Dillon Danis Can’t Corner Conor McGregor At UFC 246 Unless He Pays Fine

Dillon Danis will not be in Conor McGregor‘s corner at UFC 246 unless he pays a fine.

On Jan. 18, McGregor will clash with Donald Cerrone. The welterweight tilt is set to headline UFC 246. McGregor vs. “Cowboy” will be held inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Danis Won’t Corner McGregor Unless He Antes Up

Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole was told by NSAC executive director, Bob Bennett, that Danis still hasn’t paid a $7,500 fine for his role in the UFC 229 brawl back in Oct. 2018. Unless he pays the fine, he won’t be able to work as McGregor’s cornerman.

“According to Bob Bennett, @dillondanis owes state of Nevada, NOT the athletic commission, $7,500 from his punishment in the #McGregorKhabib brawl at #UFC229. He will not be allowed to work @TheNotoriousMMA’s corner at #UFC246 until he pays the fine.”
