Shooter of the Year: Björn Herrmann

Björn Herrmann is the most successful shooter in Germany in 2023

He is the most successful shooter in Germany: Leipzig-based Björn Herrmann from the Samurai Fight Team is the Shooter of the Year from Shooto Germany. The German Champion 2022 and European Champion 2023 is the measure of all things in the Pound 4 Pound rankings and a shining example for all MMA fighters in Germany.

Consistently strong performance ensures success

The exceptional 17-year-old athlete from Leipzig has a clear secret to success: no one works harder, no one fights more often and no one is more consistent in pursuing his goals than Björn. The always calm and modest athlete is an example of down-to-earthness and diligence, as his coach Grigori Winizki can confirm. Björn has been competing in almost all Shooto events in Germany for years and is usually at the top of the podium. His most significant victories certainly include the thriller against Artur Hovakimyan (European Champion 2023) in the final of the German Championships 2022, which Björn won by a razor-thin split decision.


Deisadze and Saliev in the places

Björn's teammate Geila Deisadze follows in second place in the rankings, closely followed by Berlin-based Bilal Saliev from the Spitfire Team. Both won the European Championships this year and were therefore able to recommend themselves for the top places in the P4P rankings of Shooto Germany. Shooto Germany congratulates the athletes on their fantastic successes at European level and looks forward to their participation in Shooto events again next year.
