It was another banner day for Bellator fighter Dillon Danis as he got into a pair of scuffles on Friday during the Misfits Boxing weigh-ins.
During the weigh-ins, Danis and boxer KSI — who is also serving as a promoter for Saturday’s event on DAZN — went face-to-face and began chirping at one another. After Danis asked if he wanted to get choked out, KSI responded by saying he could knock out the jiu-jitsu specialist. Danis responded by saying, “Do it right now,” before throwing a soft left hand to the face of KSI and all hell broke loose.

While it’s rare for something like that to happen once, for it to happen a second time in a short span of time is nearly unheard of. In another video captured by IFL TV, former Bellator fighter turned boxer Anthony Taylor confronted Danis outside of the weigh-in venue. Eventually, Taylor broke through the group of people holding him back and punched Danis right in the face, and another skirmish broke out.
Danis is 2-0 with two submissions as a Bellator fighter, but hasn’t competed inside the cage in over three years.
