Nermin Hajdarpasic is the latest name to be confirmed for the upcoming Superior Challenge 27 “Legends” card at Annexet in Stockholm, Sweden on March 16.

Hajdarpasic, a former national boxing champion, holds a professional MMA record of 4-2-1 with two knockout victories. The heavyweight fighter started his career by going 4-0 on local FCR MMA cards, turning pro right away with barely any mixed martial arts preparations prior to his first MMA fight.

After finishing multiple-time IMMAF champion Irman Smajic, Hajdarpasic later signed with top European promotion OKTAGON MMA where he lost a couple of fights against Alexander Poppeck and Daniel Skvor. He also fought Robin Fosum to a split draw.

Now, Hajdarpasic is looking to get back into win column as he’s set to make his debut for Superior Challenge, the biggest MMA organization in Northern Europe and the promotion that really formed Swedish MMA the last 15 years.

Superior Challenge has not yet confirmed who Hajdarpasic will fight on March 16. However, it’s safe to say that Superior Challenge 27 will be a stacked fight card judging by the fighters already booked for the “Legends” event.

Besides the debut of Nermin Hajdarpasic, Superior Challenge 27 features three championship bouts as well as a middleweight super fight between a couple of retired Swedish combat sports legends in UFC vet Papy Abedi and former kickboxing champion Rickard Nordstrand.
