EXCLUSIVE MMABay interview with Magnus Cedenblad ahead of his UFC on FUEL TV 2 showdown with Francis Carmont

Check out our latest EXCLUSIVE interview, this time with UFC on FUEL TV 2 preliminary card fighter, Magnus Cedenblad. We asked him about the impact of the UFC on his native Sweden as they gear up for their first ever event in the country, how he plans on handling Francis Carmont on the night and his hopes for the future. Check out the interview in full on the other side…

Hi Magnus,

Thank you for taking the time to sit down with and answer a few of our questions.

Cedenblad – Glad to be here.

MMABay – You were last seen in action on the Fighting For Change card in October where you picked up an impressive first round submission win over Dan Edwards. What were you able to take from such a quick fight?

Cedenblad – I think the preparation before the fight is the biggest thing. Even dough the fight was really short I found myself in a state of mind before the fight that I’m taking with me.

MMABay – The fight marked your seventh straight win in your professional mixed martial arts career. Do you think this helped you stand-out as far as the UFC are concerned or have negotiations been ongoing for some time?

Cedenblad – Of course a win always helps me and I think that last win was the one that got me in to the UFC.

MMABay – You’ll make your octagon debut on the UFC on FUEL TV 2 event on April 14th in Stockholm, Sweden. What does it mean for the Scandinavian region as a whole to finally be hosting a UFC event?

Cedenblad – It’s really big especially for Sweden. We sold out in 2 hours. I think that says a lot. A really big thing now is that we have seven fighters in the UFC. Pretty impressive considering that our population only is 8 million.

MMABay – You’ll be taking on Francis Carmont in your promotional debut, a fighter who is 1-0 inside the octagon after defeating Chris Camozzi back in October. Do you think the impressive winning streak you’re on will help you overcome those octagon jitters?

Cedenblad – Of course a winning streak is always good for your confidence. But I think all people feel something when the entering the UFC. It’s a big thing. But I will embrace the challenge and enjoy myself.

MMABay – Both yourself and Carmont have amassed numerous victories via TKO and submission over the course of your careers. After studying his tapes where do you see your biggest advantage over your opponent, on the feet or on the ground?

Cedenblad – Honestly I don’t know. I think it’s a close call everywhere. I see ourselves as really well rounded. So it’s gonna be interesting to see.

MMABay – At 29-years of age you’ve fought thirteen times picking up an impressive ten wins thus far. Embarking on your UFC career next month what are your long term career goals?

Cedenblad – My long term goals it to be ranked as a top five guy. I know that will happen. Just give me four years and then you will see me there.

MMABay – Just in case some of our readers haven’t seen you fight before can you sum up in a few words what they can expect to see out of you come April 14th inside the octagon?

Cedenblad – They will see a fighter who will eventually go to the top. No matter the outcome of this fight they will see me in the top five in a couple of years.

MMABay – Before we go are there any sponsors, trainers or training partners you’d like to mention?

Cedenblad – Omar Bouiche my MMA trainer. Pancrasegym, omni4, fairing, naprapatlandslaget and Undisputed.

MMABay – Thanks for taking the time to speak to

Cedenblad – Thanks and anytime!
