- Comment: He had some fights for second-tier MMA organizations, such as Pancrase and Cage Warriors, but I'm not seeing any fights for top-tier organizations, so doesn't meet the WP:NSPORT guideline. The cited sources are a self-supplied bio, a primary source interview on a non-notable podcast, and a brief mention in a memoir. None of these are independent, reliable sources containing significant coverage of Batten. Worldbruce (talk) 05:09, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
- Comment: If this makes it to mainspace, move Danny Batten to Danny Batten (football player), and create a Danny Batten WP:DAB page. -- RoySmith (talk) 19:46, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
