Dan Ige finally secured a crushing victory over Damon Jackson after suffering losses in his previous three fights.
Dan squared off against Damon Jackson in the fight that served as the co-main event at UFC Vegas 67. Since the beginning, Dan has put on a spectacular show, and Damon has been unable to find an adequate response to Dan’s powerful punches.
“50K” made his debut in the UFC in 2017 against Luis Gomez, and he came out on top to win his very first fight for the promotion. Dan went on to have a fantastic run despite his loss to Julio Arce.

In a subsequent couple of years of Dan’s UFC career, he competed in six bouts and won every single one of them. He was victorious over Mirsad Bektic, Mike Santiago, Jordan Griffin, Danny Henry, Kevin Aguilar, and Edson Barboza.
His incredible run, however, came to an end on July 15, 2020, when he was defeated by Calvin Kattar. In spite of the fact that he beat Gavin Tucker in 2021, which put him back on the path to victory, he went on to lose his next three fights to Chan Sung Jung, Josh Emmett, and Movsar Evloev.
The current form of the American mixed martial arts fighter on the octagon has not been so good; consequently, it was an absolute relief for Dan to defeat Damon and to do so with utter dominance. During his post-fight interview, his joy at finally being able to let go of the pressure was crystal clear.
“It feels really good. It’s been almost two years without a win. I dedicate my entire life to this sport. It’s just being in the moment. I’ve just been training myself, training my mind, and valuing the things around me. I cut out the noise.” said Ige.
Now confident in his abilities, Dan is eagerly anticipating his next fight and hopes to continue his streak of victories.
