The impetus for this public declaration finds its origin in the recent news that Misfits Boxing, the organization that orchestrated the much-talked-about match between Jake Paul and Dillon Danis, is contemplating a groundbreaking expansion of their event offerings.
The rumored plan on the table is nothing short of revolutionary – the inclusion of MMA bouts alongside their traditional boxing events. This audacious shift in focus has not eluded the sharp-eyed Danis. The moment Dillon Danis caught wind of Misfits Boxing's intentions to step into the realm of mixed martial arts, he didn't waste any time seizing the opportunity to make his stance known.
The renowned MMA fighter wasted no time in issuing a bold challenge to his potential opponent, none other than Nate Diaz himself. In Danis' eyes, a prospective showdown between him and Diaz would not only be a high-stakes battle but also an "easy payday" for him, confidently proclaiming his ability to outshine the Stockton native in the MMA arena.
Dillon Danis is hungry for more action, and the prospect of transitioning from boxing to MMA
It's worth noting that Danis recently made waves in the world of combat sports when he laced up the gloves for a boxing match against social media sensation Logan Paul.
This electrifying showdown unfolded at the Manchester Arena in England on the night of October 14, headlining the event known as Misfits X DAZN: The Prime Card. What unfolded in the ring was nothing short of a spectacle. The fight culminated in a surprising twist as Danis attempted to secure a guillotine choke on his adversary, leading to Logan Paul's disqualification and Danis' subsequent declaration of victory.
With his recent boxing match still fresh in the memory of fight enthusiasts, it's clear that Dillon Danis is hungry for more action, and the prospect of transitioning from boxing to MMA against someone of Nate Diaz's caliber seems to be an enticing challenge for the rising MMA star.
This bold move by Misfits Boxing has set the stage for a potential clash that has the combat sports world abuzz, eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this unfolding drama.
