An All-European matchup has been added to UFC Fight Night 109 in Stockholm.

Bosnia’s Damir Hadzovic will square off with Poland’s Marcin Held in a lightweight bout at UFC Fight Night 109 in Stockholm, Sweden. The UFC announced the news Saturday via its UFC Europe Twitter account.

Hadzovic (10-3) is making his second UFC appearance. As a short-notice replacement, he lost a first-round finish to Mairbek Taisumov in April 2016. Prior to that, Hadzovic had won six consecutive fights.

Held (22-6), meanwhile, also lost his last fight, although two judges were apparently the only ones who thought so. Held dropped a split decision to Joe Lauzon at UFC Fight Night 103 which was so questionable that Lauzon himself said on the mic afterwards that Held should have gotten the nod. Held, who has 12 career submissions, was the Bellator season 10 lightweight tournament winner.

The UFC Fight Pass-broadcast card will be headlined by Alexander Gustafsson vs. Glover Teixeira.
