Elmar Umarov hoping FAC 15 victory leads to DWCS opportunity

Interview with Elmar Umarov below

Elmar Umarov (4-1) discusses his welterweight fight against Devon Webber (4-3) at FAC 15 on July 29. Elmar also spoke about his first-round stoppage win in his last fight, how this matchup came together and how a win could lead to an opportunity on DWCS.

“There hasn’t been any talks (about signing with the UFC) but I texted (my manager) Jason, I said ‘listen if there are any dropouts or last minute fights, I’ll be down for 170-pounds’ Maybe after this fight that could happen.” 

Announced FAC 15 fights:

Mikey England vs. Lucas Batista – 170 lbs
Chantel Coates vs. E. Schroder – 130 lbs
Alejandro Gomez vs. Peter Lucitt – 135 lbs

The Fighting Alliance Championship card is set to take place at Cable Dahmer Arena in Independence, Missouri.
