Troeng vs. Jotko Set for Stockholm

 


European middleweights looking to get back in the win column will meet up in Stockholm on October 4, as Sweden's own Tor "The Hammer" Troeng faces Poland's Krzysztof Jotko in UFC Fight Night action.

”This is a fantastic opportunity to redeem myself and show my true capacity at home in The Globe," Troeng said. "I’m extremely anxious to get this shot and I will really bring it.”

"I could not wait for this next fight," Jotko said. "I have a great hunger after my last one."

A member of the Ultimate Fighter season 17 cast, Umea's Troeng has been an exciting addition to the roster, submitting Adam Cella and engaging in a Fight of the Night against Rafael Natal before a hard-fought decision loss to Trevor Smith in July.

“Krzysztof will of course be a very tough test and I’m going to make sure that I learn as much as I can from my teammate Magnus Cedenblad, who is the only one who has defeated him,” Troeng said.

The 24-year-old Jotko currently stands at 1-1 in the UFC, with a win over Bruno Santos and a submission loss to Magnus Cedenblad. On October 4, he gets the chance to go over the .500 mark.

"This fight is very important to me because I desire a rematch with Magnus Cedenblad, so I'll be prepared for him 1000 percent," Jotko said.

UFC Fight Night Stockholm will take place at the Globe Arena on October 4th, with tickets on sale to the general public on August 22. UFC Fight Club members can obtain tickets on August 20, and UFC Newsletter subscribers may order tickets on August 21. Tickets may be purchased online at www.axs.com.
