Finn Timo-Juhani Hirvikangas (9 wins, 2 losses, #1 Rank Bantamweight) will face Russian Marat Pekov on the upcoming Fight Night Finland (FNF) card. The promotion takes their show to Helsinki for the first time on June 14. The promotion recently revealed the bout to MMAViking.com.
Hirvikangas has won his last 8 of 9 bouts. The FinnFighters Gym fighter most recently captured the Cage belt in April, and looks as a top prospect for a UFC contract with another win.
Pekov, known as “The Circassian Outlaw”, represents K Dogo Warrior Tribe and is on a two fight winning streak. He has most recently fought for Cage Warriors, where he last won over Brian Moore last month at CW Fight Night 11 by TKO.
