Magnus Cedenblad (born April 10, 1982) is a Swedish mixed martial artist who competes in the middleweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early Career[edit]

Cedenblad has said that he took up mixed martial arts because he wanted to learn to kick like Mirko Cro Cop.[1]

He is a former European and Scandinavian Amateur champion in Shootfighting.[2]

He started his MMA career on the European circuit in 2007. After losing his first two, he went 10-1 in his next 11 fights, with 6 wins by KO/TKO and 3 by submission, finishing 7 opponents in the first round.[3][4]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

On January 5, 2012 it was announced that Cedenblad had signed with the UFC.[5]

Cedenblad made his UFC debut against Francis Carmont on April 14, 2012 at UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva.[6][7] After a good performance in the begin of the fight, winning the first round, he eventually lost via rear naked choke submission in the second round.[8]

Cedenblad was expected to face Rafael Natal at UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Dodson,[9] but was forced out of the bout with an injury, and was replaced by Sean Spencer.[10]

He was briefly linked to a bout against Robert McDaniel on August 28, 2013 at UFC Fight Night: Condit vs. Kampmann 2,[11] but McDaniel's opponent was later changed to be Brad Tavares.[12]

Instead, Cedenblad faced Jared Hamman on August 31, 2013 at UFC 164.[13] He won the fight by submission due to a guillotine choke 57 seconds into the first round, giving him his first UFC win and serving Hamman the first submission loss of his career.[14]

Cedenbald was expected to face Alessio Sakara on October 26, 2013 at UFC Fight Night 30, replacing an injured Tom Watson.[15] However, Cedenblad himself later had to withdraw from the bout due to an injury, and was replaced by newcomer Nicholas Musoke, one of his main training partners.[16][17]

Cedenblad faced undefeated Krzysztof Jotko on May 31, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 41.[18] After controlling the first round of action, he won the fight by submission due to a guillotine choke in the very last second of round two, serving Jotko the first loss of his career.[19] He was also awarded his first Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts.[20][21]

Cedenblad has a degree in Physiotherapy.[22]
