The Octagon returns to Sweden to Get UFC Fight Night 152, Occurring June 1 at 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 from 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 with a decision win over Nick Hein prior to that. Both men are middle-of-the-pack lightweights, but Hadzovic seems a big more polished and needs to be favored 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 lower of both Temyur brothers as he has struggled en route to a very bad 0-3 record from the UFC that includes back-to-back entry 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 finishes on the South Korean regional scene. One knock against Jo is he has only fought twice since 2017, but his album is very impressive. I would not be surprised if Teymur managed to receive his first UFC triumph, but according to Jo’s masterful record on the regional scene he must most likely be preferred here.
Stevie Ray vs. Leonardo Santos, UFC Fight Night 152
An intriguing lightweight connection between Stevie Ray and Leonardo Santos can also be place for UFC Fight Night 152. Ray (22-8) is 6-3 at the UFC and is coming off of a decision win over Jessin Ayari that snapped a two-fight losing skid. There were lots of high hopes surrounding the Scot when he initially arrived at the UFC, but overall he has been unsatisfactory inside the Octagon and he hasn’t finished a struggle since 2015. Santos (16-3-1) won TUF Brazil and overall has an extremely impressive 5-0-1 record within the Octagon that includes a KO win over Kevin Lee. But, Santos is now 39-years-old and hasn’t fought since late 2016, when he won a decision over Adriano Martins. He hasn’t lost a fight since 2009 and is riding a 11-fight unbeaten streak, but the three-year layoff is clearly not a fantastic sign heading into this particular bout. Nevertheless, I believe you have to prefer Santos just due to how good his record has been over the past ten years against an inconsistent opponent in the shape 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 at the UFC with back-to-back knockout losses to Cris Cyborg and Aspen Ladd. The former Invcita champ has been very disappointing in the UFC thus much but has fought really tough competition and this ought to be a winnable fight for her. Lansberg (8-4) is 2-3 at the UFC and is coming from a decision loss to Yana Kunitskaya. She has shown toughness from the Octagon, but that is about it. Both are elderly fighters to the branch but awarded Evinger’s experience I expect her to be a small favorite here.
