Countdown to UFC in Sweden : Meet Magnus Cedenblad

MMA Viking continues its “Meet the Fighter” series with Swede Magnus Cedenblad. He faces France’s Francis “Limitless” Carmont, yesterday’s featured fighter.

Magnus “Jycken” Cedenblad (10-3), Sweden


Swedish middleweight Magnus Cedenblad has been fighting pro since 2007. Cedenblad’s pro career got off with a rocky start as he lost his first two fights (see video interview below), but since then he has been highly successful going 10-1 in his last 11 bouts.

Cedenblad, who represents the Pancrase Gym of Stockholm, comes to his UFC debut riding a seven fight win streak with most of the wins coming over mid-level competition in the Euro circuit.

MMA Viking Interview

As a fighter Cedenblad could be described as an allrounder with a preference to ground fighting. Cedenblad likes to take his opponents to the ground and punish them with strikes from the top position. He fights aggressively with an aim to finish which has led to him going full rounds just once in thirteen bouts.

30 year old Cedenblad is a big boy for his weight class: 192 cm tall and diets down from close 100 kilos to middleweight weight limit.  For this fight he has been honing his skills at the famed American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, in addition to training at VBC in Stockholm.

    Besides, Magnus is not only a very charismatic fighter, but also a great instructor. This summer he’ll teach a one-week true beginner’s class in MMA at summer camp MMA Academy. If you’re interested in learning all the basics from a UFC pro, this is your chance :) Most welcome!
