Saunders vs. Sobotta, Meek vs. Taleb Set for UFC Fight Night 109 in Stockholm

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 7, 2017


A pair of welterweight bouts have been added to the UFC Fight Night 109 lineup.

UFC officials announced that Ben Saunders will face Peter Sobotta and Emil Weber Meek will meet Nordine Taleb at the May 28 event in Stockholm. UFC Fight Night 109 takes place at Ericsson Globe and is headlined by a light heavyweight tilt pitting Alexander Gustafsson against Glover Teixeira. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.

Saunders returned to the Octagon after a brief hiatus at UFC Fight Night 103, where he earned a unanimous verdict over Court McGee on Jan. 15. Sobotta, meanwhile, has won three of his four promotional appearances, including a decision triumph against Nicolas Dalby at UFC Fight Night 93 in his most recent outing.

Meek won his fourth straight fight in his promotional debut, as he took a decision against Jordan Mein at UFC 206. Taleb is 4-2 in the Las Vegas-based organization overall but is coming off a decision defeat to Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC Fight Night 105 on Feb. 19.
