Sadibou Sy is one of PFL MMA’s most spectacular strikers

The 35-year-old, nicknamed “The Swedish Denzel Washington”, has made a name for himself by displaying flashy striking. His spectacular kicking game has led to some quick stoppages in the PFL cage, including a 17 second knockout against UFC vet David Michaud back in 2019.

Lately, Sadibou Sy has been training a lot with the rising UFC star Khamzat Chimaev both in Stockholm and Las Vegas.

Sadibou Sy vs. Nikolay Aleksakhin will be a rematch where both fighters will be looking to settle the score, as their first bout was declared a No Contest following an accidental eye poke during last year’s regular season.
