Very nice, the best of luck with the joint project. And I had somehow missed that the UFC had decided on Sthlm instead of Malmö which is great news for me personally, thanks for bringing it to attention.

Yeah I agree. Stockholm is so much better (for all of us Finns)!

Nordic Fight of the Month: October 2011 – Niinimäki vs Frachey
There were loads of great fights in the Nordic MMA events during October and it was a tough job to pick just one. It the end we ended up picking the featherweight bout between Finland’s Tom “Stoneface” Niinimäki and France’s Johnny Frachey. The fight was for the Cage Featherweight belt and took place on October 8th at the Cage 16 event in Espoo, Finland.
Ranked #2 in the European Featherweight division Tom Niinimäki has been on a verge of breakout for a while already. Niinimäki came into this fight riding a six fight win streak. Before this fight Niinimäki had been away from the cage for almost a whole year, mainly due to lack of opponents willing to fight him.
Frenchman Johnny Frachey stepped up to the plate and signed for this fight. Frachey also came into this fight with five consecutive wins under his belt and feeling confident that he could beat Niinimäki.
How did the fight turned out? See for yourself at MMAViking.com

Cool, good stuff. Nice to have all local news in one place, I didn't even know Sweden was being considered for november. Seems like it won't be long now until we get to see the UFC in Stockholm...

Take note that Anton Kuivanen is so ripped that even his solar plexus is pointy.

Some great fights on Cage 17 - shame everybody is just talking about the UFC card.

What do you think of Puhakka vs. Winner at BAMMA 8 mate?
