It was the Finn’s third win in a perfect 2014, where he fought all his bouts on home soil. “I don’t mind where my fights are as long I get good fights. They have been interested in Finnish fighters and they offered me good deal.” comments the Espoon Kehahait fighter.

“I’m gonna push pressure on him and be in top position. Maybe that way there will be a chance to get a sub or tko.”
