Dakota Ditcheva Reacts To Making Playoffs, Talks Bishop Matchup

Uncasville – PFL flyweight star Dakota Ditcheva scored a first round TKO of Chelsea Hackett at PFL 4 and made the playoffs with 12 points in the regular season.

“I’m excited to get straight back into the gym. I literally live for this sport,” Ditcheva told Cageside Press among other reporters at her post-fight scrum on Thursday.

“For me obviously getting a quick finish like that, I’ve got no injuries and stuff, so I can get straight back into the gym. Life in Florida at ATT is absolutely amazing and I enjoy every second of it so I’m excited.”

Ditcheva (12-0) gets Jena Bishop next round, who lost to Taila Santos at PFL 4, but made the playoffs.

“It’s going to be a tough matchup. I feel like it’s opposite styles so it’s like I’m going to probably want to keep it stood up. She’s probably going to want to go to the ground, but I think we’ll both be ready for both ends,” she said.

“I’ve shown my grappling in previous fights, she’s shown her striking even tonight, I thought she did really well. I was really impressed with her so I’m excited for a good matchup.”
