Two-time Bellator fighter Dillon Danis will make his return to combat sports in a boxing match against YouTuber KSI.
Danis vs. KSI will feature at Misfits Boxing 4 at the OVO Arena in London on January 14th. The event will be broadcasted as a DAZN pay-per-view.
Danis will return 43 months after his last Bellator fight against Max Humphrey at Bellator 222 in 2019. This will be the first boxing fight of his career after recently getting permission from Bellator to compete, despite still being under contract with the promotion.
Danis has dealt with legal and health issues that have delayed his return to fighting. He was also recently involved in an altercation with former UFC star Nate Diaz outside of Madison Square Garden during UFC 281.
