Serendipitously, this weekend sees the return of Superior Challenge – Sweden’s top promotion – following a year’s hiatus, with what is an absolutely cracking card.
Featuring living MMA legend Jen’s ‘Lil Evil’ Pulver in the main event against Swedish veteran Sami Aziz, as well as familiar faces from the UFC like the very talented (and IMHO cut too quickly) Besam Yousef and Anton Kuivanen, Cage Warriors veteran Diego Gonzales and a host of well travelled and box fresh fighters, it’s probably the biggest MMA card of the weekend, with the possible exception of Bellator’s effort on Friday.
It’s a top card, and we’d urge you to seek out videos from it wherever you can find them.
