Fight Club Rush 14 is set to serve as the promotions return to Västerås on November 26th and a high-octane bout was just added.
Hecher Sosa (3-1) will return for his third FCR fight to take on surging Bilal Tipsaev (4-1-1)!
While there are many well credentialed fighters in FCR Sosa is without a doubt one of the most. He is a three time Spanish amateur MMA champion, won gold at the 2019 IMMAF African Open and has bronze medals in both the IMMAF European and World Championships.
The Spaniard made his pro debut in February, rattling off two straight wins via finish. He then made his FCR debut against none other than promotional staple and Swedish champion Jonny Touma, at FCR 10. Sosa took an early lead, gave his opponent no safe quarter, winning via first round knockout.
Following that Sosa was pitted against Örebro Fight Gyms Karlen Minasian in a title eliminator bout at FCR 12. Sosa got a little too over-eager, playing into his opponents counter heavy style, and was finished in the first round.
Tipsaev is one of those who is closest to Khamzat Chimaev, often called the UFC stars' cousin, though the relation is not as such. He burst onto the Swedish amateur MMA scene in 2018, turning heads with impressive performances.
In May of 2019 Tipsaev made his pro debut and he immediately became a force to be reckoned with, winning two straight fights via TKO.
Tipsaev then debuted with Brave CF, starting strong but waning slowly, and eventually losing to Matiss Zaharovs in a shocking upset. Following a controversial draw to Irishman Glenn McVeigh, Tipsaev made his FCR debut, defeating Danish prospect Frederik Skov Strauss via decision.
In his most recent outing, Tipsaev got revenge on McVeigh, winning a clear-cut decision over his rival at FCR 13.
FCR's bantamweight division is undoubtedly one of the strongest in Northern Europe - something this latest match up proves.
