M-1 Global,  has announced its return to Finland for the first time in nine years, August 5, as top fighters from Finland, Russia, America and across Europe will compete in M-1 Challenge 82.

M-1 Global’s newest signee, Vanttinen (24-6-0), is a multiple time winner of Cage and Fight Festival events and a veteran member of the Team Finland. He has everything to become the true star: almost two-meter tall, strong Nordic warrior, just 29-year old, but very experienced in MMA. Marcus always tries to make all of his fights entertaining and finish his opponents as fast as possible. His fight against Russian prospect Mikhail Ragozin (8-2-0) will headline M-1 Challenge event in Helsinki.

Finnish fan-favorite Janne “Jamba” Elonen-Kulmala (15-5-0) is widely considered as Scandinavian #1 bantamweight and huge local hero for Finnish MMA fanas. ”Jamba” fought his second pro fight at M-1 Challenge event in 2008, and now he is back to M-1 in Helsinki. His opponent will be dangerous Brazilian knockout artist Heliton dos Santos (15-6-0).

Mikael "Hulk" Silander (16-5-0), 31, has an appropriate nickname. Powerfully built and possessing explosive physical force, he puts pressure on his rivals from the first second of the battle, using his grappling skills to his full advantage. Having won 15 of his 20 fights, Silander is matched against M-1 Challenge title challenger Viali Branchuk (22-6-0), of Ukraine.
