A welterweight showdown has been added to the UFC Fight Night 109 card May 28.
Veteran Omari Akhmedov will meet unbeaten hotshot Abdul Razak Alhassan at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. The UFC announced the bout on Wednesday.
Akhmedov, an American Top Team competitor by way of Dagestan, brings a 17-4 record into the fight. He’s dropped two of his past three, but ended a two-fight losing streak in his last appearance, as he won a decision over Kyle Noke at UFC Fight Night 101 in November. He has 12 career finishes among his 17 victories.
Alhassan, meanwhile, knows nothing but finishes early in his career. He is 7-0, with all of his fights ending in 86 seconds or less via KO/TKO. That includes his 53-second knockout of Charlie Ward in his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 99.
UFC Fight Night 109 is headlined by Stockholm’s Alexander Gustafsson vs. Glover Teixeira.
