Scottish Fighting Championships yesterday announced the main event for its April 28th event in Glasgow. Taking the spotlight of SFC 6 will be Swede David Häggström, who looks for a strap following in the footsteps of fellow Swedes Jonatan Westin and Martin Svensson who won belts in main event bouts at SFC 5.

Häggström Seeking a SFC Belt

Häggström eyes are on the bantamweight SFC belt, however battle-tested UK veteran James Doolan, a raucous local crowd, and five rounds stand in his way.

The Dinky Ninjas fighter is 16-7-2 in his career dating all the way back to 2003. Doolan secured his first victory, after a 4 fight slide (two losses and two draws) last November at UK’s Olympian MMA Championships 12 with a first round submission over Dino Gambatesa. One of his recent fights was against top Nordic bantamweight Sirwan Kakai (who has been a training partner with Häggström), where he lost by second round submission.

The Ren-Yi Fight Camp fighter rebounded after his submission loss at the hands of Dino Gambatesa last July with a victory over UK veteran Greg Knapp. The win was via TKO (punches) in the first round of Sweden’s Battle of Botnia 4 “Northern Lights”, which has put Häggström in a position for a title.

The event again takes place at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, and SFC 6 “Uprising” is sure to be another sellout. Another highly anticipated bout is between Brian Hyslop and Dec Williams. The two will battle for the flyweight belt in the co-main event.
