Watch Dillon Danis and Anthony Taylor Brawl Video: After punching Dillon Danis with a MMA boxer , Anthony Taylor became the headlines following Friday’s Misfits Boxing x DAZN series 003 weigh ins in Austin, Texas.

Taylor spoke with MMA Fighting about why he decided to confront Danis. He also revealed that Danis was not only playing with social media and influencer boxes, but also with reporters covering the event.
Taylor said that Dillon Danis was just coming in and was being a bully. He picks on reporters and acts tough with his MMA friends or whoever the hell he is with. He was acting tough, acting like he couldn’t be touched, because he’s the jiu jitsu champion and nobody’s going fight him.
After Danis asked if he would like to be choked out, KSI assured Danis that he could take out the jiu jitsu specialist. Danis threw a soft left hand at KSI, causing chaos to ensue. He could be heard saying, “Do it now!”
Although it is rare for something like this to happen once, it is not uncommon for it to happen again within a short time. Anthony Taylor, a former Bellator fighter and now a boxer attacked Danis in footage taken by IFL TV at the weigh-in. Taylor eventually got past the men who were holding him back, and punched Danis in the face. This started another altercation.
