Nate Diaz made it clear that he doesn’t care for Dillon Danis, following UFC 202, and the jiu-jitsu competitor says he’s willing to fight the Stockton fighter.

During Diaz’s post-fight press conference, he relayed that Danis is on his “hit list”, and accused the Marcelo Garcia black belt of acting “hard”. Danis was brought in by Conor McGregor to help him prepare for his rematch with Diaz. McGregor won the UFC 202 headliner by majority decision.

Danis appeared on the latest “MMA Hour” on Monday, and when asked about Diaz’s comments, he stated (quote via Bloody Elbow.com):

“I don’t know what that means, I’m on his hit list. But if he wants to do MMA, I’ll fight him in MMA if he wants,” Danis said. “He can do a CM Punk with me and bring me into the UFC. He can be my first fight. I’ll fight him in a couple months, whatever he wants to do.”

The 23 year-old also said that he’s willing to meet Diaz in “any kind of combat”.
