Dillon Danis is getting ready to continue his mixed martial arts journey.
The jiu-jitsu elite is set to meet Kegan Gennrich (2-1) in a 175-pound catchweight bout on January 25 at Bellator 238 on the undercard of Cris Cyborg vs. Julia Budd. Bellator president Scott Coker announced the contest earlier today.

Danis was last seen competing in June, where a first-round victory made it two straight submission wins in MMA. Opponent Gennrich will be making his first appearance for Bellator when he meets Danis next month.
Bellator 238 marks Cyborg’s promotional debut, and her first contest since a falling out with UFC president Dana White and an end to her UFC journey. It also sees Sergio Pettis on the card — his first outing since his own exit from Bellator’s rival promotion.
