Earlier this year, Beslan Isaev and Assan Njie – two of Europe’s top middleweight prospects – clashed in a featured bout at Superior Challenge 7.

As this week’s HDNet Fights Video Vault feature, we take a look at the competitive fight, which took place April 30 in Sweden.

Each week HDNet and MMAjunkie.com release a new and exclusive fight from the ever-growing HDNet Fights video library. Stunning knockouts, slick submissions, shocking finishes and legendary brawls are the norm for this weekly feature.

Isaev vs. Njie is no exception.

Isaev (16-3 at the time) entered the fight on a two-year, 10-fight win streak, and 15 of his 16 victories had come via stoppage. The Russian met another finisher in Njie (10-2), a Swedish who posted stoppages in nine of his 10 victories (seven via submission).

Both were competent on the ground, but which fighter ultimately would get the submission win?
