Terraform - Do you think we will ever see Gunnar nelson vs Simeon Thorenson ? Phone Post

This would be a great match up between two awesome grapplers. Thoresen got KO'ed by Seydina Seck in the spring but quickly bounced back and has won his last two. 
 
We talked to Gunnar's manager and father Halli Nelson recently. Check out the interview

Cool, it will be nice to see him back, I take what his dad says with a pinch of salt as he talks as if Gunnar has actually achieved in MMA, he sounds like Rashad Evans (who at least is a former champion and ranked #1).

it would be nice to see him take a tune up fight and then say "right lets have it, who does everybody think is the best at my weight, line them up and ill take them out one by one until the UFC calls me".

Thats what I would expect from somebody with that much hype around him but we will see it it is just hype or not I guess in 2012.

Since Gunnar has been training with the likes of GSP at Renzo's, I think they have a pretty clear understanding where he stands in MMA compared to the top talent. And this is the reason why they are taking their time and making sure he is ready when they move on to big stages

That would make sense as they were accused of ducking Thorenson and when I mentioned it I was accused of being thorensons UK based manager ! But the bullshit they came out with when they could have just said he isn't ready for that test yet. No shame in that . Jimi manuwa just did the same when he rejected the UFC contract . Phone Post

In terms of pure grappling skill, Gunnar could hang with any welterweight in the UFC right now but there's nothing wrong with taking their time to build up his complete skillset because he's still only a young guy.

I trained with him a fair bit a few years ago when he was in Manchester at SBG. He was a purple belt at the time and an absolute beast even then.

Dropped in to a session when I was back in Manc for UFC 105 I think it was, and him and Arni Isaksson were sparring. It was better viewing than 99% of MMA fight I've seen.

 Cage Challengers II Card Shaping Up
Cage Challengers II event will take place on the 3th of December in Riihimäki, Finland. Cage Challengers events are a bit smaller than the promotion’s main events in the Helsinki metropolitan area. These events serve as a platform for up-n-coming fighters to show their skills in a professional fighting environment. Of course there are always some experienced veterans on the card for the fight fans. Challengers II event is headlined by Bellator signee Janne Tulirinta and Stockholm Shoot’s Claes Beverlöv.

 Thanks mate.
They got a big card in Denmark this saturday. Rosfort faces Brazil's Fernando Paulon in the main event. Mikkel Parlo vs Gregor Herb is also an awesome MW fight. Loads of very talented up-n-comers on the card: Nicolas Dalby, Glenn Sparv (Finland), Andreas Stahl (Sweden) etc.

Those ring girls are hot indeed.

Great to see Rosfort back in action - he was throughly dominated by Veach at CW and I think that had an affect on him but he's a great fighter so hopefully he comes back with a bang.

Parlo vs. Herb is a good fight. Seen Gregor fight a few times and he's strong with good submissions. Interesting to see how that one pans out. Didn't Cage Fight Live stream it live last time? Would be interested in seeing it.

martin kampmann vs thiago alves on march 3rd. would be perfect for sweden...

i thought they'd book madadi for their debut in sweden, but if he fights on january 20th, i don't think he's going to be ready for march 3rd.

so does this mean the swedish event is probably going to happen in april instead of march?

Had a brief chat with the SC guys about UFC in Stockholm - great for Swedish MMA but maybe not so much for them, which is a huge shame.

Early April is the latest word. We put together an up to date report on how things are progressing with UFC in Sweden. You can find it at MMAViking.com

Probably true for their spring event but in the long run I'm sure UFC holding an event in Sweden will benefit local promoters too. The amount of publicity UFC will get in the Nordic media will reflect to local promotions too. Or at least I hope that it does.

I'd love if you guys would tag the news based on a country as well. So I could easily find all the news of Finnish events and fighters.

 I'm blonde and get angry so I think I'm genetically linked to Nordic vikings.
