According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports, Bellator MMA and Conor McGregor's jiu-jitsu trainer, Dillon Danis is seemingly barred from cornering 'The Notorious One' in his upcoming UFC 246 fight against Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone due to him not clearing the $7,500 fine he received for his brawl against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
