The MMAViking team met with Mikael Nyyssönen (4-0) at MMA Team 300 gym in Tampere, Finland to discuss his upcoming bout against Ville Heikkonen (2-0). Nyyssönen is looking to avenge his training partner Kai Karrar’s recent loss to Heikkonen. “Now it’s time to payback for the sake of our team” says the undefeated Finn.
Nyyssönen, a 3 time veteran with the Cage promotion, looks to solidify his 5th straight win with a victory over the submission savvy Heikkonen, who is also currently undefeated.
“It is no secret that I love the RNC. I’m looking to soften him up with punches and watch for openings” continues Nyyssönen after a fantastic camp with no injuries.
The tilt is set to be the second bout at this Saturday’s Cage 25 bout at the Energia Areena in Vantaa, Finland and will be contested in the 155 lb./70.3 kg lightweight division.
The MMAViking team will be cageside at Cage 25 providing up to the minute coverage with live play-by-play, interviews and photos.
