Allstars Training Center fighter Niklas Bäckström is quickly making a name for himself. The undefeated fighter out of Luleå, Sweden attracted a lot of attention with his recent highlight-reel 15 second front kick stoppage at Europa MMA over Max Coga from Germany who came into the bout at 9 wins and 1 loss.
“I’ve been Googling myself a lot lately” says the featherweight to MMAViking.com about the viral attention his win received. “It was cool to see how many people responded to it”.
Next up for Bäckström could be the UFC. “You can always hope. That is my biggest dream” continues Bäckström, as he is just more concerned about things that are within his control. “I’m going to be the best in the world, just watch me” says Bäckström. See the full video interview here.
