People are calling this undefeated fighter the ‘Swedish Anderson Silva,’ and here’s why…

His name is Niklas Bäckström, or Niklas Backstrom for those people that don’t know how to make those funny characters on their keyboard. He fights at 145 lbs, has a record of 7-0 and he was born on the same year George H. W. Bush inaugurated as 41st US President. Oh, just a few days ago he front kick KOd a dude in just 15 second, exactly like Anderson Silva did to Vitor Belfort a couple years ago. Of course that’s where all the ‘Swedish Anderson Silva’ comparisons are coming from — Bäckström still hasn’t broke his leg in a fight or danced with Justin Bieber on a Brazilian talk show, yet.

Fortunately we have video of his most recent fight at last weekend’s Europa MMA against Max Coga, and it’s rather remarkable. Now check out this ‘Swedish Anderson Silva,’ if you’re into that sort of thing.
