Headlining EuroFC 01 is a clash between two UFC veterans. Tom Niinimaki (21-8-1) returns to his homeland of Finland, where he is undefeated in almost 10 years, to square off against the in-form American Johnny Bedford (22-12-1) who comes into this fight off the back of three stoppage victories. A hotly anticipated heavyweight rematch serves as the co-main event of the evening as Scandinavia’s number 1 ranked heavyweight Yosef Ali Mohammad (6-2) gets his chance to avenge a KO loss to Brazilian Fernando Rodrigues Jr. (9-2).
Other notable fights on the card include popular Finnish fighter Juho Valamaa (12-3), Sweden’s Andreas ‘Real Steal’ Stahl (10-2), plus Finns Toni Tauru (10-3-1), and Aleksi Mantykivi (9-4) versus Dane Soren Bak (7-0).
