An A-class amateur lightweight MMA bout between Anton Hellström and Jafar Yousifi is set for FCR 13. The highly anticipated event will take place at Solnahallen in Stockholm on August 27.
Hellström is a three-time Swedish boxing champion and trains at Söders Fight Gym. His opponent, the former Muay Thai fighter Yousifi, won his A-class amateur debut at Excellence FC with a second-round TKO.
Current FCR 13 fight card
In the Fight Club Rush 13 main event, we will see a rematch between Jonny Touma and Zoran Milic, this time for the FCR flyweight title. The two rivals fought at FCR 9 last year. In the co-main event, Bernardo Sopai and Karlen Minasian will fight for the vacant FCR bantamweight title.
“Our plan going forward is to hold two events a year in Stockholm, give or take. As usual, we’re doing our very best to put together a fight card with evenly-matched and qualitative MMA bouts that mean something,” Fight Club Rush CEO Zlatko Ostrogonac told Frontkick a while back.
