It’s finally time for some Superior action once again as one of Scandinavia’s leading MMA organizations returns with Superior Challenge 24 tonight.

The event goes down in Annexet in Stockholm, Sweden and is headlined by a welterweight title bout. The reigning champion Håkon Foss is back after winning the belt in impressive fashion last year. Now he’ll take on rising prospect Robin “Pretty Boy” Roos in his very first title defence.

Foss, who represents Frontline Academy in Oslo, is as tough as they come. He’s 10-8 as a pro, holds a prior win against former ONE champion Zebaztian Kadestam and has competed multiple times in Cage Warriors before joining Superior Challenge.

The challenger Roos, who’s fighting out of KRAFT Kampsport in Stockholm, has a professional record of 4-3 and is currently riding a two-fight win streak. He’s known for his exceptional Muay Thai skills – especially his devastating leg kicks – and he’s got years of MMA experience, especially if you factor in his extensive amateur career where he won both national and European titles.

Kenneth Bergh goes for 10-0 in light heavyweight title bout

In the co-main event of Superior Challenge 24, Norwegian light heavyweight Kenneth Bergh returns to the cage to take on Ederson Macedo from Brazil. Adding to the intrigue is the fact that the promotion’s vacant light heavyweight strap is up for grabs.

Bergh was scheduled to compete at two different Superior Challenge’s events last year, but both fights fell through at the last second. The last time, Bergh was booked against Macedo and now they will finally get to square off inside the cage.

Bergh holds a professional record of 9-0 with one No Contest. He was a contestant on the 23rd season of The Ultimate Fighter, then fought at Dana White’s Contender Series back in 2019 and was actually signed briefly by the UFC before being let go without even stepping foot inside the octagon since he failed to make weight on short notice ahead of one of the first UFC Fight Island events back July of 2020.

Macedo is 10-6 in his professional debut. He’s coming off a loss against Lee Chadwick in Bellator and will now be making his Superior Challenge debut for his first fight since October of 2020.
