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" Filipović and punch like Javier Garcia Roche.[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 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.[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]

Next he 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 faced touted undefeated promotional newcomer Scott Askham on October 4, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 53.[22][23] 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.[24]

Coming back from a one and a half year layoff due to injuries, Cedenblad faced Garreth McLellan on May 8, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 87.[25] He scored a knockdown from a straight right hand in round 1 and won the fight by TKO early in round 2 after stunning McLellan with a head kick followed by a barrage of uppercuts against the fence.[26]

Cedenblad returned to face Jack Marshman on November 19, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 99.[27] He lost the back and forth fight via TKO in the second round.[28]

Cedenblad was expected to face Chris Camozzi on May 28, 2017 at UFC Fight Night 109.[29] However, Cedenblad was removed from the card on 27 March and replaced by Trevor Smith.[30]

Cedenblad has a degree in Physiotherapy.[31]
