The home fighter has totally fought 11 pro and 10 amateur bouts compared to his 11 year younger Norwegian opponent, who has fought five pro and four amateur bouts. Meek has ended all his professional bouts by TKO in the first round except for one where he broke his arm, and this will be his first appearance in Sweden.
Babak Aghavali, CEO Superior Group International:
– Åke is one of the grooviest characters in Swedish MMA. Besides a humble personality, he has a fantastic approach to the sport. In this bout, he will have the experience on his side and he is a tough, technical and a persevere athlete. I’ve never heard Åke turn down a bout and he is the type who doesn’t care about who he fights because he just loves to fight. Emil is an aggressive fighter who delivers 100% during his bouts. The young colourful Norwegians has a very entertaining fighting style, and it it’s going to be interesting to watch him fight for the first time in Sweden.
