“Mr. Finland” has gotten a massive amount of fans and exposure after winning his $50,000 bonus for his UFC debut performance in front of 25,000+ fans at the Tele2 Arena in January.
Expect to see the return of Amirkhani to the Octagon this summer, as he recently tells MMAViking.com that “I think they announce it very soon”.
