Krauss talks about signing with UFC


“It’s a four-fight contract that I signed, but it’s pretty complicated,” Pascal told Your MMA. “The UFC can throw you out after the first loss, that’s how their contracts are, but I will prepare in San Diego for the first fight – it’s going to be great, I love it!”

Noticeably excited about the prospect of fighting in the home of MMA’s elite, “Panzer” continued enthusiastically,

“It’s crazy. It’s like a dream come true. It’s hard to realise and I don’t think I will until I’m stood in the UFC Octagon with Bruce Buffer calling out my name and then I’ll be like ‘wow, I’m here’.”

Pascal’s finishing ability means that he is yet to go to the scorecards in his young career and, although he is well-rounded with a boxing and wrestling background, it has been his submission arsenal that has ended seven of his nine bouts. Heading to Victory in California with the likes of Dean Lister and Shannon Gugerty – away from his usual team of ‘Grappling Arts’ in Freiburg – he is anticipating improvement in every area.

“My good friend Pete Sobotta prepared for his last fight over there and we had a good contact with them so they invited me over,” Krauss noted of his link up with the San Diego gym, formerly the Throwdown training centre. “I will become better in my standup, my ground game, my wrestling. It’s going to be great. I’m looking forward to it.”

 Ah yeah, as seen below your post :) Was a good fight but imo Pascal just seemed one step ahead of Quinny all the way up to the finish but I'm sure once he's rested up after his injury he'll come back better than ever.

Interesting to see how he does in the UFC, he recently beat an old mate, John Quinn.

Very excited! Germany is a very good sports nation. Should be some good up and coming mma fighters out of there.
