Around the Pro Circuit: Superior Challenge 6

Scandinavian mixed martial arts promotion "Superior Challenge" will present its sixth installment, Superior Challenge 6: "Lion's Den" on October 29 in Stockholm, Sweden. The promotion, which has established itself as one of the strongest in Europe, issues a competitive fight card that includes two title fights. The card will pair Joachim Hansen against Usama Aziz for the promotion's lightweight title, and Daniel Acacio and David Bielkheden will compete for the Superior Challenge welterweight belt.

Hansen, a former Dream lightweight champion, looks to add another 'w' to his win bracket as he more recently bounced back from a three-fight loosing streak with a first round submission win over Hideo Tokoro at Dream 16. His opponent for the lightweight title, Usama "Sami" Aziz lost in his last two appearances, dropping a submission loss at Bellator 12 last year and a decision loss to Jameel Massouh at Superior Challenge 5 back in May.

Only three fights removed from a stint with the UFC, Sweden-based fighter David Bielkheden now rides a three-fight win streak. In the opposite corner, Daniel Acacio, a Pride veteran and Chute Boxe Academy representative lost his last contest by way of submission to world ranked 170 lber Paul Daley at Impact FC 2 in July.

There's still quite a few holes in the SC 6 card. We'll try our best to keep you updated on card changes/additions.
