New footage has surfaced of Bellator fighter Dillon Danis being choked by security prior to his arrest in New Jersey.
On Monday afternoon a video surfaced on social media (see that here) showing ‘El Jefe’ struggling with police officers before eventually being handcuffed and taken into custody.
The incident occurred outside of an establishment believed to be the Beachcomber Bar and Grill in Seaside Heights, New Jersey
Shortly after news of his detainment was shared online, Dillon Danis took to Twitter where he shared the following message.

Danis has not competed since June of 2019 where he scored a first round submission victory over Max Humphrey. ‘El Jefe’ was at one point doing his best to secure a boxing match with Jake Paul, however that fight seems unlikely given the YouTuber’s recent success.
Dillon Danis (2-0 MMA) was most recently scheduled to compete at Bellator 238 in January of 2020. Unfortunately, a knee injury suffered in training forced the self described “icon” to withdraw from the event.
In addition to his grappling prowess, Dillon Danis is perhaps best known as being the jiu-jitsu coach and close friend of UFC superstar Conor McGregor. His aforementioned knee injury actually occurred while helping the Irishman prepare for his UFC 246 showdown with Donald Cerrone.
