UFC superstar Conor McGregor‘s teammate, Dillon Danis, is no stranger to controversy. The fighter has been involved in several controversies with other fighters and influencers. His brash personality and willingness to call out everyone in the MMA and boxing space have had serious repercussions. With a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, Danis has competed a few times in the Bellator. However, his main claim to fame comes from his online presence and a public rivalry with YouTubers KSI and Jake Paul.
The very successful UFC 288 event took place on the weekend. Fighters Henry Cejudo and Aljamain Sterling went head to head in the bantamweight division. The popularity of the event prompted huge stars like Don Frye and rapper Action Bronson to be seen in attendance. Another huge star that turned up to the event was ‘Euphoria’ actress Sydney Sweeney. The popular star was seen in attendance cheering on for the fighters at UFC 288.
Controversial personality Dillon Danis decided to take a picture with the ‘Euphoria‘ star. He then uploaded it to his Twitter. The fighter captioned it, “I’d hate me too.” The caption indicated that the fans were jealous of the fighter. However, the tweet gained traction, and fans roasted him in the replies. He was ruthlessly trolled in his own reply section and fans make their own speculations on the photo.
Dillon Danis is known to stir up controversies via his social media platforms and is currently one of the most hated figures in the MMA and UFC community.

The storm of hate comments is not a foreign concept for Danis as he is involved in one every second of the day.
