Betsafe Ambassador Hermansson is a Favorite to Get Third Straight Win

For Nordic MMA fans, the card features two vikings in Danish heavyweight Christian Colombo and Swedish middleweight Jack Hermansson. The Danish heavyweight Colombo will face-off against late replacement Brazilian Golm that will step in after “Godzilla’s” original opponent was flagged by the anti-doping agency. The 25-year-old Golm only has 5 professional fights, but it includes all first round stoppages. The 37-year-old Colombo is still seeking his first UFC win after a draw in his UFC debut against Jarjis Danho and his most recent loss to Brazil’s Luis Henrique. Hermansson heads to Sao Paulo to take care of “un-finished business.” The Betsafe Ambassador has won three of four bouts in the UFC with his only loss coming in his bout with Cezar Ferreira at UFC Fight Night 100 in Sao Paulo last October, which the Norwegian-based Swede has not forgotten. The Brazilian Santos is 33 years old and will have the advantage of a home crowd behind him. He has a 7 win and 4 loss record in the Octagon, and two wins in a row with victories over Gerald Meerschaert and Jack Marshman.

At the time of publishing article Hermansson is a 1.77 favorite and Colombo a 1.59 favorite. Click on any Betsafe ad on this page for an amazing sign-up offer.
