The crowd in Osijek gave fantastic support to all the fighters at FFC 5 held last Friday in the Gradski vrt venue, but the one who got them on their feet the most was the gladiator from Dubrovnik – Ante Delija.
Just by appearing on the top of the steps during the walk-in he caused a total frenzy, and then got to a win in the first round thanks to a TKO.
"I can tell you that my opponent was really tough, I think it speaks volumes that my hands were completely swollen after the fight, I even had to go to the emergency for examination. Fortunately, there was no fracture and everything will be fine. I also met my opponent at the emergency who came there because I knocked two of his teeth out. I expect Gzim to become a very good fighter," Ante said.
There are more and more comments it's high time to bring in some "proper opponents" for Delija, especially in online discussions. "I'm asking those smartasses which opponents are proper, and which ones are improper? I promise to fight with the best, that is my ultimate goal," the Dubrovnik-based fighter added in a brief conversation with Fight Site.
