Fight Night Finland (FNF) will take their show to Helsinki, for a star studded Helsinki Fight Night show. While an injury will prevent UFC veteran Anton Kuivanen from competing on this weekend’s Cage 26 card, he is committed to being ready for the Fight Night Finland card on June 14. FNF officials announced today the main fighters mostly from Team MMA Finland that will be on the card.
The promotion most recently put on Karkkila Fight Night on March 15, and now will battle at the Pasila Sports Hall in a rare Nordic event held in June.
For the most part, opponents have not been set for the Finns. MMA veterans Kuivanen, Kai Puolakka, and “Tipi” Hirvikangas will be big draws for the Helsinki crowd. In addition Mika Hämäläinen and Teemu Packalen will take their unbeaten records into the cage. Opponents for the announced fighters have not been established. The card will also include two Muay Thai bouts. See the released card below:
