UFC 235, which went down on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada, was a huge night for the welterweight division. First, we saw former ONE and Bellator champ Ben Askren make a successful — if controversial — UFC debut by submitting former UFC champ Robbie Lawler. Then, we saw Kamaru Usman shock the world by dominating long-time UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman to a lopsided unanimous decision triumph.
While Ben Askren and Kamaru Usman impressed many onlookers with their UFC 235 performances, notoriously outspoken Bellator star Dillon Danis didn’t seem to like what he saw. In fact, he believes he’d defeat both fighters based on their performances in Vegas.
Danis first took aim at Askren, assuring that he’d submit the former Olympic wrestler in 20 seconds.
“i would sub Ben Askren in 20 seconds…” Danis wrote on Twitter.
Shortly thereafter, he took a shot at Kamaru Usman, who he believes fought like a “b***h.” He says he will “end” the new welterweight champion one day.
“What a bitch kamaru you will see one day mate i will end you,” Danis wrote.
Needless to say, Dillon Danis was not impressed by either of the UFC 235 card’s big welterweight winners.
Danis, who is a key training partner of former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor, last fought in 2018, when he made a successful MMA debut by submitting Kyle Walker under the Bellator banner. Prior to this debut, Danis achieved great heights on the competitive grappling circuit.
