Brutal FFC 27 open workouts: Brestovac’s coach pays with a tooth
FFC 27 Night of Champions open workouts took place this Wednesday at American Top Team Gym in Zagreb, Croatia. This upcoming event will feature 10 title bouts in MMA and kickboxing with FFC’s best fighters and it is going to take place December 17 at Zagreb Arena.
Mladen Brestovac, Filip Pejić, Darko Stošić, Ivica Trušček, Samo Petje and Jasmin Bajrović demonstrated their fighting skills, answered the media and fans’ questions and announced the biggest FFC event that is to close 2016.
FFC heavyweight kickboxing champion Mladen Brestovac attracted a lot of attention with his trademark high kicks.
“I think the FFC has shown once again how much it had grown. Each event is getting better and better and it should be noted that only small number of promotions managed to organize events both in Europe and in the United States. As for my fight at the Arena, it will be a clash two top fighters that fans should not miss. It will be a spectacle when it comes to kickboxing techniques,” said FFC champion Brestovac.
“Nadam se kako smo ovime dodatno privukli fanove na naše borbe. Osjeti se atmosfera najvećeg eventa u povijesti promocije koja se ovime podigla na još jednu višu razinu.” kazao je Filip Pejić, FFC-ov MMA prvak perolake kategorije.
“FFC did it’s best to keep up with world’s biggest organizations that already have open trainings for years. This is a great way to promote the event and fighters. Moreover, this is a great opportunity for all fans to meet the fighters, to ask them whatever they like and to see some combinations and moves that we came to demonstrate,“ said FFC MMA heavyweight champ Darko Stošić who will defend his belt at the Zagreb Arena for the first time in a rematch with former champ Dion Staring.
“This was a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to the general public. We gave people an insight into our training and preparation for the upcoming matches,” said former kickboxing lightweight champion who will fight for the title again with the fighter he defeated in his champion days, Tigran Movsisyan.
“Honestly, I’m very pleased with this open workout. This is the first time I was a part of an event like this. I have only best words for FFC that organized this, “said Jasmin Bajrović who fights in the only match this December that will not be a title bout. He is to fight Croatia’s Ivan Bilić for No1 contender spot.
“One can feel the atmosphere of a great event. So many people already asked me for a ticket. When I look at all these people here and how it is all seriously and meticulously organized, I realized that this is a level that we have not had here,” said the most active Croatian MMA fighter Ivica Trušček who is to fight Robert Soldić for the welterweight belt.
