The first of many videos that the “Golden Arms” narrates was just released and features Brooklyn’s Dillon Danis, a world champion jiu-jitsu artist who has gained notoriety as jiu-jitsu coach and close friend to Conor McGregor. Danis fights Max Humphrey this Friday at the event that airs on DAZN.

Bellator 222 headline matches included, Lyoto Machida (25-8 MMA) facing  Chael Sonnen (30-16-1), while Rory MacDonald (20-5-1 MMA) will face Neiman Gracie (9-0 MMA). At Bellator 222, the promotion will conclude the semi-finals of its Welterweight World Grand Prix. Initially considered a front-runner to win the tournament, current champion Rory MacDonald has had a rough go of it lately.

Adding U-God’s vocals and rhythms to the storylines is a much-needed boost for the MMA company, that is always looking to make a mark in the business. With U-God expected in the Garden, who knows what ruckus he will bring.

Bellator 222 prelims start at 6:30 p.m. The main card starts at 10 p.m. Both will be streaming exclusively on DAZN.
