Falls to 4-2 in the UFC
November 19, 2016
Cedenblad lost to Jack Marshman via TKO (punches) at 3:32 of round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
After getting dropped in the first minute of the fight, Cedenblad recovered nicely and scored a takedown. From the top, he did good work and appears to wear out Marshman. However, in the second round, Marshman was much more in control. Late in the round, Cedenblad absorbed a hard three-punch combination that dropped him. From there, it was clear Cedenblad was done and the referee stopped the fight. This was the Swedish fighter's first loss since his UFC debut in 2012.
Magnus Cedenblad: Registers easy win in first fight since October 2014
May 8, 2016
Cedenblad defeated Garreth McLellan via TKO (strikes) at 0:47 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
After dropping his UFC debut to Francis Carmont in April 2012, Cedenblad has now run off a streak of four straight wins. His outing on Sunday was his first fight in more than a year and a half, but the time away from the octagon certainly didn't impact his performance in any way. Cedenblad dominated on the feet, easily using his length to win every striking exchanging. The Swede's age (34) limits his ceiling somewhat, but he has shown enough to get a bit better opponent his next time out.
