After 5 years of training karate, he started training in Rumble Sports, one of the biggest MMA gyms in Copenhagen. He had a total of 5 amateur fights, losing the first one by decision and winning the rest of them. Dalby was quickly recognized for his powerful striking and knockout power. He became one of the most feared strikers in Europe after lots of brutal knockouts.[2][3][4][5]

Cage Warriors Fighting Championship[edit]

In 2014, Dalby gained two victories in the Cage Warriors, including a TKO stoppage of Sergei Churilov to earn the CWFC Welterweight Championship.[6][7]
