    A few updates:

    - Team Finland's 135lbs competitor Aleksi Toivonen got eliminated by the American, Jose Torres via a 3rd round stoppage.

    - Team Finland's 145lbs competitor Jari Illikainen got a free pass from the first round. He was supposed to face off against Team Ukraine's Evgeniy Odnorog, but they deemed Odnorog ineligible to be considered an amateur due to having 14 pro bouts on his record. :rolleyes:

    - Team Finland's 155lbs competitor Patrik Pietil

    Aleksi Nurminen will face Team Romania's Stefan Duminica next, so that guy won his first fight aswell.

    You guys should try to find a twitter feed from one of the staff members from your national team. One of the Finnish staff members is tweeting how the Finns do.

    http://www.tapology.com/forum/open/592508- Here's a nice compilation of all the teams and participating fighters. Try to find yours and dig around, cause I'd really love to hear who's done well. I will be very surprised if Zach Fears from the US doesn't make it to the finals. I've seen him fight and he's good.

    Reading around the web, till now the only italians that won in the 1st bout are Alessio Di Chirico and Asterio Lucchesini.
    Alessio Di Chirico defeated a canadian via KO.

    - Team Finland's 170lbs competitor Aleksi Nurminen has advanced to the quarter-finals by slapping on a Rear Naked Choke on Team Romania's Stefan Duminica in the first round.

    - Team Finland's 145lbs competitor Jari Illikainen has also advanced to the quarter-finals by beating Team France's Yohann Ruelle via a triangle choke in just 48 seconds.

    - Team Finland's 125lbs competitor Saku Ronkainen was eliminated by Team Norway's Kristian Skogmo. Apparently Skogmo managed to perform a beautiful comeback by escaping from under Ronkainen, taking his back and slapping on a RNC with less than 5 seconds remaining.

    Thanks a lot for posting! Can you share the source?

    I'm even not sure about those :D
    e.g.: Joao Mimoso lost the semifinal vs. the Maori guy; he competed for USA cauz he's fighting out of USA where he relocated recently from Portugal, but he's registered as portuguese everywhere and probably (but not sure) he doesn't hold the american citizenship, he's just a visa holder.
    The same is for the rest, so isn't easy to understand for what team they're fighting.

    Malaysian and former TUF alumni Allen Solomon Chong wrote on FB that he didn't lost the match vs. Lucchesini cauz the org didn't let him fighting.

    - Team Finland's 170lbs competitor Aleksi Nurminen has reached the finals by defeating Team Norway's Joachim Tollefsen. Tollefsen broke his fist and couldn't continue after being controlled for the first round by Nurminen.

    - Team Finland's 145lbs competitor Jari Illikainen has also reached the finals by defeating Team Belgium's Salvatore Liga via a Rear Naked Choke 2 minutes 16 seconds into the first round.

    Proud of these two. :redface: The finals will be fought tomorrow (Saturday).

    Unfortunately they haven't been updated with the results yet. IMMAF hasn't officially released them so far I think.

    By the way, can I add you into my friends list? Anyone who is as interested in the up-and-comers as I am deserves his spot! :D

    As a part of team Norway i must politely disagree. Tollefsen controlled Nurminen, but was unable to continue due to the broken fist :) But, hey, we are probably both pretty biased. With that being said, I think the Finnish team is great! A lot of good and though fighters! Norway has 3 guys in the final, Kristian Skogmo in Flyweight, Gard Olve Sagen in Middle weight and Eivind Kj

    Out of the 24 competitors that reached the finals, 11 are from Northern Europe.

    More precisely put:

    - 4 from Sweden
    - 3 from Norway
    - 2 from Finland
    - 2 from Denmark

    At this point, no one can deny that MMA in Scandinavia + Finland is definitely on the rise, and has a lot of surging new talent on the way up. It's a damn good time to be a Northern European fight fan, and it'll only get better.
