Interview with Nick Maximov above – Check it out
Nick Maximov (6-0) talks about signing with the UFC, when we can expect him to make his promotional debut and how a short-notice UFC fight fell through for this Saturday. Nick also talks about being slated to fight against on DWCS, helping Nate Diaz prepare for Leon Edwards, and how this UFC contract came together.
“Nate (Diaz) talked to me about it a little bit, but really I really didn’t expect it at all. But I think that’s the best way to find out. I’d rather find out like this, then being like ‘you’ll find out soon’ It was pretty surreal. (Nate’s) been doing it for a while, but yeah he’s helping me a lot.”
