Tobias Harila (5-1) will make his return to the cage against Fernando Flores (6-6) in his home town of Västerås on February 29th at Fight Club Rush 6. The bout was announced by the promotion today.
After turning pro in May of 2018 the Västerås Fight Club fighter “Bad Intention” had 6 fights in the next 9 months, amassing a five win and one loss record before everything came to a halt. “The recovery is going great, and I can really feel the difference between this time and last time” says the 25-year-old to MMA Viking about his injured hand, and subsequent surgeries, that has kept him out of the cage since his Round 1 stoppage in January at Fight Club Rush 4.
Harila stopped Philip Raeburn (8-8) to win the pro featherweight Adrenalin belt in Swansea, Wales in December.
“El Toro” trains out of Renyi in Umeå. Flores had lost three fights heading into the main event against 13 win and 2 loss Pietro Menga in his his backyard in Stockport, England, but it was the Swede that got the win by decision at Ultimate Cage Championship in the biggest win of his career in May.
Flores was supposed to face another Swede in Frantz Slioa at AK FC 2 on November 16, but the TUF fighter became ill the day of the fight.
The featherweight matchup will be the main event of the card.
