Daniel Santos Responds to Adrian Yanez’s Callout: 'I Want This Fight'

UFC
May 21, 2024
A potential barnburner of a bantamweight matchup appears to be in the making.

Adrian Yanez scored a brutal first-round technical knockout win over Vinicius Salvador at UFC Fight Night 241 on Saturday. Yanez subsequently called out fellow prospect Daniel Santos for a bout at The Sphere in Las Vegas at Noche UFC. Yanez also expressed interest in a potential matchup with Victor Henry during Saturday’s post-fight media scrum.

“I had a couple of guys call me out,” Yanez said. “I know John Castaneda has a really tough fight in front of him, I think against Daniel Marcos. Daniel Santos, on the other hand, doesn’t have a fight booked. Me and him in The Sphere, I wouldn’t mind that at all. I think that would be fun. And also too man, f—-ing Victor Henry looked really good in his last fight. I think that is one for the fans as well, too.”

Santos didn’t waste time in accepting Yanez’s callout via social media.

“I want this fight [Sean Shelby]” Santos wrote on his Instagram stories. “I accept [Adrian Yanez]. Let’s do it [Dana White], [Diego Lima].”

Yanez’s win over Salvador saw him bounce back from consecutive stoppage losses against Rob Font and Jonathan Martinez — the only two defeats of his UFC career. Meanwhile, Santos came up on the short side of a unanimous decision against Julio Arce in his UFC debut in April 2022. The Brazilian has since bounced back with a TKO win over John Castaneda followed by a unanimous decision win over Johnny Munoz Jr.
