say,” Danis said.

The 23-year-old is not currently scheduled for any fight in Bellator but his debut is expected to come around with a lot of hype.
