To this, Dillon Danis said that he would execute locks so swiftly that Ryan Garcia won't know what hit him.
Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh gave his opinion on the same in a Tweet. He wrote,
"[Dillon Danis] could literally coach him [Ryan Garcia] daily between now and the fight on the sequence and how to defend it...and it wouldn't matter. Dillon is a black belt who strangles black belts. It's like someone attempting to learn chess and beat a grandmaster in a month's time."
