Efter förlusten på helgens UFC Fight Night 107 mot tuffa motståndaren ”Irish” Joe Duffy vill Reza ”Mad dog” Madadi gå en sista match och tjugonde MMA-match – på UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Texeira i Stockholm den 28 maj.
Nu berättar UFC-lättviktaren via sin Instagram att han vill gå sin sista match i karriären på UFC Fight Night 109: Gustafsson vs. Texeira, som går av stapeln den 28 maj i Globen.
”Every good story has an end and I have a wish ; that is to fight my last fight and 20th MMA fight at @ufc Sweden, in my hometown Stockholm and in front of my home crowd. May 28th, beautiful weather in Sweden, sold out arena, who is up for a battle?” skriver Madadi.
What an experience, so many feelings it is hard to put in writing. Firstly I want to thank my opponent Joe Duffy @duffymma , not only an amazing fighter but also a real sportsman and gentleman. Our sport needs more fighters like him. I would also like to thank my team at @allstars_gym and No 18 gym, all my trainingpartners, my sponsors my corner coaches @selmanberisha , @davidbielkheden, Andreas Michael, @boris.kuzmic @masseewald and of course my amazing family. They are all part of the team and the reason I can compete in the best league in the world called @ufc. As all of you know we are not getting younger for every day that goes by . I have been in this sport for more than 10 years and have been lucky to compete against the best fighters in the world. Every good story has an end and I have a wish ; that is to fight my last fight and 20th MMA fight at @ufc Sweden, in my hometown Stockholm and in front of my home crowd. May 28th, beautiful weather in Sweden, sold out arena, who is up for a battle?
38-årige Madadi har gått sex matcher för UFC, och kammat hem tre vinster och tre förluster. Innan förlusten mot Duffy avslutade ”Mad dog” Yan Cabral i Rotterdam på UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Arlovski i maj förra året.
Vem skulle ni vilja se Madadi möta i en sista match i Globen?
