Ott Tonissaar (10-2) will look to make it four wins in a row as he steps into the cage at Nordic Fighting Championships’ (NFC) first event taking place in Helsinki on May 28th. MMAViking.com has learned that “The Estonian” will face the experienced Daguir Imavov (9-1-1) out of France at the Fight Night Helsinki event.
Tonissaar made some waves in his last bout as he stopped the much hyped Mads Burnell in the second round in a gruelling comeback at Octagon Atheletes 2. The lightweight has won three fights in a row, and the Tartu Fightsport Gym / Primus Fight Team fighter looks to get another long winning streak going. He won six in a row to start his career.
Imavov hasn’t fought since 2014, when he stopped Finn Juha-Pekka Vainikainen in the first round at Cage 28. Before then, he outpointed Jani Ridasmaa. His only loss is to Dane Soren Bak back at EMMA 6 back in September of 2013.
The Finnish promotion recently put together another bout between Finn Juho Valamaa (11-3) and another Frenchman in UFC veteran Mickael Lebout. Timo-Juhani Hirvikangas will also be on the card as a featured fighter.
