    I was actually suprised when I saw his picture. Not what I was expecting from Sweden. He looks ripped tho! Never heard of him before but he looks like a problem for some 170 pounder's.

    Sounds like a beast to me. I look forward to his debut.

    It is always interesting to watch non American/Canadian/Brazilian/british fighters in UFC.

    I wish UFC hire more fighters from other countries, 90% of the roster are Americans or Brazilians.

    I was surprised when I saw his picture, too. Not only that but I was thinking he was a LHW but he's a WW?!

    From the sound of his record, I can't wait to see this guy.
