Finnish light heavyweight fighter Juha Saarinen (7-1) is yet another Nordic fighter to be featured on Bloody Elbow’s scouting report for the year 2012.  FinnFighter’s Gym’s grappler claimed the 10th spot on the Bloody Elbow’s light heavyweight prospect list.

Saarinen will fight next against tough Russian Mikhail Zayats at the Cage 18 in March

Quote from the analysis of Saarinen:

“Despite having a history of run-ins with injury, Saarinen remains one of the best grappling talents in Scandinavia. His long 6’3″ frame is his most effective physical attribute, helping him wrap up the opposition and threaten with savvy submission skills.”
