Welterweights Gunnar Nelson and Justin Edwards have received a slot on the UFC’s return to England. The two will be part of UFC on Fuel TV: Barao vs. McDonald in February.
The card takes place February 16 from Wembley Arena. In the main event, Renan Barao will face Michael McDonald for the interim UFC bantamweight title. Nelson-Edwards is likely for the prelims.
Nelson (10-0-1) is coming off a victory in his UFC debut over DaMarques Johnson. All 10 of his career wins have come via stoppage.
Edwards (8-2) has split his four UFC bouts, but is coming off a career-defining knockout victory over Josh Neer earlier this year.
