Heikki Tiilikka: The opponent looks like to be a strong fellow. I don’t have specific game plan for this fight other than to pick my shots on the feet and stay out of harm’s way. I had a really good training camp at Oulu. Preparation for this fight has gone better ever before.
Antti Virtanen: Training has gone well. I have had the opportunity to spar with some really tough guys. I’m going to keep my cool in the fight and rely on my own strengths.
Claes Beverlöv: Preparation went just great. I feel very excited and I just wanna compete.
Rafael Domingos: I’m very excited for this fight. I’ve been preparing at the Oulun Kamppailuklubi and everything has gone really well. I’m happy that I get to fight in Finland like my master Demian Maia did early in his career. I will represent Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in the cage and I’m going to use it.
Stay tuned for live results tomorrow and event report with results on Sunday!
