The PFL Europe Playoffs in Paris takes place on Saturday September 30 and features two red-hot Swedish fighters.
Swedish veteran Cornelia Holm (6-5) will take on undefeated rising star Dakota Ditcheva (8-0) in a flyweight semifinal.
Holm comes from a split decision win against the tough Marta Waliczek and is certain that she got what it takes to get Ditcheva her first defeat.
“She never faced anyone who’s as strong as me and so good all around. Definitely no one who’s such a good wrestler as me,” Holm recently told Frontkick.
Undefeated Ali Taleb returns
The card also features undefeated Swedish fighter Ali Taleb (9-0) who’s taking on the dangerous Khurshed Kakhorov (10-1) in a bantamweight semifinal.
Taleb is a bulldozer of a fighter, with eight of his wins coming via stoppage. His German opponent enters the fight with back-to-back wins.
Both Holm and Taleb is competing for a chance at the European Championship and $100,000 cash prize.
