Mark ”The Olympian” Madsen (9-0) aims for 2-0 in the octagon at UFC 248 with another dazzling display of wrestling fit for the Greco Romans! Denmark’s greatest grappler made his promotional debut at home in Copenhagen in September. He wasted absolutely no time, destroying Danilo Belluardo (12-5) utilizing a huge slam to ground and pound for the TKO.
Madsen has truly found his second calling in the cage, you can see his eyes widen when he smells blood in the water. That mean streak makes him ultra aggressive in the cage, as evidenced by 6 stoppages inside round one. The three-time Olympian dating back to 2008 took up MMA for fun a year after the London Games. He ravaged two opponents by knockout and standing guillotine, and now the Dane was hooked!
After reaching the pinnacle of wrestling and coming up just short to his career-long rival Roman Vlasov, Madsen pivoted to train MMA full-time. He returned to the cage in 2018 and has since reeled off seven straight wins in two years.
Mark Madsen can introduce himself to a new crop of fight fans in his first action in North America at UFC 248. “The Olympian” can earn his 7th first-round finish versus Austin “Thud” Hubbard (11-3) on a stacked prelim card on ESPN!
