Undefeated Swedish UFC strawweight Josefine “Thunder” Knutsson will be back in the octagon for her second fight on June 15 at the Apex in Las Vegas. That’s according to Frontkick’s sources close to the situation.

She will take on promotional newcomer Julia Polastri, the same opponent she would have faced in the beginning of March. However, back then, the Swede was forced to pull out due to a back injury.

“It’s gonna be a better, faster and stronger ‘Thunder’ in the next fight,” coach Sanja Trbojevic said in a recent Instagram story. “I feel sorry for all the strawweights out there.”

“You will see a whole new Josefine in her next fight. It’s just crazy how hard she trains.”
