With the likes of Molly McCann and Darren Till presenting the recent UFC cards, Liverpool has a strong presence in the best Mixed Martial Art promotion right now.

Fishgold, 26, moved to 18-2 with his first win at UFC last time in Prague on Daniel Teymur.

"I'm still smiling, I feel extremely confident after that victory. I analyzed the fight and saw some things I need to work on," said Fishgold. "You'll see a completely different beast in the Octagon of the UFC Stockholm."

On his opponent in Stockholm, Fishgold knows how dangerous it can be, but he's working hard to win emphatically.

"I saw Andy Ogle killed in eight seconds! He is a grinder and his struggles often go to the decision. He is a good striker and fighter, a well-rounded fighter.

"This boy has never been finished, but I'm telling you, I'll stop him," Fishgold promised. "He is much harder and more experienced than Daniel Teymur, so it will be a challenge."

If everything goes according to plan and Fishgold wins, going up the ladder in UFC is the only goal of 145 pounds.

"My next fight must be someone who will push me through the ranks. I want to progress, if you're not pushing for the title, you're in the wrong promotion.

"I want to get two or three more fights before the end of the year, be it light or light, I'll be ready for the last minute touch-ups. Four fights this year would be a great result for me."

As for Stockholm, the former fighter Cage Warriors wants to give the city and his fans something to remember when he clashes with Amirkhani, who is 14-3 and 5-1 in the UFC.
