David Bielkheden Has No Retirement Plans

David Bielkheden’s short UFC run and his outings that have followed are less than spectacular, but that hasn’t stopped the Sweden from continuing to fight for another chance to make it big.

“I want to try and enjoy it as long as it’s going,” said David Bielkheden to Nordic MMA. “As long as I don’t have any injuries and think it’s fun, I’m going to keep going. I want to win and go back to the big stage. That’s the goal. I got to take one step at a time and can’t take the hardest fights every time.”

Bielkheden went 1-2 for the UFC in 2008. After losing via submission to Diego Sanchez, he made the drop to lightweight to take a decision win over Jess Liaudin. He was released after Mark Bocek submitted him. Both defeats came in round one.

After a three fight win streak, Bielkheden’s luck has hit a bump. He is 1-5 in his last two years of fighting. He currently sits on a two fight losing streak with his last appearance being in October.

A return to action is not known.
