Dane Mark O. Madsen (3-0) will face UK’s Dez Parker (9-8) on the upcoming Danish MMA Night card on June 9 at Brøndby Hallen in Denmark. The matchup was announced today at the new promotion’s press conference.

The greco-roman Olympic silver medalist won his three fights by finish in the first round, showing complete dominance and a willingness to throw big punches.  He got a TKO in Round 1 at European MMA 6 in 2013 and a submission at European MMA 9 in 2014. In his last bout, he only needed 24 seconds to finish Swede Matthias Freyschuss (1-1) at MMA Galla 4 in January.

This will be Madsen’s first fight since dedicating himself 100% to MMA. “For a long time I have been dreaming and aspiring to MMA. It has grown bigger and bigger and I know there is an expiration date and I realize it has to be done before it is too late.”
