Danish Olympic wrestler Mark O. Madsen (1 win, 0 losses) now has an opponent for European MMA 9.  The EUMMA promotion has revealed to MMAViking.com that the Dane will face David Defort from Poland.


Madsen made his MMA debut with an easy win over Philipp Henze, picking him up and slamming him to the mat then punching him for a finish in one round at European MMA 6 last September.

While not much is known of the Defort’s MMA credentials, he does have a background in wrestling would should help nullify any grappling advantage Madsen would have.

Injuries have kept Madsen from returning to fight on another European MMA card, where he has a multiple fight agreement in place.

The May 23rd card will take place at the Falconer Salen in Denmark.
