UFC welterweight Tom Breese recently called out Dillon Danis, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu coach of UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor, over his recent comments towards Jon Jones.
Dillon Danis should have a MMA fight with Jon Jones then instead of trying to hide behind a Grappling rule set ? https://t.co/U235nGlRiK

Danis has recently called out the former UFC light heavyweight champion and has challenged him to a grappling match.
While serving a suspension from both the state of Nevada and USADA, Jones has been competing in BJJ for Submission Underground, a grappling promotion where Dannis also competes.
On Thursday, Breese called out Danis via Twitter. “Dillon Danis should have a MMA fight with Jon Jones then instead of trying to hide being a Grappling rule set,” Breese tweeted.
However, Danis may be interested in fighting in MMA someday. He recently told FOX Sports, he believes he can become a huge star in the sport.
“I’ve been saying this since day one, there’s no one like me. There’s no jiu-jitsu guy that talks and competes well and goes out there and takes people out,” Danis said. “That’s why I keep saying when I get into MMA, I might change the game and I feel like I will. I’m starting to do it in jiu-jitsu. I’ve always been this way, even before what happened with Conor (McGregor). I’ve always been myself.
“One day in MMA, I’m going to change everything people could see from a jiu-jitsu fighter.”
Breese is coming off the first loss of his MMA career. In June, at UFC 199, he lost a split decision to Sean Strickland. Prior to the loss, Breese had 10 victories with his last three taking place in the UFC.
