Dillon Danis needs to stop "living in the shadow" of Conor McGregor ... so says undefeated Bellator star and potential D.D. opponent Neiman Gracie.
Danis -- Conor's training partner and friend (he bailed McGregor outta jail) -- made his pro MMA debut last month ... winning his first fight in under 2 minutes.
After the fight, Dillon gave a Conor McGregor-esque promo in the cage ... calling out the entire roster.
So, who's next for the rising star?
Neiman -- a 4th generation member of the Gracie fam who's 8-0 -- says he is ... if Danis has the balls to fight him.
"I talked to the Bellator guys. They say they're going to offer him the fight."
