Officials from VISION today announced that Sweden Niklas Bäckström will face Norwegian veteran Thomas Moon Lee. Bäckström will step on late notice, as he did at Botnia Punishment XI against highly regarded veteran Sergej Grecicho last month.
Thomas Moon Lee is looking to rebound from his loss to James Saville at Botnia Punishment 10 last September. Moon Lee was coming off of an impressive KO victory over former UFC fighter Per Eklund at Vision Fighting Championship 2.
Niklas Bäckström is undefeated in his career with a 4 and 0 record. The young Swede debuted in 2009, and has been improving with each bout.
