True fans of mixed martial arts know that the best promotions are always going to be a step ahead of the rest in terms of their overall evolution when it comes to what is trending upward. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a Swedish stinger ready to cause the opposition to suffer serious burns at flyweight for Cage Warriors. A professional mixed martial artist since August 2019 and representing Kraft Kampsport, Amir Malekpour owns a 4-2-1 record in six contests comprised of two knockouts, one submission one decision and a no contest. Malekpour fought for Fight Club Rush prior to debuting with Cage Warriors at Cage Warriors 158 in July 2023. He has finished three out of his four overall victories during his time in the professional ranks. Malekpour is 1-0 under the Cage Warriors banner with a single finish under his belt for the organization. All three of his finishes over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter have been inside the distance. At Fight Club Rush 6, he submitted Ilaz Zabeli in the first round via rear-naked choke. Malekpour defeated Safullah Huessini via unanimous decision at Fight Club Rush 12. Then at Fight Club Rush 15, he defeated Mack Promanee via technical knockout in round one.
In his promotional debut with Cage Warriors on the preliminary card of Cage Warriors 158, Malekpour defeated Florian Doskja via TKO in the second round. The victory earned Malekpour the second knockout win of his professional career in addition to his first win under the Cage Warriors banner in the process. Malekpour is one prospect that can make life very difficult for future opponents if they approach the hornet’s nest without seeing the signs at their own accord!
