Cirkunov returns on May 28 to face Oezdemir

Unbeaten in his UFC run thus far, light heavyweight contender Misha Cirkunov will attempt to secure his fifth Octagon win on May 28 when he battles Volkan Oezdemir at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs live on FS1, Alexander Gustafsson faces off with Glover Teixeira in a clash of light heavyweight contenders. Tickets go on sale on March 31.

A native of Latvia now making his home in Canada, Cirkunov has been a 205-pound wrecking machine since his UFC debut in 2015, as he's gone four for four with all of his wins finishing before the final horn. In Switzerland's Oezdemir, he will face a fellow contender who made quite the impression in his first UFC fight in February, as he upset former world title challenger Ovince Saint Preux.
