The 32-year-old Mongolian fighter knows that he is fighting a veteran of the UFC, and he is very experienced.
“Oh, yeah, I know that he’s been around for a while, same with the Korean Zombie,” Danaa told The Allstar in Singapore through his translator. “And you know, I’ve definitely watched some film, like watched his fights in the past, but you know, not really like intense study or anything like that, but I’m definitely aware of that he’s a very experienced fighter.”
Danaa is known as a knockout artist. In his 12 wins, eight of them have been knockouts. All three of his wins inside of the UFC have been first-round knockouts as well. He picked up a Performance of the Night bonus last year when he finished a returning Brandon Davis at UFC Fight Night: Ladd vs. Dumont.
In his fight with Kang, he won’t be headhunting for the knockout. Instead, he will let the finish come to him and happen organically.
“Yeah, no game plan. You know, not necessarily going for the knockout or anything like that,” Danaa said. “I’m just gonna see how the fight goes. And then, if the opportunity presents itself, it’ll take it, but I’m not like rushing or headhunting or anything like that. I’m just going to take it how the fight comes.”
Danaa suffered his first knockout loss in his last outing. At UFC Columbus in March, Chris Guiterrez knocked him out with a spinning back fist followed by elbows. Still, “Storm” believes it was an early stoppage.
“I felt like I was winning the fight and, you know, also felt like it was arguably in an early stoppage,” Danaa said. “I definitely got caught, but I was working my way up. But, you know, I felt like it was an early stoppage, but it is what it is.”
Being knocked out for the first time, most fighters would take several months off to let their body and head heal but not Danaa. He was on vacation in Mongolia when he got the call to compete at UFC 275, and he jumped at it.
He told the AllStar that he wasn’t concussed in his knockout loss, so he didn’t need to take time off.
“The offer came in, and you know, I’m a fighter, so I took the fight.”
