Mixed martial arts career
He started his MMA career on the European circuit in 2007. After losing his first two as a light heavyweight, he dropped down to middleweight and 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.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Cedenblad made his UFC debut against Francis Carmont on April 14, 2012 at UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva. 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.
Instead, Cedenblad faced Jared Hamman on August 31, 2013 at UFC 164. 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.
Cedenbald was expected to face Alessio Sakara on October 26, 2013 at UFC Fight Night 30, replacing an injured Tom Watson. 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.
Cedenblad faced undefeated Krzysztof Jotko on May 31, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 41. 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. He was also awarded his first Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts.
Cedenblad faced touted undefeated promotional newcomer Scott Askham on October 4, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 53. Despite getting caught and dropped by a front kick in round two, Cedenbland controlled the action through the rest of the fight, earning the unanimous decision victory. For the second time in a row, Cedenblad handed his opponent the first loss of their career.
