Reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, renowned for his devastating power punches, is widely-considered one of the scariest fighters to ever compete in mixed martial arts (MMA).

But to undefeated Bellator MMA combatant Dillon Danis, he’s just another chump.

“I can survive his punch, because I’m very good at weathering the storm,” Danis told Flagrant2 (via Low Kick). “He’s the kind of guy, he’s like a one-pump chump. In a street fight to the death, where someone’s gonna die, I’ll beat him. Jiu-jitsu? Come on, that’s like a joke. In a Jiu-jitsu matchup right now, even drunk I’ll fuck him up. Come on, he’s terrible on the ground.”

I would love to see the Sportsbooks lay odds on Danis surviving this punch.

Ngannou (16-3) has won five straight, all by way of knockout, and is expected to return to the cage for his next title defense in early summer. As for Danis (2-0), he’s been out of action since June 2019 dealing with an injured knee.

Hey Triller ... can we make this fight happen?
