Gordon Ryan laughs at Dillon Danis’s absurdity in dropping out of another fight. “You’re just an idiot,” he says.


Gordon Ryan has no problem calling his shot, especially whenever former rival Dillon Danis is concerned.

After sarcastically calling him “an absolute master” at finding a way to stay in the spotlight despite not actually competing in any combat sport in nearly four years, the 27-year-old grappling champion couldn’t help but laugh at the latest incident involving the always-outspoken Danis.

Almost exactly two weeks after Ryan made his comments, Danis dropped out of his most recently planned fight after he signed on for a boxing match against social influencer turned fighter KSI. While Danis later stated “the truth will shock everyone,” he’s yet to actually address his removal from the bout, much less offered any explanation about why he didn’t end up fighting KSI.

“That was just amazing,” Ryan told MMA Fighting. His manager came out to say that he wasn’t training, and that he could not lose weight. It’s like dude, at least lie and say he hurt his ribs and can’t compete. You don’t have to be like “He’s lazy, he’s not capable .’


” I knew that it would happen. Dillon is an example of someone who just takes in all the attention for what he plans to do and then pulls out at the very last moment. He gives the promotion enough time to find a replacement so they want to work with him again.”

In the wake of Danis’ fight against KSI being cancelled by Bellator, Scott Coker, president of Bellator, stated that he was still open to Danis returning to the MMA promotion, where he is under contract, but could not help but ask, “Does he really want to fight ?”


Ryan doesn’t think Danis will fight again. He continues to get attention on social media, but never sets foot in any ring, cage or mat for grappling, mixed martial arts or boxing.

Maybe this is Danis’ grand scheme, even though Ryan doesn’t know how he manages to keep his finances in order without working a single day.

“He gets the publicity and he doesn’t actually have to do anything,” Ryan said. “He doesn’t actually have to compete. His deal I do not know. He must have some sort of inheritance because he doesn’t teach, he’s not sponsored by anybody, he hasn’t posted anything on his social media. He doesn’t compete. There’s no way he can possibly make money unless he has a job at Walmart that we don’t know about.

“He must just be living off his family’s money or something and just hanging out. He did a great job at building his initial brand, but if you’re going to talk s*** and you don’t compete and you don’t win, then you’re just a clown, in my opinion.”

Ryan openly confesses to enjoying trash-talking and arguing with his opponent. He says Danis has always had something to share, but never takes the time to follow it up with action.

That’s ultimately Ryan’s biggest gripe, because Danis loves telling the world what he’s going to do but since 2019, but he hasn’t actually done anything.

“Nobody realizes that the hard part is speaking s ***,” Ryan. The hard part is winning and competing. You can talk s ***. if he could. But Dillon does the opposite. Dillon talks trash and doesn’t even try .”
