David Haggström (7-1), Bantamweight, Sweden

Renyi Fight Camp’s David Haggström has stepped up  his game lately like his teammates Andreas Ståhl and TUF contender Tor Troeng.

Haggström’s last two wins have catapulted him to top five Euro bantamweight status. First in April of 2012 Haggström got a decision win after five rounds of action over James Doolan on his home turf in Scotland. In his latest bout Haggström finished Lithuanian Artemij Sitenkov with strikes at the Vision FC 5 show in December 2012.

As a fighter Umeå based Haggström is an allrounder with a preference to grappling. He is currently ranked #2 on the Nordic Bantamweight rankings and #5 on the Euro rankings.
