Most Promising Black Belt of the Year: Dillon Danis

Few black belt's stock has risen faster in 2016 than that of Dillon Danis. Trained by Marcelo Garcia (one of the GOAT jiu-jitsu competitors) and a training partner and friend of UFC superstar Conor McGregor, Danis is a badass black belt with legions of fans. 

He is a submission hunter with an all-out style of attack. Danis has solid wrestling, great passing and a dangerous guard. He dives on submissions from every angle. He talks the talk and walks the walk. 

At times enigmatic but always intriguing, Dillon Danis's social media is a look into a crazy life. When not riding with Conor he's hanging out with J-Lo, basketball players, celebrity chefs or rock stars. 

Fans believe there is more to Danis than just hype, which is why you chose him as the Most Promising Black Belt of 2016.
