This past Saturday, Swedish MMA fighter Robin Roos became the new Superior Challenge middleweight champion as he stopped Kevin Fryer with a brutal second-round TKO.
Roos had an active 2023 with fights in Fight Nation Championship and UAE Warriors before entering the Superior cage in Stockholm.
In arecent interview with Frontkick’s sister site Maximum Sports, the newly crowned champion opened up on the feeling of winning the belt.
“I didn’t feel any real pressure from the title fight, I knew the same thing that I always know going into a fight; if I live up to my potential there is just a matter of time until my opponent breaks down and I walk out as the winner. The belt is just a bonus.” Roos said.
“I don’t feel the ‘Champ Life’ yet, it’s a bit of a surreal feeling. As always after a fight there is a certain feeling of emptiness. But I’m so happy to be able to call myself a champ!”

The feared striker Robin Roos expected his British opponent to try to get the fight to the ground. However, the Swede had no intention of fighting on Fryer’s terms.
“I’m very happy about how the fight turned out since I controlled it from the first to the last second,” Roos explained. “There are always things you can do better but I feel I broke him down calmly and methodically before delivering the death knell. With other words, I’m very satisfied with my performance.”
