UFC lightweight Ramsey Nijem has a chance to improve his current record of 8-4 on the main card of UFC Fight Night 39 this upcoming weekend.
The 26-year-old combatant will be facing Beneil Dariush to commence the action on UFC Fight Pass this upcoming Friday (April 11, 2014), and he's made quite the prediction as to how he sees his fight playing out.
Training with members of the Skrap Pack, including Gilbert Melendez and Jake Shields, Nijem laments his lack of finishing inside the Octagon, especially in his last fight against Justin Edwards at UFC Fight Night 35.
The young fighter hints at a frustrating night for his opponent, vowing to show the world how nasty he could be (via The Shoot):
"What I do know about him is he's a great jiu-jitsu practitioner, has good knockout power. He dropped Charlie Brenneman, I feel like there's a lot of holes I'll really be able to capitalize on his stand-up, on his hands. I'm going to get in there, I'm going to get real nasty, get mean and I'm going to make a statement. It's going to be a very violent finish."
Well, that's a nice way to get us excited for this fight.
Dariush is currently undefeated in the sport, mustering up a record of 7-0, including six stoppage victories.
See you in the capital!
