Alexander Bergman (3-0) comes into Superior Challenge as a great prospect looking to breakout among the pack of potential great Nordic MMA fighters. With both Swedish national championships in submission wresting and freestyle wrestling, Bergman is a fast and athletic competitor with unlimited potential transitioning to MMA. “My focus is now 100% on the MMA game. Of course I still train wrestling as a tool for MMA.” says the middleweight to MMAViking.com on fight week for Superior Challenge 12 in Malmö.
“It feels great to finally make the next step in my MMA career with Superior. I’m happy with this opportunity.” says the Swede that will face Italian Simone Tessari (7-5) in his promotional debut with Superior Challenge. “Tex” will come into the bout with four times as many fights, but has been on a roller coaster in terms of wins and losses. He started out with seven straight stoppages, and has now dropped five straight bouts, including his last just last month at Extreme Fight for Heroes.
“I have long wanted to see the young Bergman compete in Superior Challenge and now he is matched against the most experienced opponent in his career. Tessari is just like Alexander a grappler, but his heavy hands and has finished several opponents. Simone’s experience will be put to the test when he meets our tough Viking.” Babak Ashti, Founder Superior Group International
Bergman has been easing into MMA, taking just one fight a year in his pro MMA career that started in 2012. He has finished his last two opponents, including his last at Trophy MMA 4 against Linus Andersson with a rear-naked cho
“I see myself as an explosive fighter and I like to put pressure on my opponents to break their will.” says the aggressive fighter about his in cage style, which will be on display at Superior Challenge 12 in Malmö this Saturday at the Baltic Hall.
