A thunderstorm is brewing and heading the way of YOKKAO 28 and it’s looking to be yet another electrifying show for the fans at Bolton Macron Stadium.

The thunderstorm comes in the form of 21 year old Swedish female fighter, Josefine Lindgren Knutsson, who will be making her YOKKAO promotions debut this 15th October 2017. Knutsson goes by the fighting nickname of “Little Thunder” and after making a name for herself in her Nordic homeland, she has set her sights on the rest of the European territories. She currently trains and fights out of the Allstars Training Center in Stockholm, Sweden, under her coach, Sanja Trbojevic. The gym itself is a recipient 2013 Gym of the Year in the Nordic MMA Awards, with some of the best fighters of the region. Knutsson has a solid record of 14 fights with 12 wins and 2 losses.

For her first fight, she will be facing none other than YOKKAO’s most prolific female fighter of the moment, Amy Pirnie. Pirnie has been an unstoppable force with 3 consecutive wins at YOKKAO 18, 20 and 24, all held at the Macron Stadium. Pirnie’s most recent achievement is a dominant win for the ISKA World Strawweight Title fight in June this year and she will be looking to follow up with another triumphant performance at YOKKAO 28.

Will Pirnie ride the lightning and continue her winning streak at YOKKAO 28 or will her reign end prematurely under pressure from a thunderous debut by Knutsson? Pirnie is known to always put up a great show that easily rivals her male counterparts and in either case, this will be one of the most exciting fights to look forward to come 15th October.
