Muay Thai sensation Christopher Bajo returns to face National Team talent Daniel Karlsson


As Fight Club Rush awaits the conquering of yet another new market in Uppsala, where FCR 17 will be held on September ninth, a new, exciting match up has just been announced: Christopher "El Bandido" Bajo (3-2) vs Daniel Karlsson (2-1)!

Malmö's Bajo is not just a skilled striker, but he won the Swedish Championships in Muay Thai before making the move to MMA in May of 2021.

While Bajo came up short against FCR 17 co-headliner Christian Stigenberg, he didn't let that deter him. The striker showed his prowess on the ground, defeating fellow Muay Thai champ turned MMA fighter Abdallah Habib via first round submission.

Following his first pro MMA win, Bajo finished Moe Ahmadi via vicious ground strikes at FCR 10, and then added yet another win to his resumé after choking out Demezode Agba – once again in the first round.

Bajo lost his following fight via submission and opted to return to the Muay Thai ring where he has scored emphatic wins over Mustafa Aboutaka (who went on to win the 2023 Muay Thai World Championships) amongst others.


Karlsson is a seasoned fighter who has experienced much success on the amateur scene. Aside from successfully representing the Swedish National Team in amateur MMA, Karlsson is also a two time Swedish MMA champion and has defeated the likes of Robin Enontekiö.

Karlsson made his pro debut against countryman Daniel Bergström in December of last year, winning via TKO. After that he faced hardened finn Tommi Leinonen at FCR 15, winning a split decision after three hard fought rounds.

In his latest outing Karlsson debuted in Cage Warriors, facing Italian IMMAF sensation Dario Bellendi. The fight didn't go Karlssons way, as he was forced to tap out to a rear naked choke in the first round.

Karlsson will now put his top-level amateur experience to the test to face Bajo – a striking sensation who has secured all his finishes on the ground. Both fighters are eager to re-enter the win column, but only one will leave the cage with a "W".
