Interview with Zak Ottow above
Zak Ottow had four wins in eight fights under contract with the UFC. Going 4-4 in a major promotion, while facing the top competition, usually doesn’t align with a release or demotion but it did in this case. Now 1-0 since his departure from the UFC, Ottow is looking to get in as many fights as possible to go on a run on the regional scene.
“It’s been extremely difficult,” Ottow told MyMMANews. “Super thankful for Mike Goodwin to find me an opponent in November and Iowa was a state that was able to keep operating. It’s been real difficult getting fighter’s fights that they want, it doesn’t help when you have 8 UFC fights on your resume,” Ottow continued. “People are kind of like I don’t know about that one.”
