Niko Price is winless in his previous three octagon appearances however hopes to vary that towards Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 193.
Going into Saturday’s occasion on the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, which streams on ESPN+, Price (14-5 MMA, 6-5 UFC) admits he’s in a “bumpy part” of his profession. He has only one win courting again to March 2019, and regardless of simply receiving a brand new four-fight UFC contract, is aware of he has to rebound within the welterweight bout with Oliveira (21-10-1 MMA, 11-8 UFC).
How does he intend on doing that? Price mentioned he doubled down on his coaching and expects that to supply constructive outcomes.
“I looked at my career and I added more training,” Price advised MMA Junkie and different reporters at Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 193 media day. “We added more technical days and I feel like I excelled a lot during my camp this time. So I’m ready to go. Cardio is tenfold better. I’m ready to fight.”
Oliveira can be going by way of a little bit of a tough patch as he’s 2-5 in his previous eight fights. The Brazilian is in want of a rebound efficiency, too, so Price mentioned he expects a wild battle that would result in a “Performance of the Night” or “Fight of the Night” bonus.
