It looks like Allstars Training Center teammates Niklas Bäckström and Alexander Gustafsson will be making the trip to fight in Germany on June 20th together. The Mauler was just announced to headline the card against Glover Teixeira, and has now linked Noad Lahat with the Swede Bäckström as the next matchup.

Bäckström Ready for Revenge

The fighter from Luleå was undefeated when he entered the UFC, and submitted Tom Niinimaki in his UFC debut. The 25 year old featherweight suffered his first loss at the hands of Mike Wilkinson in Stockholm in October at the Globen Arena.

The Allstars Training Center fighter had surgery shortly after his bout, and has been eager to get back into the cage.

Lahat comes into the fight with a 8 win and 1 loss record.  The Israeli-born fighter now trains at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, California.  He lost his UFC debut versus Godofredo Castro and has since rebounded with a win over Steven Siler last July.

UFC Fight Night 69 takes place at O2 World Berlin.
