MMAViking.com talks to Teymur at media day in Stockholm prior to his upcoming UFC debut.
Teymur (3-1) won twice on the TV show, then lost to Polish stand-out Marcin Wrzosek in the quarter finals. The Sweden based fighter will soon face European Teammate on the show Martin Svensson in London on February 27.
The striker also got attention on the show for saying “take care your underwear… I’m going to f**k you* in the middle of a fight between Team USA and Team Europe. “That is what most people were looking forward to see” says Teymur about breaking up the fight and pushing many of Team Alpha.
