UFC Fight Night 109: Misha Cirkunov vs Volkan Oezdemir added
Stockholm’s UFC Fight Night 109 now has a light heavyweight contending matchup.
Hometown hero Volkan Oezdemir (13-1-0) will try to snap No. 15 Misha Cirkunov’s (13-2-0) four-fight octagon win streak May 28.
The 27-year old “Cousin” split-decisioned Ovince St. Preux in his last fight, part of a three-fight win streak of his own. Cirkunov, who recently resigned with the UFC, is three years older. He submitted Nikita Krylov in his last bout at UFC 206.
