MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC on Fox 16 lightweight James Krause as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card bout on Saturday night (July 25, 2015) against Daron Cruickshank at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

The veteran fighter started strong in his UFC career, but he knows his back is firmly against the wall after losing three of his last four bouts:

“This will be 50-some fights for me. It’s a must-win for me. I definitely thinkĀ I have to pull out a win to keep my job here and I know that going into it. I’m fully prepared to go in and do what I have to do.”
