The Superior Challenge 11 bout will be a return to the promotion for Yousef that has fought on SC 9 and 10. The Gladius MMA fighter out of Gothenburg will fight in the heavily populated Assyrian city of Södertälje. “I think and hope i will have a lot of support from my fellow Assyrians/Syrians in Södertälje. Im looking forward to fighting in Södertälje, almost like home.” says the UFC veteran to MMAViking.com.
“I don’t know so much about him really. He seems to be a well rounded guy and likes to fight . Keep my mind focused and do my thing!” says the 29 year old about the Spanish fighter Max Duarte. Duarte trains out of MMA Barcelona, and has won his last three out of four bouts.
“Besam Yousef has a tough opponent as usual. Both fighters prefer standing. Our Swedish-Syrians will undoubtedly be one of the favorites among Södertälje audience.” – Superior CEO Babak Aghavali.
