Dillon Danis reveals UFC wishlist for future fights
Dillon Danis has his sights set on some of the UFC's biggest stars following his fight with Logan Paul in Manchester on October 14, live on DAZN.
This upcoming clash with Paul will be Danis' professional boxing debut on the undercard of KSI vs. Tommy Fury, but the 30-year-old is eager to return to the world of MMA.
Danis was a promising prospect in mixed martial arts before a knee injury derailed his career and now he is looking to make up for lost time.
The first UFC star to be called out by Danis was former heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou and he was quick to criticise the 37-year-old's fighting style inside the cage.
"You know I would beat Francis. I’ll pull guard so easy. Dude, he’s terrible,” Danis told The MMA Hour.
"Listen, I’m getting older in age – I want to go tap f—g Islam [Makhachev] I want to go beat these guys.
“It’s now or never, I just turned 30, I’m willing to go and f—g go out there and see if what I’m saying is [true].
“If I go to the UFC give me your toughest fight, give me Ian Garry, give me anybody, give me Neil Magny. 170lb, anybody, Leon Edwards would be the easiest fight. I actually like Colby [Covington] but yeah Colby.”
