As reported by MMAMotion earlier in the week, Dillon Danis is set to make is MMA debut at Bellator 198 and will be training with Coach John Kavanagh at SBG, Dublin. Now, the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu star has had his opponent confirmed.
24-year-old Danis will face fellow Bellator debutant, Kyle Walker in a 175lb catchweight fight.
Walker holds a record of 2-3-0 and will make his Bellator bow looking to snap a two fight losing streak. Interestingly for Danis, both of Walker’s recent losses came via first round submissions before the fights had reached the 2 minute mark.
Bellator 198 will take place on April 28th and will be headlined by a battle of two heavyweight veterans as Fedor Emelianenko faces Frank Mir.
