Lightweight prospects and Dana White’s Contender Series alums clash at UFC 266 when the undefeated Uros Medic (7-0) faces Jalin Turner (10-5) in Las Vegas.
Serbia’s Medic, 28, is coming off a successful UFC debut at UFC 259 where he earned a first-round TKO win, landing a stunning flying knee against Aalon Cruz. That win kept Medic’s perfect finishing record intact.
“The Doctor” faces his toughest and most experienced test in Jalin Turner. “The Tarantula” picked up three wins all via finish since debuting at UFC 229, beating the likes of Callan Potter and Joshua Culibao. The 26-year-old also has a perfect finishing record and is riding a 2-fight winning streak.
While the lightweight division is notoriously laden with talent, these two have shown they are must-watch fighters who never leave it in the hand of the judges. The winner of this September 25 bout likely puts himself on an inside track toward the rankings, so the stakes, as always, will be high on fight night.
