The “Bosnian Bomber” Damir Hadzovic has officially signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. This was rumored a few days back when Hadzovic posted a picture of a brand new pen tagged with #SpecialPen4SpecialOccasion to his facebook fan page.

Hadzovic will be the third Danish based fighter to step into the Octagon following Nordic MMA pioneer Martin Kampmann and fellow 2015 gym of the year Rumble Sports teammate Nicolas Dalby.

The Bosnian Bomber will be thrown into the deep end straight away as the fighter he will be standing face to face against in the Octagon will be Chechnyan stopping machine Mairbek Taisumov (24-5) that has 23 of his 24 wins come via 13 KO’s and 9 submissions.
