Tom Watson is headed to the UFC, company officials announced on Thursday. Watson’s BAMMA contract expired this past March, leaving him available to secure fighting services elsewhere.
Watson is the current BAMMA middleweight champion. “Kong” will make his debut inside the Octagon this September from Nottingham, England against Brad Tavares.
Watson has defeated the likes of Murilo “Ninja” Rua, Jack Marshman and John Maguire during his career. He sports an overall mark of 15-4 and trains with Greg Jackson in New Mexico for his camps.
