Oliver Enkamp has agreed to step in on short notice to fight Nordine Taleb at UFC Fight Night 109, replacing an injured Emil Meek.
Taleb (12-4-0) has won four of six fights during his UFC tenure, with notables wins coming over the duo of Erick Silva and Chris Clements. Taleb also fought three times in Bellator MMA, earning victories over the duo of Matt Secor and Matt McGrath. Taleb also competed on the UFC Ultimate Fighter 19, where he was eliminated in the opening round by Mike King.
Enkamp (7-0-0) is going to be making his UFC debut in this fight and he has yet to suffered a defeat in four-plus years of his professional MMA career. Enkamp competed just over a month ago at Superior Challenge Stockholm 15, where he defeated Frodi Vitalis Hansen by first round TKO. Enkamp is getting a home country fight at UFC Fight Night 109, as he both lives and trains in the country of Sweden.
