“Mad Max” Coga defends his featherweight title

Superior FC featherweight champion Max Coga (17-4-0) is to defend his belt against Spain’s’ Daniela “El Gallega” Requeijo. “Mad Max” has not been defeated in two years and he is to enter the cage with three consecutive wins in Superior FC.

Daniel Requeijo (11-4-0) is tough and versatile, not to mention that he scored five of his wins via KO as well as five via submission, which is a clear proof that he is a complete MMA fighter, just like Max Coga. Requeijo is one of the best known fighters in Spain, while international audience probably noticed him in Cage Warriors. In his first visit to Germany, he is definitely ready to take the belt from Coga. But whether he will manage to make this upset or not, we will find out September 16!

Roberto Soldić’s belt on the line!

FFC, SBC and Superior FC champion Roberto Soldić (10-2-0) is to defend his welterweight belt at the upcoming edition of Superior FC. This member of the UFC Gym Germany so far scored ten wins out of which nine via submission.

This time his opponent will be British MMA fighter Dez Parker (9-6-0) coming out of Preston with the score of nine wins and six losses. Having in mind the fact that he is famous for his armbars, it is of no surprise that he got nicknamed „The Arm Collector“. Parker already fought on big stages such as Fight Nights Global, M-1 Challenge and Cage Warriors Fighting Championship, while this will be his Superior FC debut. There is no doubt that this will be one of the most attractive bouts on the card!

Abus Magomedov in the middleweight title hunt

Abusupiyan Magomedov (17-3-0) and Dan Hope (14-7-0) are to fight for the middleweight title. Magomedov fights both at Superior FC and Final Fight Championship events and he is undefeated in both organizations. This 26-year-old fighter is considered to be one of the most exciting all-rounders in Europe due to his top striking techniques as well as wrestling and grapping skills. He is to step in the Superior FC cage with six consecutive wins via submission!

Alexis “The Furious Kid” Savvidis in another quest for win

Greece’s young prospect Alexis Savvidis (15-6-1) is to step in the Superior FC cage for the second time after a successful debut at Superior FC 17 when he brutally KO’ed Switzerland’s Gabriel Sabo. This was also his 15th win. Moreover, this 22-year-old fighter also fights under the FFC banner and at FFC 28 Greece he made an excellent performance against one of Croatia’s best MMA fighters Filip Pejić.

Superior FC introduces female fighters

Iony Razafiarison (2-1-1) will finally get a chance to fight in the Superior FC cage! Moreover, she will have the honor to fight in the first female match when it comes to this promotion. The French fighter was to make her debut at Superior FC in Dueren, but the match was cancelled on short notice due to her opponents’ unsportsmanlike behavior.

This match definitely promises to be exciting since we will have a chance to see two top female fighters in action! Razafiarison also fights in Bellator where she scored a dominant win over SBG’s biggest prospect Sinead Kavanagh in her latest match.

This time Razafiarison is to face Romania’s dangerous Diana Belbita (9-3-0). This will also mark Belbita’s Superior FC debut, although she has experience on the big stage such as KSW. This top striker from Romania called „Warrior Princess“ will without any doubt make a real war in the cage because she wants to prove herself in Superior FC!

Heavyweight clash

Ugur Özkaplan (2-0-0) just started his professional MMA career and he already scored two impressive wins. In his debut match he defeated his opponent after only 18 seconds in the first round, while in his second match he TKO’ed Almir Salkanović in merely 39 seconds. Despite weighing 120 kg, Özkaplan is extremely agile and knows very well how to use his power.

However, this time he is to fight another opponent from Serbia. Ivan Vičić started his MMA career quiet similarly like Özkaplan. First he scored two impressive wins via stoppages, but then he suffered a couple of losses. Now he is determined to return to winners’ circle and end the unfortunate series of losses. Find out whether Özkaplan is to score another quick win or whether Vičić is to mess with his plans on September 16!
