Valhall Gym’s Kim Thinghaugen (4-1) got attention becoming the first Nordic fighter to land a twister submission in his last outing at Warrior Fight Series 5. “Kimbo” is now set to step back in the cage at Contenders Norwich 15 taking place on June 4th.
The twister might be once in a lifetime event. “It’s awesome to have that on my record, didn’t really think about it until later when people told me how special that victory was.” says Thinghaugen.
The Norwegian based fighter will be facing a very experienced Jefferson George out of England. The Morefire Icon Jiu-jitsu fighter has 5 wins and 6 losses, but fighting tough fights in mostly the BAMMA promotion. The lightweight is on a three fight losing streak, but against established names such as Marc Diakiese and Brad Wheeler.
