Over the past few years Fight Club Rush has become a proving ground for the most exciting, rising prospects in Northern Europe - a notion that has been strengthened with the latest fight announcement.
FCR officials just recently announced a bantamweight bout that will see the pro debuts of stand ut amateurs Oskar Jaskari (0-0) and Abdulaziz Hussein (0-0). The bout goes down at FCF 12 on May seventh and will be broadcast on fcrmma.com.
Jaskari trains out of Redline Training Center in Malmö under the tutelage of UFC veteran Hamid "Akira Corassani. He has been a staple of the Swedish national team in amateur MMA.
As a long time standout on the amateur scene Jaskari has defeated the likes of Jonny Touma and Devin Radianu.
Jaskari most recently competed in the IMMAF World Championships in amateur MMA. He made it to the finals but ended up losing a decision in the pivotal bout. The young talent still left with a silver medal after several impressive performances.
Hussein has a solid background in Greco-Roman wrestling but was relatively unknown as a whole on the Swedish MMA scene. That changed at FCR 11 when Hussein was pitted against undefeated rising star Ali Al-Jasim. Hussein never lost his cool despite his opponents pressure and he instead countered beautifully, finishing Al-Jasim via TKO.
While this may be their first pro fight expect fireworks as these explosive fighters meet in the FCR cage.
