Danish UFC veteran Nicolas Dalby was a big underdog going into his fight at this past Saturday’s UFC Sao Paulo.

Undefeated with 15 wins, and the Brazilian crowd behind him, Gabriel Bonfim looked like quite a challenge for anyone in the welterweight division. However, the Danish 38-year-old claimed he was laughing when he saw the odds for the fight.

“I think the bookmakers undervalued me,” Dalby said on The MMA Hour. “I was extremely confident going into the fight. Of course, there wasn’t much video we could look at compared to my last fight, but I felt like we could see enough that we knew he was a diamond in the rough, and he still had some lessons to be learned.”

Nicolas Dalby is a 12-fight UFC vet

With 30 professional MMA fights to his name, 12 in the UFC, Dalby is one of the most experienced Nordic mixed martial arts fighters right now.

Currently riding a four-fight winning streak, the Danish welterweight is ready to take on just about anyone at 170 lbs.

“Anyone in this weight division I’m ready for. Just give me anyone. I know it’s a thing to have a name, but honestly, give me anyone. I’m not precious like that,” Dalby said.
