Aug 12, 2013
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Domingos Mestre will take on the Norwegian Simeon Thoresen in front of his home crowd at Superior Challenge 9 on November 23 at Scandinavium in Gothenburg.

Gothenburg’s Domingos who soon turns 28 will take on the toughest opponent of his carrier so far at Superior Challenge 9. The Portuguese born Mestre has fought a total of 16 pro MMA bouts including 11 wins and he will take on the former UFC fighter from Norway, Simeon Thoresen. Simeon has fought 21 pro MMA bouts of which 17 of them are wins. The 29-year-old “The Grin’s” last win was over no other than Gothenburg’s own Besam Yousef.

Babak Aghavali, CEO Superior Group International: - I have followed Domingos career for quite some time now and he is constantly evolving. I met Simeon first time in 2006 when I visited Joachim Hansen in Norway, and after a hard sparring session consisting of 2 hours of Ground and Pound Joachim turned to me as he pointed at Simeon and said "if you want a real talent, keep your eyes on that guy." Both Domingos and Simeon are experienced and talented athletes and style wise very similar. Therefore it’s a very even and interesting matchup of highest quality. The winner of the bout will have the opportunity to qualify for a Welterweight title shot. I hope the bout turns in to an intensive MMA-grappling match with a lot of scramble and submission attempts, but regardless I know that it will be a very entertaining bout.
