Zawada said this to wz.de about coming to fight in the UFC, "Outsiders do not always understand our sport. Sure, two guys get into the ring and hit each other. But we are trained for it. This is not a dirty sport, in fact, MMA fights are considered safer than classic boxing. Only the victory counts. I do not care how I look afterwards. Everything is possible. If you can dream and work hard, you can realize your dreams.”

Oddmakers have Roberts as a -400 favorite which I think is too high considering he has only fought six times in the UFC but Zawada is making his UFC debut and we really don’t know what he is capable of. I will simply avoid a side and look at the rounds total. The combined first round finishes of Roberts and Zawada are 13, so I will take the rounds to go under the total.
