Welterweights Paulo Thiago and Siyar Bahadurzada have agreed to square off during the UFC on FUEL TV 2 fight card.
UFC on FUEL TV 2 is now officially set to take place at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on April 14th.
The card is still in the works and the only bouts currently confirmed for the event are DeMarques Johnson vs. John Maquire, Papy Abedi vs. James Head, Magnus Cedenblad vs. Francis Carmont, Cyrille Diabate vs. Jorgen Kruth, Besam Yousef vs. Simeon Thoresen as well as the Stann vs. Sakara fight expected to headline fight night.
Bahadurzada was originally scheduled to make his UFC debut against Erick Silva at UFC 142; however an injury forced him out of the competition subsequently putting off his first Octagon appearance to April against Thiago. He brings in a six-fight win streak, which includes winning the United Glory World Series tournament.
Thiago burst on to the MMA scene when he took on Josh Koscheck in his debut and knocked out the top welterweight in the process. He last saw action at UFC 134 where he was able to secure a decision victory over David Mitchell. It was his first win in three-fights.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
