Finn Veera Nykänen (2-2) and Swede Fannie Redman (1-1) will fight in Stockholm at AK Fighting Championship 2 going down on November 16.


Veera has always had trouble getting fights, and waited 4 years after a loss at IRFA to Iman Darabi in 2014. The GB Gym fighter beat Olga Vlasova (3-2) out of Gladiators Team St Petersburg, Russia, by split decision at Carelia 14 last September but lost in April to Fee Chrystall at Evolution of Combat 4 in a split decision loss.

Redman lost at Cage Warriors 104 in Cardiff at the Viola Arena in February.  The MMA Swedish amateur champion in Judo and MMA who won the 2017 IMMAF European Open lost to the much hyped Cory McKenna (2-1).  Redman is an exciting up-and-comer from Stockholm, who opened her pro career with a very impressive armbar submission over Tiia Kohtamaki in December at Superior Challenge.
