“Next time I see Ariel Helwani.” Dillon Danis captioned the video.
Helwani was quick to respond to Danis’ tweet, and when he did, he connected with a serious low blow on the Bellator fighter.
You connecting with a punch let alone dropping someone? Well, I guess there really could be a first time for everything

“You connecting with a punch let alone dropping someone? Well, I guess there really could be a first time for everything.” Helwani responded.
Dillon Danis has gone a perfect 2-0 since making his mixed martial arts debut under the Bellator banner in April of 2018.
During that stretch, ‘El Jefe’ has scored first round submission victories over opponents Kyle Walker and Max Humphrey.
While Dillon Danis is unquestionably a superb grappler, his standup game still leaves much to be desired, as noted by Helwani.
With that said, the Bellator standout has been working his striking with good friend and teammate Conor McGregor in recent months, meaning his standup skills are likely evolving.
Danis would later take to Twitter where he asked fight fans who they would like to see him scrap next.

“When I come back who should I fight first?” Danis questioned.
Bellator has currently postponed all of their future events due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When the organizations fight schedule will resume remains unknown at this time.
