Dillon Danis recently improved his MMA record to 2-0 with a victory over Max Humphrey via submission.
The Brazillian jiu-jitsu expert appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show and made a very bold prediction on a potential Jon Jones fight. Here’s what Dillon Danis had to say about facing the legendary fighter –
“I offered to do a grappling match with him,” Dillon Danis said. “If we fought in MMA, I feel like, from his stance and how tall he is, if I did an Imanari roll I would take his leg home with me.
“Why not? I come from jiu jitsu where we fight the biggest guys,” he added when asked why he believed he could overcome the size disadvantage. “I’ve fought guys that are like 300 pounds in jiu jitsu. You have to do it. I fought seven of them in the same day. So I don’t know man, I’m a different kind of martial artist. I’ve been doing this since I was a kid, training with anybody and anywhere.”
Although he would be surrendering around 30 pounds of weight to Jones, and quite a bit of height and length, Danis is confident he could earn the tap if he attacked the UFC champ’s legs.
