Share the joy

BJJ black belt Dillon Danis won his second MMA fight at
Bellator 222 against Max Humphrey via submission. Performing at MSG minutes
away from his home, Danis backed up weeks of big talk with a very technical
performance that failed to see a second round.

Compared to his first fight, Danis came out much more aggressive
and controlled with an early takedown attempt and immediate recovery when
Humphrey stuffed it. Staying on the feet Danis maintained his distance as
Humphrey tried to close the gap with combinations. His second takedown attempt
found purchase against the fence, and Danis brought Humphrey deep into the

Peppering Humphrey with shots to the face, Danis advanced to
back mount and continued his ground and pound. As Humphrey posted up off the
floor, Danis attacked the neck with an RNC attempt. A short cycle formed wherein
Danis would alternate between threatening Humphrey’s neck with a choke, then
reverting to headshots when the choke defense went up.

With just over a minute thirty left in the round, Humphrey
posted on all fours in an attempt to shake Danis off his back, but Danis was
prepared with control of Humphrey’s left arm. As he fell to his side, Danis
transitioned from the back to an armbar attempt against the cage. Forming a
grip to defend, Humphrey used his right leg to kick at Danis’ head and escape,
but Danis responded with repeated hammer fists to his face. Threading his right
leg through Humphrey’s grip, Danis was able to extend the left arm and go belly
down to finish the submission at 4:28 of the round one.

“I’m the best in the world, I said it before and I’ll say it
again,” began Danis in his post fight interview with “Big” John McCarthy. After
calling out the likes of John Jones and Rory McDonald, Danis proceeded to
explain that the switch from back control to an armbar was due to his opponents
supposed desire to stall the fight. “I could just tell he was stalling,” Danis
said. “He wanted to make it to three rounds to day he went three rounds with
the best ever… so I was like ‘You know what? It’s time to finish this guy.’”
