IMMAF – WMMAA Pro Transfers: Who’s Gone Where?

Last night, 2015 IMMAF World Champion Minna Grusander (Finland) headlined in the professional atomweight title bout at Invicta FC, to lose on split decision, following in the footsteps of 2015 European Champion Sunna  Davidsdottir (Iceland) who is currently on a win streak with the same promotion. Meanwhile, last weekend, Welshman and 2015 IMMAF European champion, Jack Shore, earned the Cage Warriors professional bantamweight title, to crown a 22-bout win streak

Original 2 x World Champion, Jose ‘Shorty’ Torres (USA – main picture), recently made headlines as he was released from UFC on the slashing of the male flyweight division, going on to sign with BRAVE. Other notable UFC transitions from the recent international amateur MMA circuit include 2014 IMMAF World Champion Alessiondi Chirco, and WMMAA stand outs  Zabit Magomedsharipov, Said Nurmagomedov, Damir Ismagulov and Alexey Kunchenko (Russia).
