UFC signs British flyweight Phil Harris

Quote:
The UFC has inked English flyweight Phil "Billy" Harris (21-9-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) to a multi-fight deal.

Harris' reps at Intensiti Fighter Management today confirmed the signing with MMAjunkie.com, though financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

A debut date and opponent are expected to be determined shortly, the fighter's reps confirmed.

The 28-year-old Harris joins the UFC's newest division, which was launched earlier this year. The 125-pound weight class soon will have a champion when Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson meet for the inaugural flyweight championship. The bout is the finale of a four-man tournament that launched in March.

Harris, who fights out of GYM 01 in Portsmouth, England, brings a solid resume to the division. Undefeated at flyweight, he's currently riding a five-win streak that includes recent victories in the U.K.-based BAMMA and Cage Warriors organizations.

In 21 career wins, the nine-year pro has posted 13 submissions and four knockouts. Most recently, Harris scored a decision victory over "The Ultimate Fighter 14" contestant Casey Dyer at Cage Warriors Fight Night 4 in March.

Harris is widely considered Europe's top flyweight.

Very very cool. I'm not too knowledgeable about the 125 division but have seen a few of Phil's fights and look forward to getting educated on the weight class And with exciting guys and fights between the likes of Benavidez and Mighty Mouse I'm definitely excited for the future.

It'd be awesome, maybe people would stop calling Palhares that then (although I doubt it..)

Looked it up. It says 0:00 of the 1st round.

From Sherdog:

There is no known video for the fight i remember looking for it years ago, its not even known what time it finished but apparently he finished it in devastating fashion. I would really like to know what happened in that fight.
