Pro Fight at The Zone Evolution
I know there is some questions if I can readjust to the rules of MMA and the answer is yes. If I fight under MMA rules then I’ll fight under MMA rules, it’s a great sport and if I have to cheat the rules… then my opponent is better than me… it’s as simple as that.
Will it destroy Krav Maga? No way! It is 2 different styles with 2 different mindsets, I will take a lot of my Krav Maga techniques away since they are illegal in a MMA fight, this means that it’s a different thing all together. Both styles are fighting but they’re different in mindset and rules. Let’s take the kick to the groin, in a Krav Maga oriented fight that is the first kick I’d use, in the cage it’s illegal. Any one saying anything else… well that’s up to them. I’ve been in Krav Maga since 1994 now and I tried shootfighting the first time in 1998, so I know what I’m talking about here.
I’ll prepare like a sportsman and fight under sport rules, really looking forward to it.
I’ll represent Gladius MMA in the fight and that’s also the academy where I’ll prepare for the figh. With a team like August Wallén, Alexander Gustafsson, Besam Yousef, Anton Mattson, Eddy Bengtsson, Elina Nilsson and all the others at Gladius MMA behind me I’ll be well prepared to say the least!
