UFC London (Fight Night 108)
18th March 2017
O2 Arena, London.
Fights are being announced thick and fast today so I thought we could use a thread to collate all the info and discuss accordingly
So far we've heard:
135: Brad Pickett (25-13) vs. Henry Briones (16-6)
This is the UFC's third attempt at making this fight so let's hope it finally goes ahead! More importantly however after giving Uriah Faber a nice sendoff in his hometown recently this will in fact be Brad Pickett's final MMA fight as retirement beckons. Good luck Brad!
205: Darren Stewart (7-0) vs. Francimar Barroso (18-5)
A rematch from their recent UFC Brazil clash which ended in a No Contest.
185: Scott Askham (14-3) vs. Bradley Scott (10-4)
An all-British clash see's the return of Bradley Scott, a TUF Smashes veteran, for only his 6th UFC fight in over 5 years. Both fighters are 2-3 in the UFC and you would suspect the loser gets his walking papers.
170: Tom Breese (10-1) vs. Oluwale Bamgbose (6-2)
Breese was the UKs most lauded prospect of 2015 before taking his first loss in 2016 against Sean Strickland, he looks to get back to winning ways against Oluwale Bamgbose a former regional champion at 185 for Eastcoast promotion Ring of Combat.
170: Leon Edwards (12-3) vs. Vicente Luque (11-5)
Birmingham's "Rocky" Edwards is now 4-2 in the UFC but he will be taking on Vicente Luque who has KO'd both of his last two opponents inside the first round.
155: Marc Diakiese (11-0) vs. Teemu Packalen (8-1)
A top European clash and another great test of Diakiese's metal, Teemu Packalen secured a 24-second sub in his last fight showing he is a dangerous opponent.
