UFC welterweight Nicolas Dalby suffered a lopsided unanimous decision loss (30-26 x3) to Peter Sobotta at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 93 event in Hamburg, Germany.

Sobotta was able to drop Dalby early on in the first-round and things never really got any better from there for the Danish fighter.

Sobotta smothered Dalby on the ground and landed some nasty ground and pound for the better part of their fifteen minute contest.

Dalby showcased his toughness in the fight, as he was offered plenty of opportunities to give in to a submission but opted against doing so.

‘Sharpshooter’ took to Instagram posting a photo with the following caption one day after his fight with Sobotta:

“Let’s all just agree that this isn’t super comfortable . Had double vision(edit: and a broken orbital bone) after that first stinging uppercut. I hope I’ll get another chance to showcase for the @ufc that I belong. #IWillBeBack”
