      According to Hjortur who trains at the same gym as Gunnar does in Iceland, tells me he is a real good striker too. I’ll watch this one, though I know very little about Krauss. I watched one of Gunnar’s fights on youtube and he ko’d a tough fighter. looked good.

    The best MMA news ever for us Icelanders, no doubt about it. I’m hoping that this will cause a big increase in the popularity of the sport in Iceland.

    Wrestling Rules you will come to Nottingham and watch the fight with us Icelanders. You will not be disappointed by Gunnar.

    I’ve seen Krauss once before against Hathaway, can’t remember which card, but Krauss looked like a decent fighter nothing more then that. My guess is that Krauss will be a good challenge for Gunnar but he will never be able to beat Gunnar. I think that Gunnar’s calmness in the Octagon will make Krauss do something stupid so Gunnar will be able to take him down easy and then submit him.

    I strongly recommend that you guys check out his fights on youtube. You will see total domination.
