Daniel Teymur
Kid Dynamite


Finished by Chase Hooper in Vegas
December 14, 2019
Teymur lost to Chase Hooper via TKO (punches) at 4:34 of Round 1 at UFC 245 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It was a highly entertaining bout for as long as it lasted. Teymur isn't going to be happy with the end result, but he showed some good things in this one. First was the fact he nearly had Hooper choked out in the early stages of the fight. Teymur clamped on a deep guillotine after Hooper rushed in for an early takedown and it's remarkable the debuting fighter survived. Later on prior the finish, Teymur found himself in a rear-naked choke and it's a miracle he was able to survive that attempt. Teymur, of course, was knocked out not long after, but it was an impressive effort nonetheless. Teymur is a pretty fun guy to watch but he's now rocking a 1-4 record with the UFC dating back to his July 2017 debut. There's no guarantee he gets another chance with the company.

Set to face Chase Hooper at UFC 245
November 4, 2019
Teymur is scheduled to fight 20-year-old Chase Hooper at UFC 245 on Dec. 14 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
Teymur is fresh off of his first UFC victory which occurred at UFC Fight Night 153 back in June. The Swedish fighter was set for a demotion if he were to have lost but was fortunately able to keep his UFC fighting hopes alive with the win via a unanimous decision. The 31-year-old will now face Chase Hooper who is 8-0-1 in all MMA fights but will be making his UFC debut against Teymur in just over a month. Teymur has an overall record of 7-3 in all MMA fights but sports a meager 1-3 showing in UFC fights.
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.
