The controversial fighter Dillon Danis recently visited New York to witness the premiere of Road House. It featured the MMA superstar Conor McGregor, who was Danis’ longtime training partner. As such, he made it to the premiere at the Lincoln Center. Surprisingly, he revealed having an upcoming bout at the premiere.

Dillon Danis, in a conversation with Robbie Fox from Barstool Sports, made a shocking revelation. Danis declared his intention to return to MMA. He last fought in MMA almost five years ago. Further, Danis disclosed his opponent was a UFC Hall of Famer and a former champion. Here is what Danis claimed:

This news has made the fight fans guessing about his opponent. However, many didn’t believe him in the first place, given his reputation to bluff. Nonetheless, his MMA skills were never in question as the fighter had a credible Jiu-Jitsu background. He is a BJJ black belt. As such, he served Conor McGregor as a BJJ instructor and cornerman in his early days. To this day, they have supported each other in their quests. Danis’ visit to the premiere of Road House proved it.

Dillon Danis last fought Logan Paul in a heated boxing bout. He lost the fight via disqualification after continuous misconduct inside the ring. Before his boxing stint, he fought at Bellator in 2019 and earned a couple of wins. As such, he is now aiming for an MMA return. However, Danis didn’t mention any other details about it, including which promotion he would fight.

How did Dillon Danis perform in his last MMA fight

Dillon Danis made his MMA debut against Kyle Walker at Bellator 198 and snatched a quick submission victory within the first two minutes of the fight. As such, he made his second outing at the promotion against Max Humphrey at Bellator 222. While this fight went longer than his first fight, ‘El Jefe’ finished it inside round one.

As soon as the fight started, Dillon Danis didn’t waste any time taking down Max Humphrey. Once it hit the ground, the BJJ black belt took control. Danis poured down ground strikes and took Humphrey’s back. With Danis blasting hammer fists and punches, the referee repeatedly warned Humprey to defend. As such, after defending the strikes, Danis forced him to defend an RNC. Finally, at the last minute of the bout, Danis transitioned to an armbar to seal the deal.

With this win, Dillon Danis earned two wins in MMA. However, he didn’t continue on this career path for various reasons. He found fame due to his relationship with Conor McGregor. Also, his polarising personality and controversial tweets made him blow up. The MMA community might have a vested interest in Danis’s next opponent.
