Interview with Dakota Ditcheva above
Dakota Ditcheva (3-0) discusses fight against Simone Da Silva (17-18) at PAWFC 1 this Saturday. Dakota also spoke about how this fight came together, what type of camp she’s had during the holidays and facing a new opponent this Saturday.
“That happened like a few days before I came out, so like five days ago we found out. We were looking for a few different opponents. We ended up with a really good match. Last minute opponents aren’t the best, but it works out great for me since it’s a tough fight. She’s really experienced, she’s a lot older than me as well. It’s going to be a credible opponent which is what I need. At this stage I need testing, before it’s my time before stepping into the UFC.”
