Ebrima Faal to face Brayan Aspegren in explosive Nordic derby!



Muay Thai For Life

A banger of a match up has just been announced for Fight Club Rush 18 as Sweden’s Ebrima Faal will face Finnish prospect Brayan Aspegren at middleweight! FCR 18 goes down at Västerås Arena on Saturday, November 25th.

Faal holds a 1-2 record and is an intense striker with boatloads of power. While he came up short in his two first pro bouts, forced to tap out to submissions, he has since gone on to reach star status in Sweden. Since joining team MACC Faal has scored a huge first round knockout win over fan favourite Nabbe Malki at FCR 16.

Aspegren has represented the Finnish National MMA Team on several occasions and has racked up several impressive amateur wins, including a strong victory over Kirill Andreev. Aspegren made his pro debut at light heavyweight in May of this year, completely dominating Georgia’s Davit Gujejiani to score a second round submission.

Both Faal and Aspegren are strong, hard-hitting fighters and the dash of Nordic rivalry will surely get the crowd going!
