Secures much-needed UFC win
June 1, 2019
Teymur defeated Sung-Bin Jo via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night 153 in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday.
Teymur used his aggressive, pressuring style to perfection Saturday, while also throwing in takedowns to offset the debuting fighter's timing. While it must have been a relief to get a victory after starring down the barrel of a four-fight losing streak (and probable pink slip), Teymur's entries and strikes are far too predictable, which puts him in danger even when he is having success. Mixing in some wrestling is a good start, but he will need to vary his striking game in order to have a chance to win rounds consistently. He improves to 7-3 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.

Last chance in Stockholm
May 19, 2019
Teymur will take on Jo Sung-Bin in a featherweight matchup at UFC Stokholm on June 1, Abhinav Kini of Body Lock MMA reports (via Rank5.kr).
After his first three UFC fights did not go his way, this could very well be the end of the line for the older Teymur brother. He'll at least get a chance to fight in front of a home-town Stockholm crowd, but the cards may be stacked against him, as he's matched up with an undefeated opponent that is coming off a victory to make him Top FC Interim Featherweight Champion. All nine of his opponent's wins have been earned by way of stoppage.
Falls to submission yet again
February 23, 2019
Teymur lost to Chris Fishgold via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:10 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night 145 in Prague, Czech Republic on Saturday.
Teymur was on defense from the opening bell due to the pressure and takedowns of his opponent. While he did well to defend in Round 1, Fishgold got Teymur to the mat again to open the second frame, eventually finding the back and sinking in the choke. The Swedish fighter came into the UFC with an undefeated record but his striking game and grappling defense don't seem sufficient enough to compete at this level. He falls to 6-3 in professional MMA as a result of the loss, having tasted defeat in three consecutive contests.

Still looking for first UFC win after loss Friday
June 1, 2018
Teymur lost to Julio Arce via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:55 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Friday in Utica, New York.
Teymur looked worse in his second fight with the company than he did in his first. Badly outclassed on the feet and slowly fading as the bout progressed, the Swede had no choice but to tap out to Arce's RNC attempt midway through Round 3. Teymur was decisioned by Danny Henry in his debut last July, but he took that fight on short notice. He had no such excuse for this one. While Teymur's older brother David is on a roll, Daniel may very well be handing his walking papers after his latest poor effort.
Nearly pulls off the short notice victory at UFC Fight Night Glasgow
July 16, 2017
Teymur lost to Danny Henry via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-26) at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in Glasgow, Scotland.
Teymur took this fight on short notice and nearly pulled off the victory. In the first round, he landed a devastating series of power shots. At multiple points in the round, it looked as if Henry was ready to go down. However, the Scottish fighter survived and continued to push forward. Teymur ran out of gas and struggle to stay off the ground for the rest of the fight. Teymur will almost certainly be back in the Octagon. He took this fight at lightweight despite normally fighting at featherweight, if he drops down a division, he can be successful in the UFC. Despite the loss, Teymur and Henry took home Fight of the Night bonuses for their efforts.
