Zebaztian Kadestam (7-2) will defend his Pacific Xtreme Combat (PXC) belt on April 8th, and the man trying to take is another Nordic fighter in Glenn Sparv (12-3). The welterweight title fight headlines PXC 53 in Manila. “Yeah I not only see my self challenging Kadestam, I see myself taking that belt. No one else in that division have been able to do it so they called in the cavalry…. me.” said Sparv to MMAViking.com shortly after signing with the promotion.

Since 2012 Sparv have been living and training in Asia and now training at AKA in Thailand. He has a current 5 fight win streak. “PXC got a big following here in Asia and you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, so I’m gonna come in and try to f@#k things up a little bit in my division”

Kadestam is now training in Stockholm at Pancrase Gym, but has put in much of his time recently at Legacy Gym in Asia. His most recent bout was an exciting fight with Hakon Foss at IRFA 9. The Swede however has dominated in PXC, winning all four of his bouts.
