A battle of European light heavyweight prospects is coming to the Czech Republic.
A 26-year-old out of Dagestan, Russia, Ankalaev picked up his first UFC win in September with a first-round knockout of Marcin Prachnio. That helped him rebound from his dubious debut back in March where he handled Paul Craig for almost 15 minutes before succumbing to a triangle choke submission at the 4:59 mark of round three. Ankalaev owns an 11-1 pro record with six of those wins coming by KO.
Stosic, 26, has also been projected as one to watch at 205 pounds. The Serbian made a successful UFC debut in July with a first-round TKO of Jeremy Kimball, the eighth KO victory of his career. He has won nine straight bouts and is 13-1 in his career.
