MMA star Dillon Danis pays for bullied teen’s martial arts lessons after sharing shock viral video


MMA star Dillon Danis has paid for a bullied teen’s martial arts lessons.

The youth’s troubles came to light in a shock viral video which was shared by Danis, who is Conor McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach.

The footage reportedly showed the teen being attacked at his school in Baltimore, USA.

Danis shared the video in the hope of discovering the 14-year-old’s name.

He said: “These videos break my heart, nobody should have to go through this.

“If anyone knows how to contact him I wanna get him into martial arts immediately.”

Danis managed to track the kid down, and sent him a message saying: “[I will] pay for a membership to the closest jiu jitsu gym nearest to you if you are interested.”

The kid indicated he was, and Danis added: “That video broke my heart man.

“Sorry you had to go through this but I got your back, let’s do this.”

John Kavanagh, McGregor’s main coach, responded to the good will on social media.

He said: “Shhh people gonna realise you’re a great guy. Thanks for taking care of the next generation.”
