Christien “Tiger” Savoie

27 | 5’11” | New Brunswick, Canada | 7-0 | 5 Finishes | 5 KO/TKOs | Combined Opponents’ Record: 18-16 | Best Win– Alderic Keith (9-4)

Christien Savoie has competed at both middleweight and welterweight. Elite 1 MMA is a promotion out of Canada and Savoie has won two titles for them at both of those weight classes. Last summer, Savoie was targeted for the Contender Series, which unfortunately didn’t pan out — in fact it hasn’t the past two seasons. The UFC comes to Canada quite a bit each year and the promotion has already expressed their interest in Savoie.

Savoie is mainly a grinder who will push the pace in close quarters. He wants to take the fight to the mat where his ground and pound is excellent landing at a solid rate with good shots from a short amount of distance.
