“I love MMA. MMA has given me many memorable moments, hard training, meetings with amazing people, and above all a lot of joy. I want to thank everyone who has been with me on my journey in one way or another. From its inception in Umea to the big international arenas. Thanks coaches, family, friends, friends, fans and everyone else who believed in me and been by my side. You know who you are. See you soon.”
