“Choked u unconscious when u was screaming”, Dillon Danis and Paddy Pimblett bicker on Twitter

Paddy Pimblett and Dillon Danis have been feuding on social media ever since Dillon issued a challenge to the Brit.

Dillon Danis reportedly sought to provoke prominent UFC fighter Paddy Pimblett into a grappling match, but the Brit not only refused him but even mocked Dillon.

Danis suggested that the two put money into an escrow account and in a winner-take-all scenario would fight against each other, tweeting the offer along with a photo of a pile of money. He tweets, “How about we both put up 75k each in escrow and do a grappling match winner takes all, you in?”

Paddy Pimblett, who as predicted, was quick to respond and mocked Danis for his offer, as well as his affiliation with Conor McGregor. “Why are you getting Conor to send you pictures of his money you silly sausage? Stop embarrassing yourself! Why would I grapple with you? I’ll punch your f***ing head in for you if I see you, you soft c***.”

“Can’t knock out a scouser”, Dillon Danis mocks Paddy Pimblett’s past loss

Dillon appears to have taken Paddy’s tweet in which he refers to him as a silly sausage seriously. He attempts to be funny by sharing an old photograph of Paddy Pimblett’s first defeat, tweeting, “Can’t knock out a scouser @theufcbaddy.” (It was  Cameron Else who gave Pimblett his first professional defeat).

Paddy, on the other hand, was quick on his feet and ready with a counter-punch. He describes how he finds it amusing that Dillon resorted to criticising an 18-year-old Pimblett’s defeat after being strangled unconscious by a non-fighter and even shares a video of that encounter. 

He tweets, “Yer man my first pro loss when I was 18 bro didn’t tap went to sleep like a warrior but 1 quick question, how can u say ur one of ur best grapplers in the world when someone whos not even a pro fighter choked u unconscious when u was screaming“do u know who I am” @dillondanis.”

This video shows Danis being arrested and charged with disorderly conduct following an argument at a New Jersey pub, showing him being choked out by a security officer.

It seems highly unlikely that any grappling match would take place with Danis having messed with several other high-profile and while things are going good for the lifelong Liverpool supporter, the same cannot be said for the man who has called him out on social media. During his time away from the gym, it seems like trouble seems to follow Dillon.  It is presently unknown when or if Danis will return to MMA.
