Anybody guess?

Can anybody guess as to what fighters might be on the Fight Night Turkey card?

I'm not sure what countries border Turkey, or what UFC fighters are from Turkey.

Would they use an American/Braz/Aus/Can fighter to open up the market in the middle east?

If so, what fighter(s) would they use?



EDIT: Nikita Krylov(Ukraine), Andrei Arlovsky(Armenian?), Stanislov Nedkov(Bulgaria), Beneil Dariush(Iran)

Spearheading with Gegard and the sub-Russian dudes like Khabib couldn't hurt, I guess.

Ramsey seemed to get some traction last time they were in the Middle-East, but I can't quite remember exactly where he's from.

EDIT: I know Ramsay's completely American. I meant to say his family's ethnic origins/background.

I totally forgot about them Dagestan badasses.

Khabib vs Grant
Khabib vs Cerrone/Green winner.

Opened up some options

Alp Ozkilic will almost definitely be on the card. They may sign Kairat Akhmetov (20-0) for the card as well.

Andrei Arolovski is from Belarus.

Manny Gamburian is of Armenian decent tho, if he's still in the UFC, was a long time since I heard anything about him.

Ramsey Nijem is Palestinian.

Amir Sadollah, maybe bring back fighters with muslim sounding names like Mustafa Al-Turk or Razak Al-Hassan for one more fight.

Manny's making his bantamweight debut one one of the cards in the next few weeks, couldn't tell you which one off the top of my head.

Costas Phillipou was born in Cyprus, so he's another option.

Alptekin Ozkilic and Costas Phillipou make the most sense...if Khabib wasn't injured he would probably be headlining but they will probably have a lot of other Russians on the card like Rustam Khabilov and Adlan Amagov...

I could easily see this being the main card if these guys are all available-
Rustam Khabilov vs Jim Miller
Costa Phillipou vs Clint Hester
Adlan Amagov vs Thiago Alves
Alptekin Ozkilic vs Danny Martinez
