Babak Ashti, Founder of Superior Group International:
I think MMA fans often ponder on who is Sweden’s premier fighter in each weight class, so therefore I think matches between two outstanding Swedes are very interesting. Papy is one of Superior’s original fighters, and has always been incredibly popular and well-liked. Bruno is an enormously dangerous grappler who I think was strongest when he competed in the middleweight division. I am not for extreme dieting before the game and I think middleweight suits both very good. It’s an incredibly tight game between two very physically strong men and merited Grapplers with KO power.
