Danial Williams, a multi-sport athlete, takes a little break from mixed martial arts competition, which he describes as “extremely hard.”

As an athlete who is actively competing in three different disciplines, ‘Mini T’ Danial Williams is occasionally need to alter his concentration in order to accommodate whatever is coming up next.

For the time being, the Australian-Thai slugger competes for the strawweight kickboxing gold against Jonathan Di Bella on Friday, October 6, at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

In the days leading up to his second defense of his world championship at ONE Fight Night 15, the Scrappy MMA and Kao Sok Muay Thai affiliate discussed which of the three combat sports—Muay Thai, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts—is the most difficult.

According to what Danial Williams said to Sportskeeda MMA:

“Mixed martial arts will be the most difficult of them, it will be the hardest. Simply due to the fact that it draws from several fields. For this reason, I really enjoy the competition that MMA provides. Because of this, I decided to take action and give it a shot, despite the fact that I was well aware that it would be exceedingly difficult.

Because he is not one to back down from a task, the 30-year-old has become one of the most flexible and dependable athletes competing on the world stage of ONE Championship thanks to his ability to swap hats.

The native of Perth participated in mixed martial arts four times throughout the year 2022, following a stellar debut performance in April 2021 against Rodtang Jitmuangnon, which was recognized as the 2021 ONE Super Series Fight of the Year.

Despite the fact that he had stupendous victories against Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke, Namiki Kawahara, and Zelang Zhaxi, Danial Williams was defeated by Jeremy Miado through technical knockout in the third round of their fight.

In the early part of this year, he stepped up on short notice once more to compete for the ONE flyweight kickboxing world championship held by Superlek Kiatmoo9. Unfortunately, the athlete from Australia received yet another knockout blow while competing within the circle.

In spite of this, he is more disciplined and focused than ever before as he prepares to take on Di Bella at ONE Fight Night 15 in the hopes of claiming the ONE gold belt for himself.

On Friday, October 6, fans in North America who have a current membership to Amazon Prime Video will be able to watch all the action live and for free during primetime in the United States.
