The Octagon Yields to Sweden for UFC Fight Night 152, taking place June 1 in Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
Several new bouts have been added to the card, and they are listed below.
Christos Giagos vs. Damir Hadzovic, Fight Night 152
Lightweights Christos Giagos and Damir Hadzovic are set to battle UFC Fight Night 152. MMANytt.com broke the information. Giagos (16-7) is 2-3 at the UFC over two stints in the advertising and is coming off of a decision win over Mizuto Hirota. Hadzovic (13-4) is 3-2 in the UFC and is coming off of a KO win over Marco Polo Reyes using a decision win over Nick Hein prior to that. Both men are middle-of-the-pack lightweights, but Hadzovic looks a big more polished and should be preferred here.
Daniel Teymur vs. Sung Bin Jo, UFC Fight Night 152
Featherweights Daniel Teymur and Sung Bin Jo will battle UFC Fight Night 152. Teymur (6-3) is the lesser of the two Temyur brothers since he’s fought en route to a very bad 0-3 record from the UFC which includes back-end submission losses to Julio Arce and Chris Fishgold. There’s no doubt he is going to be fighting for his UFC job in this bout. Jo (9-0) is making his UFC debut after moving unbeaten with nine consecutive endings on the West regional scene. One knock against Jo is he has only fought since 2017, but his record is very impressive. I would not be surprised if Teymur was able to get his first UFC triumph, but according to Jo’s masterful record about the regional arena that he must probably be preferred here.
Stevie Ray vs. Leonardo Santos, UFC Fight Night 152
An intriguing lightweight connection between Stevie Ray and Leonardo Santos is also set for UFC Fight Night 152. Ray (22-8) is 6-3 at the UFC and is coming from a decision win over Jessin Ayari that snapped a two-fight losing skid. There were plenty of high hopes surrounding the Scot when he originally came to the UFC, but overall he’s been disappointing within the Octagon and he hasn’t finished a fight since 2015. Santos (16-3-1) won TUF Brazil and overall has a very impressive 5-0-1 record inside the Octagon that includes a KO win over Kevin Lee. However, Santos has become 39-years-old and has not fought since late 2016, when he chose over Adriano Martins. He hasn’t lost a fight since 2009 and is riding an 11-fight unbeaten streak, but the three-year layoff is obviously not a fantastic sign heading into this bout. Nevertheless, I think you have to prefer Santos just because of how great his record was over the last decade against an inconsistent opponent in the form of Ray.
Tonya Evinger vs. Lina Lansberg, UFC Fight Night 152
Additionally added to UFC Fight Night 152 is a women’s bantamweight bout between Tonya Evinger and Lina Lansberg. Evinger (19-7, 1 NC) is 0-2 in the UFC with back-to-back knockout losses to Cris Cyborg and Aspen Ladd. The prior Invcita champ has been quite disappointing at the UFC thus much but has fought very tough competition, which ought to be a winnable struggle for her. Lansberg (8-4) is 2-3 in the UFC and is coming off of a decision loss to Yana Kunitskaya. She has shown toughness in the Octagon, but that is about it. Both are older fighters for the division but awarded Evinger’s experience I expect her to be a tiny favorite here.
