The Octagon returns to Sweden for UFC Fight Night 152, Occurring June 1 at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
Several new bouts are added into the card, and they’re given 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 at the UFC and is coming off of a KO win over Marco Polo Reyes using a decision win over Nick Hein before that. Both men are middle-of-the-pack lightweights, but Hadzovic seems a large more polished and needs to 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 both Temyur brothers as he’s fought en route to a very poor 0-3 record in the UFC which includes back-end submission declines to Julio Arce and Chris Fishgold. There is no doubt that he will be fighting for his UFC job in this bout. Jo (9-0) is making his UFC debut after going unbeaten with nine straight endings on the South Korean regional arena. One knock against Jo is he has only fought since 2017, but his album is quite impressive. I wouldn’t be shocked if Teymur managed to receive his first UFC triumph, but based on Jo’s masterful album about the regional scene that he should most likely be preferred here.
Stevie Ray vs. Leonardo Santos, UFC Fight Night 152
An intriguing lightweight bout between Stevie Ray and Leonardo Santos can also be set 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 came to the UFC, but overall he’s been unsatisfactory within the Octagon and he hasn’t finished a struggle since 2015. Santos (16-3-1) won TUF Brazil and overall has a very impressive 5-0-1 record within the Octagon that includes a KO win over Kevin Lee. However, Santos has become 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 an 11-fight unbeaten streak, but the three-year layoff is clearly not a good sign going into this particular bout. Nevertheless, I believe you need to prefer Santos just due to how good his album was over the past ten years against an inconsistent competition 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 and this ought to be a winnable struggle for her. Lansberg (8-4) is 2-3 in the UFC and is coming from a decision loss to Yana Kunitskaya. She’s shown toughness from the Octagon, but that is about it. Both are elderly fighters for the division but awarded Evinger’s experience I expect her to be a small favorite here.
