Finnish bantamweight prospect Timo-Juhani “Tipi” Hirvikangas (4-1) dominates at ADCC Euro championships and took gold for the third time. After two fights and two fast leglocks later Hirvikangas was crowned as the winner of 66 kilos weight class. Apparently some opponents didn’t felt like grappling with the leg lock wizard which explains the Finn having just two matches this time.

Hirvikangas won his latest MMA fight last Saturday at Carelia Fight 8 where submitted Belgium’s Freddy Debessel with a kimura in the first round.

TJJK’s grappling stars Tero Pyylampi and Janne-Pekka Pietiläinen also enjoyed success at the Championships. Pyylampi won the super stacked 77 kilos weight class and in the 99 kilo class ADCC veteran Pietiläinen took home a bronze medal.
