Myllynen will try to snap a three fight losing streak. The RNC Sports Club fighter recently lost in close split decision at GIT Crimea 2017 to Dmitry Berezin. Prior to that, he lost to Jani Salmi by submission at FNF 13.
“Myllynen is much more experienced and great cardio. Most of his wins have come by TKO, so he loves to punch in stand up, clinch and on the ground. Mikkilä is student of BJJ black belt Greger Forsell and his strengths are in wrestling and ground game. Mikkilä is big LW and making the weight has often been difficult. Mikkilä has used a lot of time with stand up coach Maukka Cederlöf, so it is nice to see game plans of these guys.” says Olli Hartikainen, FNF Matchmaker.
Mikkilä will look to have two pro fights in one calendar year for the first time in his pro career. The Sports Academy No1 fighter beat Marcus Peltonen at FNF 14 in May.
