Sampo finds it to be an even matchup…
MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed UFC flyweight fighter Zach Makovsky this week. Makovsky will next step into the Octagon on Saturday, February 22 at UFC 170 against Josh Sampo. Below are some highlights from the interview.
Makovsky on his UFC debut: "My debut, I was nervous as always, and it's always the same feeling, whether it's my first fight in Asbury Convention Center or my UFC debut. I always feel the same kind of nerves, but it was just more enjoyable."
Makovsky's thoughts on Josh Sampo: "He's the most similar guy to me that I've fought, in a lot of ways, too. We both come from collegiate wrestling backgrounds. He was a Division II All-American; I wrestled at a Division I school. He favors grappling, and I think I do as well. He has good striking, and I do too, but I think we both favor grappling. I think we're evenly matched, so it's going to be competitive wherever the fight ends up. I believe I have a speed advantage, and I can use my speed and mobility to control the fight. I'm also hoping I'm smarter than him."
