Mehmet will face another veteran in Stambrauskas, who made his pro debut 15 years ago. The Lithunian has faced experienced fighters in his career comes into the bout with a record of 7 wins and 5 loses.

“It is great for us to be able to promote a comeback of another well known Finnish MMA veteran. He was in Markus Halkosaari’s corner at FNF 10 event and seemed like a great dude. Mehmet’s comeback has sparked a lot of discussion on social media. There isn’t many active big boys fighting around here so Mehmet returning to action is a very welcomed addition in that sense too. He goes into the cage to finish his opponent, not to dance around. I believe this is going to be a very entertaining about for the crowd” – Perttu_Haanpää, Fight Night Finland Oy

Mehmet has a 3 win and 4 loss record, and last fought in 2007, where he lost to Toni Valtonen at light heavyweight. Below is a vintage video of Miika versus the headliner in London Michael Bisping.
