Born to parents of Latin American descent, Dan was raised in Santa Ana, California where he developed an interest for combat sports from an early age. As a teenager, he trained with various underground MMA teams and martial arts schools to hone his skills. His dedication soon paid off when he won several amateur tournaments at just 18 years old. This success motivated others around him to take up fighting as well, inspiring other kids in his community to pursue their dreams of becoming professional fighters like him.

In 2016 Dan turned pro and signed with Bellator MMA where he quickly made a name for himself by winning three out of four fights on their roster before signing with UFC two years later. He went on to win two out of three bouts against some tough competition including veterans Francisco Trinaldo and Brad Tavares who both have more than thirty matches under their belt compared to Dan’s seventeen.
