Enkamp revealed to MMAViking.com that upon turning 25 it was now time to get the UFC as soon as possible, and he is doing everything he can to make it happen. The undefeated welterweight put things into high gear once he became healthy, and excepted even accepted a short notice fight at Superior Challenge 14 to build on his recent submission victory over Arne Boekee.
