UFC and Pride veteran David Bielkheden (19-12) finally has an opponent for this month’s Superior Challenge 11, which finalized the card which will go down at the AXA Sports Center in Södertälje, Sweden. The Brazilian Swede, that now prefers ‘Buster’, will face France’s Florent Betorangal (16-10) in a featured event on November 29.
Bielkheden has been on three previous Superior Challenge cards, and most recently outpointed another UFC veteran in Besam Yousef at SC 10 in May. The 35 year old is on a two fight winning streak, and has aspirations to get back into the UFC.
Betorangal is no newcomer to the MMA game, as he turned pro back in 2007 as he took on another Sweden based fighter in Assan Njie, where he lost by arm triangle. The Muay Thai striker once had a 7 fight win streak and has fought in both BAMMA and Cage Warriors. He last fought in Ring of Fire 3 in May, where he outpointed Joao Bonfim.
