Nicolas Dalby (14-1-1) is back in action this Saturday, but before then the Dane took to Facebook for a live video Q & A and revealed some interesting tidbits. The “Sharpshooter” is asked about the possibility of the UFC having an event in Denmark. “I can’t be specific. I have reason to believe that the chances are good in the future.”
Danish MMA is on the rise in terms of it’s attention with the UFC. Saturday’s card will have two Danes for the first time on one card, with heavyweight Christian Colombo making his pro debut. Also on the roster are Anna Elmose, Joachim Christensen, and Damir Hadzovic.
Dalby will be stepping into the cage against Germany’s own Peter Sobatta (15-5-1) at the UFC Fight Night Hamburg. “He is a submission specialist. Classic thing of him wanting to get me down, and me wanting to keep it standing.” says Dalby about facing the grappling specialist.
The Rumble Sports fighter will be looking to avoid back to back losses as he is coming off a loss to Zak Cummings back in April at UFC FN 86.
“If I lose my next fight there is a probability I will not stick around. I feel the pressure…. but in a good way.”
“Mark Hunt is my favorite fighter.” says the welterweight that will be stepping into the Octagon for the 4th time. “If I could get an autograph from one guy it would be Mark Hunt.”
“I can do 40 push-ups.” laughs Dalby, when questions by a fan about how many he could do. Check out the full live chat on the Facebook UFC Europe page.
