Michael Chandler has no regrets about criticizing the MMA debut of Dillon Danis at Bellator 198.

Following Danis’ (1-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) first-round submission win over Kyle Walker at Bellator 198 this past month, Chandler (18-4 MMA, 15-4 BMMA) ripped the outspoken grappling champion. He called Danis the “most unathletic fighter in Bellator” and labeled his performance as cringeworthy (via Twitter):

Just catching up to #bellator198 @dillondanis said he was the “highest paid fighter in @BellatorMMA” but I think he meant to say “most un-athletic fighter in Bellator” and that was against a man with a losing record. #cringe #slow #sloth #bellator198

Danis, who is a friend and training partner of former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), has piggybacked off “The Notorious” in nearly every department, and that includes saying almost anything to get his fellow fighters riled up.

Although Chandler has already established much success in MMA and is currently the an honorable mention in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA lightweight rankings, he felt compelled to take a shot at the debuting Danis after Bellator 198. He explained why during an interview today on Joe Rogan’s “JRE MMA Show” podcast.

“I don’t think he looked very good,” Chandler told Rogan. “It was all right. He went in there, got a nice little transition. He looked like a fish out of water on the feet, which of course it’s his first MMA fight. Do I respect the win, do I respect what he did in BJJ? It’s cool, but it’s mixed martial arts. It’s funny how much he’s being called out for being just a wannabe Conor with the exact same stuff. He’s doing a good job with it, but he also said he’s the highest paid fighter in Bellator and silly stuff.”

With Chandler currently competing at 155 pounds and Danis looking to establish himself as a welterweight, the odds of the two trading anything more than verbal blows seems unlikely. Still, Chandler isn’t hesitant to take shots at a fighter who could be one of the Bellator’s next stars on the rise.

“He’s a dork, man,” Chandler said. “Huge dork.”
