Chris Fishgold vs. Daniel Teymur lined up for UFC's first visit to Prague
The lineup for the UFC’s debut in Prague continues to build with the addition of a new featherweight fight.
Daniel Teymur (6-2 MMA, 0-2 UFC) will meet Chris Fishgold (17-2-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at UFC on ESPN+ 3. UFC officials announced the new booking today.
UFC on ESPN+ 3 takes place Feb. 23 at O2 arena in Prague. The event will be the UFC’s debut in the Czech Republic. The card will stream on ESPN+.
Fishgold will be trying to bounce back from a loss in his promotional debut, which came in October at UFC Fight Night 138. There, he was stopped with a first-round TKO by Calvin Kattar and had a seven-fight winning streak snapped. Prior to coming to the UFC, he was a champion for Cage Warriors.
Teymur, brother of the UFC’s David Teymur, came to the UFC after starting his pro career 6-0. But at UFC Fight Night 113 in his promotional debut in 2017, he lost a decision to Danny Henry. And this past June at UFC Fight Night 131, he was choked out in the third round by Julio Arce.
