Joachim Christensen (14-7) will return to action on February 2 at German MMA Championship (GMC) 18 in Hamburg Germany.  The Dane will face Stephan Puetz (16-4) for the GMC belt.  “I wrote Stephan so he could call me out and he did. I wanted to say hello and wish him a good camp and the best of luck to both of us and no injuries during our camps. I’m so privileged that I have to fight such a great person, athlete and champ.” says Christensen that has a win against German fighter from back in 2014.

“Me and Stephan have a great story together. We meet each other in Denmark, and European MMA 8. Here I won the fight, it was 3 rounds of clinch and some punches back and forth. None of us could take the other one down.  So it ended 3-0 in favor of me. I saw Iit more like 2-1 to me. But it is what it is.” recalls the 40-year-old UFC vet.
