Allstars prospect Mark Vologdin to collide with Finnish vet Tuomas Grönvall



One of the final pro bouts was just announced for Fight Club Rush 18: A bantamweight fight between Tuomas ”The Tank Engine” Grönvall and Mark Vologdin! FCR 18 is booked for Västerås Arena, Saturday November 25th .

Grönvall has a 11-5-1 record and is one of Finlands most experienced veterans in the lighter weight divisions and has been a mainstay on the Finnish MMA scene since his pro debut in 2012.

Throughout the years Grönvall has proven himself to be tough as nails and his most recent losses are to top competition like Farbod Iran Nezhad and Wilson Reis. However Grönvall has won four out of his last five fights and is coming off of a second round submission win just two weeks ago on home soil.

Competing as a pro since 2018, Vologdin has kept busy and turned around a tough 0-1-1 start to his career by winning five straight fights – all by stoppage.

During the summer of 2021 Vologdin lost two fights by decision but rebounded with three straight wins and then joined the famed Team Allstars. Since then he has defeated Nodar Khotenashvili by way of first round submission and currently holds a 9-3-1 record.
