MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC Fight Night 86 welterweight Zak Cummings as he prepares for his preliminary card headlining bout this Sunday (April 10, 2016) against Nicolas Dalby at Arena Zagreb in Zagreb, Croatia.
The talented TUF veteran expects a competitive scrap against Nicolas Dalby, but he feels that he’s a league above anyone that his upcoming opponent has faced thus far in his career:
“Dalby hasn’t lost yet. He’s got that arrogance where he hasn’t found the person to beat him yet. His last fight was a lot closer. He lost the first two rounds and still came out and fought his ass off the third round so that shows me he’s got the will to win. I just don’t think he’s fought anybody of my caliber. I think I’m a huge step up in competition for him. He fought really tall and I sit down a lot more than his last opponent. I think he’ll be in trouble. He’s not a big finisher so he doesn’t have that kill factor. I feel like I can finish a fight on the feet, on the ground. I’m dangerous all over the place. He’s gonna be harder to break mentally but as the fight goes, he’s gonna realize he’s outclassed and that’s what I see happening.”
