Dragan “The Little Wonder” Pešić from Bosnia and Herzegovina, now residing in London, inked a deal with the region’s leading fighting sports promotion Final Fight Championship. The news was published by the fighter himself and then confirmed by his agency Old Skool Fight Management.

Pešić will do his first FFC match in Vienna December 6 and his opponent will be Darko Banović. They will fight in featherweight division.

So far “The Little Wonder” fought for prestigious British MMA promotions such as BAMM and UCFC where he scored four victories and suffered two defeats. His opponent, Darko Banović, made his debut appearance at FFC in a match against Francisco “Croata” Barrio when he was defeated via judges’ decision. However, in the following FFC match he proved what he is made of when he defeated Matija Blažević from Croatia. Banović, originally from Sarajevo, will now fight on home ground since he has been living in Vienna for many years now where he trains at GYM 23.

“I just signed a deal with one of the leading European fighting promotions – FFC – Final Fight Championship. My first test will take place already in December. Unfortunately, I have really little time to prepare properly, but I’m totally hyped about bleeding with my known and unknown colleagues in the ring”, wrote Pešić on his Facebook profile.

In the last couple of years, Pešić has been working hard on his career as well as on the promotion of his club in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he is the main coach and team leader.
