It was well known that Conor McGregor brought in the Brazilian jiu-jitsu phenom Dillon Danis for his camp in preparation for the rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202.
However, things seem to have gotten a bit more personal as things got heated between the two opposing teams.
Diaz commented on Danis in the UFC 202 post-fight press conference (at 10:37 of the video).
“That jiu-jitsu coach he’s got, you know I’m going to get that motherf—-er man,” Diaz said. “That guy is on my hit list. This is America and he is over there representing with them?
“And then he wants to load up at a press conference like he’s hard. That’s the reason that the fools got rushed at the press conference too is because they rolled up all making a scene like, ‘We’re the hardest shit in town.’ ”
During the UFC 202 press conference that was shut down early after various objects were thrown from across the room at the opposing sides, you can clearly see Danis attempting to make his way up to Team Diaz in this video shot from the crowd.
