“I have always been dedicated and for me amateur mma doesn’t mean much. For me it’s pro mma or nothing. I have been in the world class in one of the hardest sports in the world, I have a lot experience when it comes to training-system, competitions experience, analyzing and routines. These things take time to learn but when you have all this tools, you will develop fast. That’s why I believe I’m ready for pro MMA.” says Nielsen about his decision.
“Punching it’s a huge part in this sport so for me it just felt normal.”
“Thailand was very nice and I love the climate there. Sometimes it’s good to go away and just eat, train and sleep. I was in Superpro Samui and I have good contact with some of the coaches there and they helped and focused a lot on my training.” says the Nordic fighter about escaping the winter for some training.
“I really looking forward to this show and this fight. I believe I will end the match in 1 or 2 round but we will see. All I can say is that I’m ready.”
