Top prospect Janne Elonen-Kulmala added to the CAGE roster

Jun 19, 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- CAGE has added a new member to its roster by signing a multiple fight deal with four-time Finnish Champion Janne "Jamba" Elonen-Kulmala. Despite his young age, Elonen-Kulmala has stacked a long and victorious record both, as an amateur and a professional MMA-fighter.

Elonen-Kulmala is currently riding a 7 fight winning streak. Most of the W's he's taken via submission or KO. The pro record holds altogether 11 victories and 4 defeats.

As an amateur Elonen-Kulmala fought 23 victories, 3 defeats and 2 draws. Gold medals from Finnish Championship tournaments he holds 4, of which he exceptionally earned 2 on the same day as he won the finals in the junior- and adult categories. In addition Elonen-Kulmalalla holds 2 Finnish Open-tournament gold medals.

- Jamba is one of the most promising European Mixed Martial Artists. He's a combination of high skill-level, talent and the capability of hard-trainign. The frantic volume in which he has fought has earned him a hard-to-beat cage-confidence and cool that allow him to compete at his own skill-level. His style is energetic and he looks to end fights both standing up and on the ground, so I'm positive that the audience will appreciate us signing Jamba, states the CAGE promoter One Silvera.

- I feel the same way about CAGE that I feel about training: Enjoying what I do gets me the best result and that will get me far. I'm happy about getting signed by CAGE since I know it'll boost my career and I can't wait to fight, says Janne Elonen-Kulmala.

The next fights for "Jamba" are at CAGE 31 in September and CAGE 33 in November.
