Makwan Amirkhani leaves Allstars, searches for new gym

The 27-year-old is now in search for a new gym — destination unknown.

Amirkhani posted the following on his official Facebook page.

So many media have been asking why i left from Allstars and why i left from Sweden. Thing is that somebody broke my trust and when somebody do that to me its hard to me forgive that. I fuckin miss the gym because there is 99% good people. But hey they say “there is bad apples in every basket”. I will miss many people from that gym! Im not the kind person who goes around and talk shit, so i dont want to say anything bad about anyone. To me best choice was that i just leave. They say somebody took my girlfriend, i say that i never had a girlfriend. So its kind of hard to do that, Hehe. I still have coach Alan ‘Finfou’ Nascimento with me and many other fighters that i Will never forget. But people lets be honest with this, small shit compare to what is happening right now all around the world. So lets not make a big deal out of this. Life goes on!

PS. Gyms around the world, is there a place for Mr.Finland?!?

Niklas stop using snus ????????
