Pascal Krauss (10-1) was undefeated and stopped his first nine opponents when he joined the UFC. The 25-year-old welterweight then picked up his first win inside the Octagon with a decision over Mark Scanlon in 2010.
After a shoulder injury sidelined Krauss from meeting John Hathaway next, the two finally fought in 2012. Hathaway handed Krauss his first loss, which came by decision. Then a mishap in training caused Krauss to suffer a dislocated vertebra while sparring this past September.
“I learned a lot of things [from the loss],” said Krauss to Sherdog. “Some of my mistakes were pointed out and I’m trying not to do them again. You can only get better by losing. You got to take the ‘L’ from the loss and turn the ‘L’ into learn, so I’m trying to do that.”
This weekend, at UFC on FOX 6 on January 26, Krauss takes on the American Mike Stumpf. That goes down on the preliminary card, which takes place from the United Center in Chicago, IL.
“It doesn’t feel good to lose, so I’m going to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” said Krauss.
