Highly sought-after Swedish prospect Papy “Makambo” Abedi has signed with the UFC.

Abedi’s manager, Manos Terzitane, Sunday confirmed to Sherdog.com that the 32-year-old judo black belt has inked a four-fight deal with the American promotion.

The Kongo-born fighter stands undefeated at 8-0 and has posted finishes in all but one of his fights, including five knockouts and two submissions. Despite previously competing at middleweight, Terzitane told Sherdog.com that Abedi will drop to 170 pounds for his Octagon debut.

The grappling version of Manhoef.Re: Eating a big mac at a bodybuilding contestEating foods high in the glycemic index like white bread (big mac) and candy right before the competition will spike your insulin levels.The theory is that your veins will pop out, giving you a more vascular look right at competition.
