Watch as Conor McGregor team-mate Dillon Danis gets PUNCHED in the face by Anthony Taylor in CAR PARK | The Sun
MMA fighter Dillon Danis was on the receiving end of a brutal punch outside the latest Misfits Boxing weigh-in.
The Bellator star made his presence felt inside the fighter hotel in Austin, Texas on Friday afternoon – clashing with YouTube superstar KSI.
But a matter of moments after leaving the hotel, he found himself embroiled in a brawl with fellow mixed martial artist Anthony Taylor.
Taylor, a long-time training partner of Jake Paul, hunted down Danis, 29, as he left the hotel and a scuffle quickly ensued.
One of Danis' entourage ignited a mass melee by pushing Taylor – who blew a gasket.
Multiple people tried to hold an irate Taylor back – although they were unsuccessful in stopping the 33-year-old from getting his hands on Danis.

After breaking free from the grip of a man trying to hold him back, Taylor landed a big overhand right flush on the chin of Danis.
Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert Danis was wobbled by the punch and lost his balance.
And he was seemingly kept upright by the back of a parked truck.
The pair were eventually separated and were dragged off in different directions.

Danis – a training partner of UFC superstar Conor McGregor – made light of the incident when quizzed about it.
He told iFL TV: "Nothing [happened]. It was just a little – we're good."
He then claimed to have no knowledge of who Taylor was, saying: "I don't know who that is, to be honest.
"I thought that was a homeless guy in the street."
Danis' scuffle with Taylor came moments after he punched social media star turned boxer KSI.
The back-to-back incidents came a matter of days after Danis and his pals were embroiled in a melee with Nate Diaz.
The scuffle took place outside Madison Square Garden in New York following UFC 281 and saw Diaz slap one of Danis' entourage.
