Dillon Danis continues to troll the MMA community, and this time he’s using Francis Ngannou’s name to stir the pot.
Danis is known to ruffle some feathers online. As of late, he’s been trying to get under the skin of Logan Paul, who he will be facing in a boxing match on October 14. Danis says he received a cease and desist letter over constantly posting images of Paul’s fiancé with other men. The letter has not stopped Danis from posting more photos.

Dillon Danis Claims Francis Ngannou Pulled Out Of Supposed Fight
During an episode of the “Full Send Podcast,” Dillon Danis once again decided to get people buzzing. This time, he made an outlandish claim, saying that he was initially going to fight Francis Ngannou.
“I wanted the Francis fight, he pulled out too,” Danis said. “Yeah, I swear.”
Danis’ chances against “The Predator” were challenged during the podcast. He also responded to the notion that Ngannou would pounce on him if he was in Danis’ guard.
“He wouldn’t even know what to do,” Danis said. “He walked in like two jiu-jitsu classes his whole life.”
Even Danis’ trolling has its limits, however. The BJJ practitioner admitted that a boxing match against Ngannou probably wouldn’t have a good outcome for him.
“In an MMA fight, not a boxing fight,” Danis said.
Danis has developed a reputation of talking far more than fighting. It’s gotten to the point where many have viewed him as a social media influencer rather than a true mixed martial artist. Danis insists that the naysayers are wrong and he claims he’ll fight anyone.
“Sign me up,” Danis said. “I’ll fight any of these guys. If I go to the UFC, give me Islam [Makhachev] first fight. I don’t give a sh*t.”
The clip, which you can see below, ends with Danis questioning why UFC Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones blocked him on Twitter.
