2321

Swede Niklas Bäckström (11-2-1) will head back into the cage on June 24th at the Tanko MMA event. The UFC veteran will be facing Tim Wilde (9-3) in the main event of the UK promotion.

The Allstars Training Center fighter was last in the cage at CAGE 37 back in November, where he broke his hand in a win against Finn Joni Salovaara. The 27-year-old has won three straight bouts since exciting the UFC back in 2015.

Wilde is no stranger to Nordic MMA fans as he was looking good against Norwegian Alexander Jacobsen at Cage Warriors 80, before getting brutally KO’d.
