Jack Hermansson and Simeon Thoresen showed up on the Venator FC III fight card released on Facebook by the always interesting Venator FC President Frank Merenda. Just a day after signing the suspended Rousimar Palhares, currently under WSOF contract, to face Emil Weber Meek, it appears as three fighters training at Frontline Academy in Oslo are slatted for the May 21st card in Italy.
Hermansson will be keeping busy if he is indeed on the card, as the Swede is already set for the April 15 return of Cage Warriors. The middleweight champion is now on a six fight winning streak overall and would be looking at fights in back-to-back months. No opponent was announced.
Thoresen looks to break a four fight losing streak. The first Norwegian to win a fight in the UFC has been fairly inactive and was last in the cage last March. “The Grin” has a chance for revenge for teammate Hakon Foss, as his set opponent is Karl Amoussou who submitted Death at Venator FC 2 in December.
