Gunnar Nelson makes MMA return

Share it

Iceland’s 21-year-old grappling sensation Gunnar Nelson will be returning to MMA for the February-13 BAMMA (British Association of MMA) event in London.

The welterweight made waves in the submission grappling world after overcoming Jeff Monson and David Avellan to take 4th in the absolute division of the 2009 ADCC event in Barcelona. Rewarded for the performance with a black belt by his master Renzo Gracie, he went on to win gold at the No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu Pan-American Championship.

Gunnar remains undefeated in his MMA career, which has been on hold since he knocked out Iran Mascarenhas in September of 2008.

The pride of Iceland’s next challenge will have a clash-of-styles context to it, as the Jiu-Jitsu black belt will face judo black belt Sam Elsdon, who is also undefeated in his MMA career.

    Icelandic Viking blood running in this one. We have seen the pure strength of the icelandic viking before. Who can forget strongmen like Jon Paul Sigmarsson and Magnus Ver. Both multiple World Champions in the World Strongest Man competition. Them purebloods on that Island up north populated by 300.000 people are SUPER STRONG!!!
