    Which one is the biggest Scandinavian fighter?
    Consider their full career, not just recent fights.
    It would be amazing if Kampmann stood as MW and Gus dropped a division. Probably a blockbuster in Sweden or a debut card in Denmark (tho I doubt their fanbase is big as Swedish).

    It's a close call between Kampmann and Gustafsson. I'd probably say Kampmann by a slight margin if you're talking about their whole careers, but I think Gus will surpass him soon. Right now he is definitely the biggest Scandinavian fighter considering he just had a title shot (and a very impressive one too).

    Conor McGregor. Yeah, maybe he's from Ireland, but he's so damn great he should count also as a Scandanavian.

    I would say Gus. A week earlier, twas Kampmann but even though he is a recognizable veteran, the fight with Jones and the performance Gus put on, Gus. Especially, if Jones keeps getting better and demolishes all other competition.

    Gus impressed me the most out of the three even before the Jones fight. I'm a fan of his since I saw his fight with Hamill, watched his previous fights and was very proud of him this week. Kampmann is a hell of a fighter but has problems with defense and focus and Hansen's career I'm not very familiar with so I can't judge.

    Gustafsson is now the best nordic fighter.

    As a Norwegian, i want to point out that Hansen was the scandinavian mma renessanse man. :)

    Like 5 years ago it'd probably be Hansen easily. Now he barely fights, if I'm remembering correctly.

    Hansen will always have the old school cult following, and Kampmann is a fan favorite, but I think Gus is the shining star of the pack.
