Mixed Martial Arts Career
Danny Castillo began competing in professional mixed martial arts in 2007. He fought in smaller promotions, going 5-0, before he signed with World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC).
In his debut with the WEC Castillo took on future WEC Lightweight title challenger Donald Cerrone. Castillo would suffer his first career loss, getting submitted via Armbar. He then defeated Rafael Dias at WEC 36: Faber vs. Brown and Phil Cardella at WEC 39: Brown vs. Garcia. Castillo was then scheduled to fight Ricardo Lamas at WEC 42: Torres vs. Bowles. Castillo ended the fight at 4:15 of the second round, finishing Lamas with punches. With the win, Castillo was able to hand Lamas his first career loss.
On November 18, 2009, Castillo fought at WEC 44: Brown vs. Aldo, facing off against Shane Roller. It was a very close fight, most likely being one round each going into the third round with Castillo getting the first and Roller getting the second. Castillo pressed the action early on in the third, but Roller eventually gained back control and locked in a fight ending Rear Naked Choke.
Castillo returned to action on March 6, 2010 at WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz, where he faced off against Anthony Pettis, who at the time of the fight was 1-1 in the WEC. Early in the first round, Pettis followed a jab with a crushing left high kick that had Castillo out well before he hit the mat. Pettis was also able to deliver a quick series of punches to his defenseless foe, forcing the referee to halt the fight at 2:27 of the first round. The loss was the first time Castillo has ever lost two consecutive fights in a row.
Castillo's next fight was scheduled for August 18, 2010 at WEC 50: Cruz vs. Benavidez 2 against WEC newcomer Dustin Poirier. Poirier showed a solid sprawl throughout the fight, but Castillo's relentless attacks eventually forced the fight to the mat. With an effective top game and suitable submission defense, the former NAIA All-American wrestler cruised to a Decision (Unanimous) victory via scores of 30-27, 29-28 and 30-27. The win secured his career with the WEC.
