Nabbe Malki FCR 13 Swedish Frontkick

Swedish prospect and fan favourite Nabbe Malki (1-1) is back and he will take on Finland’s Mika Kallio (1-0) at Fight Club Rush 17! The event goes down at Fyrishov Arena in Uppsala, September ninth.

After much success as an amateur Malki made the move to pro at FCR 13 against arch rival Taylan Isik, winning via an impressive TKO in a lop-sided fight. He returned at FCR 16 against Ebrima Fall, losing via first round finish.

Kallio also has an impressive amateur as a representative of the Finnish national team in amateur MMA. He made his pro debut at CAGE 58 against Norwegian veteran Quinten Devreught, winning a split decision after three tightly contested rounds.
