Dillon Danis and KSI will have a chance to settle their differences inside the boxing ring.
Danis, who is still under a Bellator contract, will return from a 43-month hiatus from combat sports competition to take on YouTuber and part-time boxer KSI following their physical altercation ahead of MF & DAZN: X Series 003 in Austin, Texas. The bout was officially announced by the promotion Saturday.
Despite being under contract with Bellator, Danis was granted permission to compete, an official of the promotion told MMA Junkie.
The fight will take place at MF & DAZN: X Series 004 at the OVO Arena, Wembley in London on Jan. 14. The event airs on DAZN pay-per-view.

Danis, 29, is undefeated through two pro MMA bouts, both of which took place under the Bellator banner. He won both fights in the first round, most recently submitting Max Humphrey at Bellator 222 in June 2016.
KSI, 29, has been active inside the boxing ring. In August, he took on two opponents in one night, defeating Brandon Scott and Luis Alcaraz Pineda in a pair of exhibition bouts at MF & DAZN: X Series 001. KSI’s first professional boxing bout was against Logan Paul in November 2019, a contest he won by split decision.
