UAE Warriors 28’s Dakota Ditcheva not rushing a UFC contract, but believes she belongs already

Interview with Dakota Ditcheva above 

Dakota Ditcheva (4-0) discusses her Mar. 26 fight against Paula Silva (5-0) at UAE Warriors 28 on March 26th. Dakota also spoke about picking up a win in Canada after a last-minute opponent switch-up, why she’s not attending UFC London this Saturday and how she believes her skillset is UFC level at this point.

“We talk about it all the time with my coaches and my managers, I think to be honest I’d be half the girls at if I’m going up from the bottom of the (UFC bantamweight division). But I just don’t see the rush (to make the UFC), it’s like I’m 23-years old, I’m fighting in Dubai, fighting in Canada. I’ve still got a lot to learn and a lot of cage time. I’m just taking it fight to fight. For now it’s just in the back of our minds.”
