    Andreas is a great wrestler. Seen him many times training and fighting, and he has a very controlling top game and impressive grappling. Can't wait to see him on the next level!

    5 decisions against a bunch of nobodys in 9 fights does not sound promising.

    Set up an account just to make this thread?

    He already have a fight against Alex Garcia(10-1) 7th December. That will be very interesting.

    The most interesting thing is that he is the first swedish fighter with a solid wrestling background in the UFC. Greco-Roman have a great history here in Sweden with many top level wrestlers during history.
    Can we integrate that history with our boxing history UFC needs to watch out. :)

    Garcia seems like a beast man. Very explosive and athletic. Big power in both hands and takedowns. Not an easy first fight for St

    Isnt Ilir Latifi a decorated wrestler? Or is it his brother I'm thinking of?
    I swear I read that before he made his debut.

    What's your definition of "many"?

    I know you're biased because you're a swede but you're taking it too far here. Sweden does alright given its size and LACK of interest in wrestling but seriously we havent had MANY top wrestlers throughout history. We had a few but let's not exaggerate.

    81 olympic medals in wrestling (only Sovjet and USA have more gold medals) Per capita thats off the charts, and some knowledge regarding training and techniques should be preserved in the national wrestling culture.

    ..
    Madadi and Illir have wrestling bakgrounds, but its nice to see more getting into The ufc
