A man that has seen the spotlights of every major promotion in the United States, UFC Lightweight James Krause has been through the WEC, Titan Fighting Championships, Shark Fights, RFA, Bellator and finally to the UFC.

His next destination is Las Vegas, Nevada for UFC 173 against former WEC champion Jamie Varner.

But Krause is no stranger to fighting former champions, In his last fight he faced off with former KOTC champion Bobby Green. He’s defeated former TKO champion Sam Stout and Bellator tournament champion Toby Imada as well as went toe to toe with recent feather weight number 1 contender, Ricardo Lamas and the renown “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone.

Krause couldn’t be more ready for this Saturday.

“Training has been going great, it was a long long 3 month training camp and I’m cutting weight now. I’m ready for it all to be over and I’m just ready to fight Saturday. I went to American Top Team in Florida and we worked a lot on my strength with mainly Will Brooks and Gleison Tibau and then back to Glory MMA where I trained with my team Tim Elliot, Gaston Reyno and Zak Cummings.”

Brooks recently won the Interim Bellator Lightweight title and Tibau has competed in the UFC for 8 years. Cummings is undefeated in the UFC, Elliot has faced 2 #1 contenders in his 5 UFC fights and Gaston Reyno is one of the best kickboxers in the country which round out a group of outstadning Glory fighters that have James Krause finely tuned for Saturday.

A Saturday that will allow Krause to open the Main Card of the pay-per-view.

“I see my fight with Jamie Varner being a striking battle and we are going to wing a lot of punches, it’ll be very back and fourth fight. I know we are both well rounded so this will be very entertaining for the fans. This has a big potential to be fight of the night, we have a history of putting on great fights.”

With 6 fight of the night awards between the two, you can’t help but agree with James’s assumption.

However there maybe a submission of the night award that may come Krause’s way as well.

“It’s hard to tell how the fight will end really, I’d say a late submission in the 3rd round. Probably by a guillotine choke I would think.”

Be sure to check out James Krause face off against Jamie Varner this Saturday night on UFC 173: Barao vs Dillashaw.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
