Sherdog’s long-time contributor Tim Leidecker has identified two top upcoming fights in September.  Although they didn’t make the official Sherdog “10 Tussles Worth Watching” list, two fights were on his radar in the Nordics, including hometown favorites Jarkko Latomäki fighting in Finland and Kenneth Rosfort in Denmark.

Nordic Fights Among the Best in The World

“Those are two awesome fights with four great lightweights.” Leidecker tells MMA Viking

September 14
Jarkko Latomaki vs. Piotr Hallmann
Botnia Punishment XII
Seinäjoki, Finland

September 15
Kenneth Rosfort vs. Hyram Rodriguez
European MMA “Casino Fight Night 2″

The list takes into “the biggest names possible that are currently fighting outside of the big leagues, but other points I look for are for example: Is the fight contested at a high level? Is it likely going to be competitive? Are the fighters in their prime?”  MMA Viking agrees with these selections.
