Dan Ige won the “Performance of the Night” bonus for his 22 second knockout against Gavin Tucker at UFC Fight Night 187, and after this impressive victory, he is now aiming at the top layer of the featherweight division.

After the fight, he called out The Korean Zombie and TKZ is yet to reply, in an interview with MMA Junkie he said, “I’ve kinda let just let the fans and the media create some buzz around it. I’m no matchmaker, but it definitely makes sense.”

“Zombie, he’s in the top-five echelon and obviously I’m aiming towards the title and, in order to get to the title, I gotta beat guys in that top five. But Dana said, I’ll say it, I’m a guy that’ll fight anyone. I don’t shy away from any challenge.”

“I took on Gavin Tucker, who was a big risk for me and he didn’t have a number next to his name, but I’m not moaning or groaning or complaining about it. I love a challenge, so I think the Zombie fight makes a lot of sense. He’s a guy that comes in, he’s literally a zombie. If you look at my style, you can call me a zombie as well. I’ve never been finished, I can take a shot if I need to, and I always come forward, so that’s just a sick fight.”
