The Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt has been released from his Bellator MMA contract. Multiple outlets confirmed the news following an initial report from Ariel Helwani.

The 30-year-old competed under the Bellator banner just twice, earning first-round submission victories on both occasions. He last competed on June 14, 2019, when he tapped out Max Humphrey with an armbar at Bellator 222. Injuries prevented Danis from fighting again within the California-based promotion.

More recently, “El Jefe” faced Logan Paul at a Misfits Boxing event on Oct. 6. Danis was disqualified at the 2:55 mark of Round 6 when he attempted a takedown and guillotine choke on his opponent.

Danis received plenty of attention at the beginning of his foray into MMA thanks in large part to his outspoken persona and his association with former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor. Now Danis hopes to join the Irish star in the UFC.

“I want to go the UFC. I think the UFC now will see my potential in selling fights and everything like that,” Danis said in a recent interview on Piers Morgan Uncensored.

“Sign me. Let’s do it. Give me the biggest fight, give me anybody you want. Just don’t send anybody you want back. I’ll beat them all. And I want to prove what I’m saying is true, because it pissed me off that people don’t believe in me. So I want to go out there and I’ll fight any one of them.”
