David Teymur Wants Ross Pearson Or Clay Guida Next


David Teymur is quickly rising up the ranks of the UFC Lightweight Division, last defeating Drakkar Klose by decision at UFC 218.

When the fighter returns to the Octagon later this year, an ideal opponent would be either Ross Pearson or Clay Guida.

“The UFC is going to come soon to Ireland; maybe me and Ross Pearson would be a good fight, because he’s also from that area,” Teymur told MMA Junkie. “I am also in Europe here, so it’s close. Clay Guida would also be a good one I think. The fans are going to love it.”

Pearson hasn’t competed since a unanimous decision win over Mizuto Hirota at UFC 221, while Guida hasn’t fought since a first round TKO victory over Joe Lauzon at UFC Fight Night Norfolk.

No matter who Teymur fights next, a confident contender knows that his future fights are going to be entertaining for the fans.

“So far people love my fights,” Teymur said “It’s entertaining. Stay tuned. Don’t blind. David Teymur is coming to bring some good stuff to the table.”

Neither Pearson or Guida have yet to respond to the challenge laid out by Teymur.
