BRAVE CF 37 played host to the professional debut of former IMMAF World Champion Bianca Antman today. The Swedish MMA star went up against Veera Nykanen of Finland in a Strawweight bought and came out on top via a third-round knockout.
Both the fighters had a cautious first round which saw them thread carefully after exchanging in the pocket in the initial stage. Nykanen had the better second-round and closed the round on top position as well, possibly giving her a two-round lead over her Swedish counterpart.
Bianca, however, turned things around and got a huge knockout in the third round via a head kick and made sure that she made a statement in her pro-debut.
Prior to the debut, Bianca was 5-1 in her amateur career and had undefeated runs at the IMMAF-WMMAA Oceania Open Championships and the 2019 IMMAF World Championship. Nykanen, meanwhile, came into the fight with a 2-2 professional record.
It would be interesting to see what the future holds for Bianca in the BRAVE Combat Federation roster as there are a lot of interesting options available at the moment. Who do you think Bianca should fight next? Let us know in the comment section below.
