Tobias “Bad Intention” Harila, one of Sweden’s biggest rising MMA stars, returned to the cage on Friday’s Cage Warriors 134 card in London.
The 28-year-old was initially supposed to fight at featherweight, but accepted a lightweight bout against irishman Decky McAleenan on short notice after multiple shifts of opponents.
However, the size difference didn’t appear to be a factor as Harila managed to finish the fight by knockout in the first round.
McAleenan started off good, but seemed to get too cocky and decided to drop his guard while standing right in front of Harila – who immediately retaliated with a big flurry that rocked McAleenan. After landing a big knee and several punches to the head, the irishman dropped to the canvas and Harila was awarded the victory as referee Marc Goodard had seen enough.
