Grappling star, Dillon Danis has once more offered to make a long-rumored Octagon landing amid his exit from long-time home, Bellator MMA last year – claiming he would fight with former title challenger, Nick Diaz at UFC 303 next month, alongside his close friend, Conor McGregor.

Danis, a former feature under the banner of Bellator MMA, had competed twice under the promotion’s scrutiny with a pair of back-to-back submission wins over Kyle Walker and Max Humphey, landing his sole two professional mixed martial arts victories.

And a needling grappler to boot, Danis, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under the tutelage of Marcelo Garcia, suffered a professional boxing debut loss to the polarizing WWE star, Logan Paul back in October of last year, in the form of a disqualification defeat in the pair’s heated grudge fight.
