Norwegian-Albanian prospect Arlind Berisha (2-0) is one of the hottest names on the boiling Scandinavian MMA scene.

This past Saturday he demolished Dominik Owsiany in the first-round at Allstars Fight Night 7 in Stockholm. The fight barely got started before the referee stopped the action as Berisha poured on relentless ground-and-pound.

“I feel very good. I performed well but I still need to improve everything. Make everything hundred percent all the time,” Berisha tells Frontkick in an exclusive interview.

The tall and explosive light heavyweight prospect made his pro debut at Fight Club Rush 17 in September 2023. Since then he’s been looking for a fight, but finding an opponent is sometimes easier said than done for a dangerous up-and-comer.

“It’s hard but I know it’s part of the game.”

Arlind Berisha is aiming for UFC gold

As an amateur, the 23-year-old prospect fought in IMMAF as well as Cage Warriors Academy, where he won a title. He was also champion in local Norwegian promotion Gorilla Fight Club. Looking ahead, Berisha will fight in any organization as long as it eventually takes him to the top of the world.

“I really don’t care where I fight. I just want to build my record and have fights that take me to the UFC. I want to fight at least twice more this year,” Berisha says.

“My end goal is of course to be a UFC champion!”
