Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen welcomes Sherdog.com contributor and MMAViking.com founder Ryan O'Leary to “Press Row.”
Ahead of UFC on Fuel 2 in Stockholm, Breen and O'Leary -- a Californian transplant living in Sweden -- discuss the potential impact of the event in Sweden. The two weigh in on whether or not the event could have a ripple effect, why Sweden has so many hardcore MMA fans and the current political climate the sport faces in the country.
The pair also discuss the Ericsson Globe as a venue, Sweden's enterprising state of regulation, potential Olympic crossovers and more.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
