Marcin Held will face Damir Hadzovic at UFC Fight Night 109 in Stockholm.
The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the lightweight pairing on Saturday. UFC Fight Night 109 takes place at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm on May 28 and is headlined by a light heavyweight duel pitting Alexander Gustafsson against Glover Teixeira. The event will stream on UFC Fight Pass.
A former Bellator title challenger, Held kicked off his UFC tenure with back-to-back losses to divisional staples Joe Lauzon and Diego Sanchez. The Polish submission artist owns a 22-6 career mark and has earned 12 of those triumphs via submission.
Hadzovic had a six-fight winning streak halted in his Octagon debut when he suffered a first-round knockout loss to Mairbek Taisumov at UFC Fight Night 86 in April 2016. “The Bosnian Bomber” is 10-3 as a professional and has finished eight of his victories inside the distance.
