I haven’t competed for quite some time so there’s that, but I have always been diligent," Pacatiw conceded."I’ve always looked to develop what needs to be developed despite being on the sidelines," he quipped."I’ve continued to grow in kickboxing and BJJ.

"In his last outing, Pacatiw earned himself a $50,000 performance bonus for submitting his foe and was one of the handful of fighters who transferred from Team Lakay to Lions Nation MMA last year.For Pacatiw, his upcoming fight is a chance to prove that he made the right move."I’m excited. We’re a new team and we’re always looking to prove our worth. There’s pressure for sure, being in a new team people will always look at us and have these expectations," Pacatiw said.
