Exclusive : Interview with Magnus Cedenblad (Video)

MMA Viking interviews Magnus Cedenblad shortly before his recent UFC signing became official.  “Jycken” talks from Pancrase Gym in Stockholm, where he discusses his Nordic ranking on MMA Viking, his recent time off from fighting, latest victory, a funny story about his early MMA fights (losses), and how he’s taking his training to the next level.

Cedenblad recently posted on his blog (translated from Swedish):

“At last the UFC!  Well what can I say. I am so ridiculously happy. Is so happy it is finally official! Is so ridiculously big for me, though, while I realize that this is where it starts. Now I train smarter on harder than ever:) 

MMANytt.se also reported that Cedenblad will face Frenchman Francis Carmont, who is 1-0 in the UFC after beating Chris Camozzi by decision in his Octagon debut. Cedenblad (10-3) has decisively won his last seven bouts: four by TKO and two by submission with just one fight going to the judges.

Cedenblad will be one of at least 5 Swedes featured on the UFC on FUEL TV 2.
