A UFC star doubled down on threatening UFC president Dana White over the weekend. Never mind that White is technically his boss. Never mind that White is technically every UFC fighter’s boss. UFC featherweight contender Movsar Evloev wants his next opponent to be ranked in the top 10, or he plans on taking his frustrations out on White.
He posted, “@DanaWhite, I told you, if my next opponent is not top 10, I will come for you. this is your good chance. I’m already tired of my 5 day vacation!”.

Evloev Won Fight at UFC 263, Made Threats Back Then
Evloev defeated Hakeem Dawodu at UFC 263 on June 12. The three judges sitting cageside scored the bout 29-27, 29-27, and 29-27 for Evloev.
According to MMA Junkie, the key stats of the fight were Evloev outstriking Dawodu 193-60 and the Russian star also landing nine total takedowns over three rounds.
But after his big win at UFC 263 was the first time Evloev lobbed a threat over to White about getting Evloev the kind of opponent he wants to face next.
“I’m ready to fight with anyone in my division, only top 10s. Dana, if my next opponent is not a top 10, I want to fight with you,” Evloev said.
The 27-year-old mentioned Arnold Allen, Josh Emmett, and Calvin Kattar by name, but finished his post-fight comments by saying he wanted only to face in his next fight a UFC star ranked in the top 10 at 145 pounds.
“I deserve it. I need a good name for a fast road to the belt. For me, just the belt matters,” Evloev said.
