Andreas Spång has been signed by World Series of Fighting (WSOF). The signing by the Las Vegas based promotion of the “Sweet Swede” was announced today by the organization. The agreement is an exclusive, multi-fight agreements.
The 36-year-old fighter will move up to light heavyweight, as he formerly competed in the middleweight division. “It’s time to find a new hope and get my career going towards the top!” the Swede told MMAViking.com after being pulled from his last scheduled Bellator fight.
“We are thrilled to welcome Andreas – an aggressive and exciting competitor whose career is on the upswing – to the rapidly expanding WSOF roster of world-class talent,” said WSOF President Ray Sefo.
Spang (9-3) is a native of Sweden who resides in Las Vegas and trains under “One Kick” Nick Blomgren. A former amateur boxer who amassed a career record of 15-5, Spang also dabbled in professional kickboxing where he went 1-0 for the once great Japanese kickboxing promotion, K-1.
To date, Spang’s best conquest is perhaps his second round (3:34) KO (punch) of Brian “The Professional Predator” Rogers on April 20, 2012, which was the Nordic KO of the Year in April of 2012. When he enters the WSOF cage for the first time, Spang will be looking to notch his second straight win after earning a unanimous decision over J.A. Dudley on Dec. 5, 2014.
A WSOF fight is expected to be announced soon.
