Carelia Fight is bringing an international event to Imatra, Finland on September 7th. The promotion announced its 9th card on Facebook today. The headliner was previously announced with one of Finland’s best fighters in Juha Saarinen making a return to the cage. The FFG fighter had MCL and meniscus damage, and “Juice” will head back to the cage after almost a year layoff. The light heavyweight has a 9 win and 2 loss record, and most recently won on Carelia Fight 8 in September of 2012.
The more recent announcements show that the promotion has added more international fighters, with the addition of Swede Christopher Wassberg facing Finland’s Antti Virtanen on the main card.
Also, the once much hyped prospect in Musa Amagov, who has 5 wins and 1 loss, will debut with the promotion. The fighter has amassed a 5 win and 1 loss record, and most recently won in February over Aleksandr Fedorov at BaltFight – Pro 2013.
