Frontier MMA’s Svensson was just in Vegas as a potential replacement for the TUF 22 Finale, but did not get a fight. The Big Swede never lost on the reality show, eventually withdrawing due to an elbow injury in the quarterfinals.
Allstar Training Center’s Teymur (3-1) lost to Polish stand-out Marcin Wrzosek in the quarter finals of the show.
The fight will go down at the O2 Arena on February 27 on the card with another Nordic fighter in Finland’s Makwan Amirkhani taking on Mike Wilkinson.
