Martin Svensson and David Teymur will lock horns at UFC Fight Night London on Feb. 27.
The promotion’s European branch announced the contest on Thursday. Svensson and Teymur were both lightweights on Conor McGregor’s team during Season 22 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” UFC Fight Night London takes place at the O2 Arena and features a middleweight showdown between Michael Bisping and Gegard Mousasi.
A native of Malmo, Sweden, Svensson owns a 14-5 career mark, including eight triumphs by way of submission. Prior to his appearance on “TUF 22,” Svensson won back-to-back fights under the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship banner in 2014.
Teymur, meanwhile, is less experienced, with three victories in four professional outings. After losing his debut, the Stockholm native has won three straight, including back-to-back first-round TKO triumphs.
