Dillon Danis attack – “It was vicious”
“I was scared. It was vicious.
“Dillon was just sitting down relaxing and that shirtless guy with the yellow garland just attacked him.”
All things considered, Danis does not appear to be seriously injured, and security broke up the fight quickly. According to the witness Danis made his way outside of the club.
“Security rushed in”
“But I’m an UFC fan and I knew that was Dillon Danis, so when I saw things were starting to get aggressive I pulled out my phone real quick, then I ran right out of there.
“All the security rushed in and loads of people, including Dillon, ran outside with me.
“The fight happened right before the show was about to start, I missed the show because of it, I didn’t want to go back in there after that.
“I didn’t hang around to see if the cops got called, I wanted to get as far away from there as possible.”
Danis is coming off of his second straight win in MMA; after tapping out Max Humphry. He does not have another fight booked as of the time of this article.
