UFC Fight Night 91’s Louis Smolka: ‘I don’t want to engage in the pocket too much’

MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC Fight Night 91 flyweight Louis Smolka as he prepares for his upcoming main card bout Wednesday night (July 13, 2016) against Ben Nguyen at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The talented Hawaiian has certainly done his homework as his bout against Nguyen nears, and he seems to have a solid game plan for the contest:

“I think [Ben Nguyen]’s gonna come out really aggressive in the beginning. I don’t really want to engage in the pocket too much unnecessarily. I want to use range, kicks, if I can get a takedown that would be good too in the first. From there, I’ll try to engage harder, land some body shots, damage him. I can transition between rhythms really well.”
