Swede Niklas Bäckström has booked his next bout, and it will be with the UK based BAMMA promotion. “I am delighted to get the opportunity to sign with Europe’s leading MMA promotion. The talent within the BAMMA Featherweight division is unbelievable and there are no easy fights in this promotion. However, I believe in my abilities 100% and can’t wait to put on a show for the MMA fans across Europe.” says the Allstars Training Center fighter to the promotion upon the announcement first published by MMA Latest.
The featherweight does not have an opponent for his debut, which is expected to be on the BAMMA 26 card at the 3 Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
Bäckström has a 9 win, 2 loss, and 1 N/C record and gained the most attention with a front kick stoppage of Max Coga in 15 seconds and a successful debut in the UFC against Tom Niinimäki.
After dropping his last two fights in the Octagon, the 26 year old submitted Georgi Stoyanov at the Battle of Botnia 5 in November.
