Scandinavia’s heaviest title match
Yosef Ali Mohammad tackles Christian Golcic at Superior Challenge X May 3 in Helsingborg Arena. The match is the organization’s first title fight at heavyweight and a bout between Malmö’s two biggest MMA clubs.
An incredibly exciting match between two very even fighters. They are the same length, same weight, same physique, the same age, have the same record and similar martial arts background. The difference is their fighting style which makes this traditional matching extra interesting with Yosef who grappler and Christian as standing fighter. There will probably be many Malmö residents who will go to Helsingborg to see this match between Malmö’s two biggest MMA clubs. If prestige was not enough, it will also be Superior Challenge’s first heavyweight belt on the line. I can hardly wait until I get to see these two 120 kg giants collide in the cage at Superior Challenge X. – Babak Aghavali , CEO Superior Group International
