The UFC debut of Zak Ottow will take place on Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 96 in Portland, Oregon as he will meet Josh Burkman in a welterweight bout on the fight card coming from the Moda Center.

Ottow (13-3) enters this fight on a four fight winning streak and he is 7-1 in his last eight fights. He is coming off a decision win in June against Craig Eckelberg and was scheduled to fight next week at Legacy FC 60 against Jos Eichelberger.

On Monday afternoon, I had the chance to talk with Ottow about his UFC debut on Saturday. We talked about how he got this opportunity and what he needs to do in the fight against Burkman to walk away with a victory.
