A month after the street brawl between Dillon Danis and Anthony Taylor made headlines, the former has opened up on his side of the fight, indicating that it was all for Taylor to grab attention.

They know I’m the king and that they’re going to get clicks after: Dillon Danis

Danis, a Bellator veteran with a 2-0 record, is all set to make his boxing debut against KSI next month on DAZN PPV. While it will be the first time in three years that ‘El Jefe’ will be seen in action, Danis has already been involved in a brawl, which took place away from the cage or the ring- on the streets, against Anthony Taylor.

During the weigh-ins for Misfits Boxing 3, Danis slapped and threw coffee at KSI, who, in turn, chased down Danis, sided by several other fighters including ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor himself, who is a Bellator veteran himself. Outside the weigh-in venue, Danis received a right hook from Taylor.

A month since that altercation, Danis has spilled the beans on his side of the story- remaining nonchalant about the entire incident, while claiming that it was all because of Taylor wanting attention, whom Danis says he didn’t even know before the brawl.

“He’s a f****** loser. I didn’t even know who it was, to be honest with you,” Danis revealed to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour. “I thought it was a homeless guy chirping, yelling. We were going to record and this guy’s screaming, ‘You hurt my friend, KSI!’ And I was like, who the f*** is this. Just get the f*** out of here.”

“I didn’t even feel it, I didn’t have a mark. I didn’t even know who that is! [He punched me] because he’s a loser and he wanted to make a name for himself. It probably did. It’s probably the most — I don’t even know who that is, I swear,” Danis went on, “It’s the most f***** up because I was with two people that can’t fight. So we come outside, Hasim’s [Rahman Jr.s’] camp is trying to fight me, then there was a bunch of boxing guys that want to do it, and then a bunch of YouTubers, all just trying because they know that I’m the f****** king and that they’re going to get clicks after.” [H/T MMA Fighting]
