Dimitrios Chiotis (44-4, FFC 1-0) is stepping in for the injured Ivan Bilić to face Skhodran Veseli (65-15, FFC 4-1) in the kickboxing headliner of FFC 30 which takes place Saturday, October 21, at TipsArena in Linz, Austria.
This fall Final Fight Championship returns to Linz, Austria, with its 30th edition that will be made up of MMA and kickboxing bouts with Robin van Roosmalen in the MMA headliner and Shkodran Veseli in the main bout of the kickboxing part of the event. The event will also mark Veseli’s return to the FFC ring.
After four impressive wins in the FFC, Veseli fought for the FFC belt in September 2016 at TipsArena with one of Holland’s best fighters, Eyevan Danenberg who also fights under Glory’s banner. Veseli came short of the belt, but he proved that he is a force to be reckoned with.
At FFC 30 he will fight a dangerous opponent in Dimitrios Chiotis from Greece. Moreover, the winner of this bout will get the crack at the welterweight belt.
Chiotis made his FFC debut in February 2015 at FFC 22 Athens when he KO’ed Croatia’s Jasmin Bajrović. The two opened the show with real fireworks, both showcasing their uncompromised styles. However, Chiotis proved to be the better man that night, he showed he is willing to provide an exciting performance and thus he launched himself into the FFC welterweight title picture.
