Danis Fined And Suspended For UFC 229 Brawl

The initial target of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s post-UFC 229 main event rage, Dillon Danis, has been handed his punishment for his role in the brawl that followed the UFC lightweight title fight between Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.

Danis, who acted as a cornerman for McGregor’s first MMA fight in over two years, would be handed a seven month suspension retroactive to the October 6th melee at the T-Mobile Arena, by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Danis will be allowed to compete again beginning on May 6th, but must pay a fine of $7,500 before he’s allowed to fight and be licensed in the state of Nevada.

This obviously delays Danis’ return to Bellator, who signed the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt in March 2017, with Danis claiming he was the highest-paid fighter on the promotion’s roster.
