Dillon Danis aims to complete “unfinished business” against Islam Makhachev to avenge Conor McGregor’s loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov

Dillon Danis is renowned for his gift of gab. Following his boxing match against Logan Paul, he has expressed a keen interest in returning to MMA. He also stated his desire to become a part of the UFC and compete there.

Islam recently won his match at UFC 294. Islam was a student of Khabib’s late father, and Khabib also served as his mentor. As a result, he now aims to avenge his close friend Conor’s loss to Khabib by defeating Islam. This added motivation has further fueled Dillon’s desire to join the UFC.

Dillon Danis calls out Islam Makhachev

Islam put on a very dominant performance at the UFC 294 event. He stopped Alex Volkanovski in the first round of the fight, even though Alex had only 10 days to prepare, Islam was in complete control from the start to the end.

Dillon has also been keen on getting back to MMA. He was a Bellator fighter and now that Bellator has been bought by PFL, he said he would stay only if he got to fight Jake Paul or he would leave to go to the UFC.

Dillon had called out a lot of fighters in the 170 pound weight division in the UFC. After Islam’s recent win, Dillon did not wait any longer and called him out to avenge his best friend Connor who lost to Khabib five years ago.

It would be interesting to see how Dillon makes his way in the UFC, given that he has been out of the octagon for over four years now. Fighting Islam would not be the best move for Dillon as he is just getting back to MMA and Islam is at his peak right now.

Dillon Danis rumored to join UFC

Dillon has returned to fighting, not in MMA but the fighter did have a boxing bout against Logan Paul on the Misfits Prime card. Despite a humiliating loss that night, he continued to engage in online banter. One of his ongoing topics of discussion is his aspiration to compete in the UFC.

His primary current objective is to secure a fight in the UFC. He may have a chance to secure a contract with the renowned fighting organization, as he is friends with Conor, who has a close relationship with Dana White, the UFC’s CEO. He has set his sights on the 170-pound weight division, and it would be intriguing to witness the four-time world Jujutsu champion compete in the UFC.
