    I heard through the grapevine that Marcelo couldn't really stand Danis (avoided him like the plague). Not sure what happened, but guess it reached the breaking point. Sucks for both parties

    I'm sure there's things behind the scenes we won't be privy to.

    looking up, as my redemption draweth nigh ...
    just saw this on bjjheroes, always struck me as odd how brash danis could be and that he came out of marcelos camp

    I'm not sure if this has anything to do but he was on live tv (danis) an was called out hard about being fake and phoney and Marcelo's name used in reference and how dillon is bring shame to Marcelo's name (paraphrasing).

    Dillon is such a wannabe

    If one of the nicest guys in BJJ wants a time off of you, something is wrong with you

    2 things:

    Dannis going to Belator and calling all these MMA fighters out. And, being McGregors coach and acting like GOAT grappler.

    Oh, and if Gordon Ryan was his student, he probably would have been kicked out as well, lol.

    Well, Dillon is just trying to make money much like Gordon Ryan is. Can you really hold that against them?

    It was an interesting speech.
    There is obviously some vibes emitting from those 2 that are affected the gym.
    Mg cannot be in the gym all the time and expect his bb to be the same role model as him to the younger and most impressionable students

    End of the story.

    He's not talking about Dillon trying to make money. He's talking about creating problems in the gym, especially when Marcelo is not there.
    He's trying to keep his gym, instructors, and reputation in check. Can you really hold that against him?

    No one can fault Dillion for this one. Munch was the villian in this case. Some guys just don't know how to act when women are around.

    well that's convenient. as long as you're trying to make money, you can be an asshole and won't be judged for it?

    truth is, we have no idea why marcelo has a problem with him. it could literally be anything. but considering there's no one in the business who has anything negative to say about garcia, and the image dillon has been trying to create for himself, i'd say danis isn't going to get much love from the bjj community from now on.

    Fair play to Marcelo. Rare that someone has the integrity to put morals above money

    Marcelo is an amazing dude. When it comes to his students and academy, he is very serious and professional.

    I'm sure his severe actions were not (just) because of silly social media stuff. Rather, more serious things that directly affected the academy and people in it (which Marcelo views as his home- as he stated multiple times in the video).
