The lineup for the UFC’s debut in Prague continues to build with the addition of another lightweight fight.
UFC on ESPN+ 3 takes place Feb. 23 at O2 arena in Prague. The event will be the UFC’s debut in the Czech Republic. The card will stream on ESPN+.
Hadzovic, a Yugoslavian (now Bosnia and Herzegovina) who now fights out of Denmark, has alternated wins and losses in his first four UFC bouts. He signed with the UFC in 2016 on a six-fight winning streak, but was knocked out in the first round by Mairbek Taisumov.
He bounced back with an upset knockout of Marcin Held in Sweden to win a $50,000 bonus in May 2017. Then, after a decision loss to Alan Patrick, he took a split call from Nick Hein in Germany this past July to get back in the win column.
Marco Polo Reyes
Reyes got back in the win column a little more than a year ago with a first-round knockout win over Matt Frevola at UFC Fight Night 125 in St. Louis. The 60-second finish earned him a $50,000 post-fight bonus. That got him back on track after a first-round TKO loss to James Vick snapped a four-fight streak at UFC 211 in May 2017.
Reyes started his UFC career with three straight wins, including bonuses for knockouts in his first two fights with the promotion against Cesar Arzamendia and “Maestro” Dong Hyun Kim. A split call over Jason Novelli in November 2016 gave him four straight before the setback against Vick, but now Mexico native will try to get another streak started.
