UFC SWEDEN CARD UPDATES INCLUDING TONYA EVINGER VS. LINA LANSBERG
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 are 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 with a decision win over Nick Hein before that. Both men are middle-of-the-pack lightweights, but Hadzovic looks a large 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 the two Temyur brothers since he’s struggled en route to a very bad 0-3 record from the UFC which includes back-end entry losses to Julio Arce and Chris Fishgold. There’s no doubt that he will be battling to get his UFC job in this bout. Jo (9-0) is making his UFC debut after going unbeaten with nine consecutive endings on the West regional arena. One knock against Jo is that he has only fought since 2017, but his album is very impressive. I would not be surprised if Teymur was able to receive his first UFC triumph, but based on Jo’s masterful record on the regional scene he should most likely be favored here.
Stevie Ray vs. Leonardo Santos, UFC Fight Night 152
An intriguing lightweight connection between Stevie Ray and Leonardo Santos is also place for UFC Fight Night 152. Ray (22-8) is 6-3 in the UFC and is coming from 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’s been unsatisfactory inside the Octagon and he has not finished a struggle since 2015. Santos (16-3-1) won TUF Brazil and overall has a very impressive 5-0-1 record inside the Octagon that comprises a KO win over Kevin Lee. However, 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 bout. Nevertheless, I believe you need to favor Santos just because of how good his record has been over the past ten years against an inconsistent competition 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 quite disappointing in the UFC thus much but has fought really tough competition, which should be a winnable fight for her. Lansberg (8-4) is 2-3 in the UFC and is coming off of a decision loss to Yana Kunitskaya. She’s shown toughness in the Octagon, but that’s about it. Both are older fighters to the division but given Evinger’s expertise I expect her to be a small favorite here.
