Oliver Enkamp (7-1) will face Danny Roberts (14-3) on the UFC London card going down this Saturday. While many Nordic fighters were looking to get booked for the rare European UFC card, it is only Enkamp that is on the card.
Enkamp won at Superior Challenge 15 for his 7th straight win in his pro MMA career before getting his UFC debut fight in the UFC last May 28th in Stockholm, Sweden.
Enkamp (7-1), the formerly undefeated prospect took on vet Nordine Taleb (13-4) at UFC Stockholm on short notice in his Octagon debut entering with an ankle injury. He replaced Emil Meek who withdrew due to injury.
The Frenchman (10 years the Swede’s elder) handed “The Future” his first professional loss via unanimous decision in a spirited bout.
The Pancrase Gym / Combat Academy fighter will face Roberts who is out of London and will have the home crowd behind him. “Hot Chocolate” also lost to Taleb in his last outing, however by stoppage at just 59 seconds into the bout. Overall he has a 14 win and 3 loss record, with a solid 3 wins and 2 losses in the UFC. He also beat training partner David Gonzalez at Cage Warriors 54 back in 2013.
“My focus shifts to maximizing my strengths, and I spend less hours on technique but more on cardio/sparring. This not only prepares my body for the fight but also the mind and confidence in my strong skills” says Enkamp about his final preparation for the bout.
Enkamp will fight 7th on the 8 bouts of the prelim card.
