Prediction Comments

Stahl vs. Medvedovski
Andreas Stahl, TKO, R1
Real Steel should make quick business of this fight both being the better fighter who has fought at higher level but also outsizing his opponent quite alot. Sure Medvedovski is a late replacement and has taken fights up to MW but his most recent ones is at FW and earlier in his carrer has fought at BW and FLW. Ståhl is not a small WW and outsized Medvedovski quite alot at the weigh ins. Sure size isnt everything here but feels like Ståhl could break him in half here.

Henriksson vs. Söderberg
Tobias Söderberg, DEC
Interesting fight here, Farm Boy seems like a guy who doesnt mind a brawl but can grapple aswell and comes from a good gym but Söderberg has the experience on his side here with quite an extensive ammy career. I think Söderberg could wrestle his way to a dec here but lets see if it works since he should be the smaller man here since fighting alot at LW even as an ammy.

Berggren vs. Mäki-Ventelä
Theodor Berggren, TKO, R2
Looking forward to seeing Berggren making his return here after some layoff due to injury. He is a fun addition to the swedish/nordic ww scene since being so young and having an all around style and likes to bang. R2 TKO incoming.

Flores vs. Romero Rodriguez
Fernando Flores, DEC
This will be a good test for Flores, seems like Rodriguez could have decent kickboxing and seemed a little bit taller and that could threaten Flores but he also seems to like clinching against the cage were Flores could thrive. Flores grinding out a dec with his pressure and pace.

Back vs. Briar
Nina Back, DEC
Team Sweden here, lets hope Back can bounce back after a tough debut. Will be interesting to see here going pro after a long ammy career.

Mosavi vs. Aljarkas
Benjamin Mosavi, DEC
Had higher expectations from Mosavi before the last BoB but Im still impressed with his biceps and UFC vet Tor Troeng said to MMA-media that he is a physical specimen. Aljarkas looked hyped at weigh ins shoving Mosavi so lets hope the big boys brings some action!

Ringvall vs. Hakkinen
Anton Ringvall, TKO, R2
A good old rivalry between Sweden and Finland is always fun and Ringvall is looking for back to back wins against finns. As Ringvall seems to one of the next up and comers on the swedish ammy scene Im gonna go Team Sweden here but look out for Hakkinen with the sneaky buggy choke.

Hansen vs. Jacobsson
August Jacobsson, DEC
Dont know the fellas here. Coin flip going to the Tap fav here.

Hampusson vs. Ronkainen
Manne Hampusson, DEC
Dont know the fellas here. Coin flip going to the Tap fav here.

Sundberg vs. Huhtamaki
Linnea Sundberg, SUB, R2
Does Huhtamäki have a weakness on the ground? Lets see if theres a third sub incoming. Saw Huhtamäki last time against Vikgren but cant really remember. Only lost to good prospects on the ammy scene though in IMMAF vets Vikgren and Brännfors and I dont know Sundberg so we'll see.
