Juho Valamaa (14-4) will return to action for the third time in four months on August 5th, taking on Aires Benrois at M-1 Challenge 82 at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland.
The Finnish welterweight will look to build momentum after back-to-back submission victories over Zebaztian Kadestam and Anton Radko so far in 2017. Valamaa has only lost twice in his last ten fights and will be looking to make the step up to the M-1 banner.
His opponent, Aires Benrois (10-6) is Portuguese and will be looking to bounce back from two consecutive losses to Abusupiyan Magomedov and Abdul-Rakhman Dzhanaev. He is yet to taste victory outside of Portugal.
Juho Valamaa announced the fight through a video on his Twitter feed.
