Patrik Pietilä (4-2) will be seeking his fifth straight win at FNF 12 taking place in Turku, Finland on February 27th. The unique event will combine the live fight card at 16:00, then show the UFC Fight Night London on a big screen beginning at 19:00 with a partnership with Viaplay featuring both Makwan Amirkhani and Teemu Packalen.
The Finn will be facing France’s Anthony Dizy (5-1). “Dizy fought last time in Bellator and he lost by decisions to Darrion Caldwell. Before that Dizy had five fights winning streak. Dizy has got good wrestling skills and he loves hitting on the ground and while stand up fighting.” says matchmaker Olli Hartikainen about the MMA Factory fighter.
Pietila is one of the FNF contract fighters, and the featherweight hasn’t lost since Cage 24 where he lost by decision to Aleksi Nurminen in November 2013. “He has taken many steps forward in last two years. Pietilä is quite tall in his weight class and he uses long legs and arms pretty well. Pietila has trained a lot with really high level grapplers in his home gym and he is able to stop fight in stand up but also on the ground.”
This is the only announced matchup of the upcoming card, however Juho Valamaa is also expected to be on the card.
