Fight Club Rush prides itself in being the proving ground for the Nordic MMA stars of tomorrow. If they have star potential, chances are you will have seen them compete at FCR. That is undoubtedly the case with the latest booking, as light heavyweight prospects Arlind Berisha and Mustafa Atrakchi will debut against each other!
For several years Berisha has been one of Norways hottest prospects. He bulldozed the opposition en route to a gold medal in the 2021 IMMAF World Cup.
The Albanian-Norwegian followed it up by winning an amateur title in Norway's Gorilla Fight Club, as well as becoming double champ in heavyweight and light heavyweight in Cage Warriors Academy South East.
Atrakchi trains at Renyi MMA in the far north of Sweden, alongside top-notch fighters like Fernando Flores and Theodor Berggren. Atrakchi has won a bronze medal in the Swedish National Amateur MMA Championships, as well as a bronze medal in the 2018 IMMAF World Championships, holding a win over Finn Kirill Andreev that has aged like fine wine.
The Nordic light heavyweight scene is awakening, like a slumbering titan, with young prospects ready pick up where Alexander Gustafsson left off.
