Predrag Bogdanovic is a name to remember.

Coming fresh off a win in the opening rounds of the €1 million OKTAGON lightweight tournament, the Serbian lightweight is on the brink of becoming one of the absolute hottest MMA prospects in Europe.

Next up is OKTAGON superstar Losene Keita, who’s perhaps the biggest favorite of winning the whole tournament.

“I am very excited,” Bogdanovic tells Frontkick in an exclusive interview. “I wanted to fight Keita from the start of the Tipsport Tournament.”

Holding an impressive 16-1 record, with 15 wins coming in local promotion Serbian Battle Championship, Bogdanovic has proven to be a very consistent fighter. Going from the smaller venues of SBC, to a major sport arena in OKTAGON MMA, was a big step up for the young Serb.

“It was amazing! I got to experience the OKTAGON in a fully packed arena, and that was something completely new to me.”

Predrag Bogdanovic looks to prove his the best in Europe

The lightweight tournament is entering the quarterfinal stage in the summer months, and many skilled fighters are already out of the competition.

Just as usual, the tournament features a mix of up-and-coming prospects and established stars, providing an excellent platform for athletes to prove themselves and potentially earn fame, as well as a career-changing €1 million.

“Honestly, the cash is nice, but I’m here to prove that I am the best lightweight in Europe.”

Who’s the most dangerous opponent in your opinion?

“The man I am facing next, Keita.”
