Dillon Danis, a training partner of Conor McGregor, will face Gracie Barra black belt AJ Agazarm at FloGrappling.com’s Submission Underground 3.
The news was first reported by MMAFighting.com senior editor Luke Thomas, who confirmed the match-up with numerous sources (though incorrectly stated that Danis was McGregor’s BJJ coach).

Danis, who had been pushing for a match with former UFC champion Jon Jones at the event, will instead face off with the Floridian wrestler and BJJ black belt — a multiple time World and Pan-Am champion.
Dillon Danis earned his black belt under the tutelage of the renowned Marcelo Garcia and is also a multiple time world champion, and won double gold at the IBJJF No-Gi Pan-Am last October in the medium heavyweight and absolute divisions.
Submission Underground 3 takes place on January 29th in Portland, Oregon and will be broadcast on FloGrappling.com.
