Dillon Danis: ‘I’ll Fight Nate Diaz In MMA’ is the 22-year old black belt’s response to Nate Diaz’s challenge made in a post-fight press conference. Diaz is extremely angry because Dillon trained Irish fighter Conor McGregor. Diaz also put Danis on his “hit list” and says Danis should only train American fighters. During his rant, Diaz went further and challenged the inexperienced Danis to a MMA bout.
In a recent MMA Hour interview, Dillon said that he is open to fighting Diaz anytime. He also said he was puzzled by Diaz putting him on his “hit list” but is willing to fight whenever and wherever Diaz wants to fight. Danis admitted that he once had respect for Diaz, but now that he has been called out by Diaz that is no longer the case. Danis has never competed in a MMA fight, but says he is ready to face Diaz.
