I believe these two will be fighting for the belt someday.
He's fighting Miller in July....relax dude...let that happen first.
Would be good, I actually entertained an idea that both Tom Niinim
Those two are the future of the division. Especially Backstrom.
Backstrom should be ranked higher now. Submitting Niinimaki >>>>> wins over Brimage & Holloway.
Backstrom has done nothing yet to be mentioned among the likes of McGregor.
They should match Niinim
Exactly, don't mention cans and the GOAT in the same sentence.
UFC FW division is getting really deep with all the top prospects they're signing recently like Backstrom, Bektic, Skelly, Doo Ho Choi. I wish some of the Bellator guys like Straus and Pitbull would come over, FW would easily be my favorite division.
There you go.
A little early for that.
gotta say I'm rooting for Miller. That Gamburyan loss was bullshit.
He could use a tune up fight first, maybe get the winner of the Cal Clutterbuck/Luca ****i fight.
Sweden got some skills. To early though.
He was actually meant to fight Conor (8-2 at the time) on Cage Warriors Fight Night 2 but Niklas (3-0 at the time) broke his hand a week before the fight so it got cancelled and Conor fought Aaron Jahnsen instead. If Cole Miller pulls out I can almost guarantee Niklas will be banging on Sean Shelby's door cause he's been very vocal about how disappointed he was seeing Conor's rise to fame while he himself couldn't even get a proper fight.
Some curiosa about Niklas:
Niklas lives (lived?) in a horder like home that has been described as "the most disgusting thing ever" by out of town training partners who's (very briefly) lived with him. When guys says they "eat, sleep and train" they usually really don't, Niklas truly does. He moved from his home in the deep north as a teen and turned up at a gym in south of Sweden, no cash in his pockets and no place live. They threw him in with the big guys and he got beat up but still wanted to fight so they let him hang around.
He's considered by many to be a bigger talent than Gustafsson and dominated world sambo champ Sergej Grecicho on one weeks short notice back when he was 1/3 of the fighter he is today and with only 4 wins to his name. That win was both fortunate and unfortunate for his career because it basically meant it stalled. The only reason why it took him this long to get into the UFC is because no legit guys in Europe were willing to step up and fight him until german talent Max Coga came along and got kicked unconscious in 15 seconds.
He ragdolls LW Reza Madadi in training, a great fighter in his own right, who by most accounts went 3-0 in the UFC and has wins against Michael Johnson, a 15 lbs overweight Carlo Prater, Rich Clementi and Cristiano Marcello.
His teammates says he's got the best RNC in the world, a move he's perfected by sitting in front of the TV in his disgusting apartment practicing it on his knee all night. He's been doing this since he was a kid, basically. Niklas is obsessed and borderline psychotic.
And yes, it's only a matter of time before he's sniffing at the belt. Niinim
The real important question is; who wins in a dance-off?
