UFC has confirmed the first three bouts to take place at UFC Fight Night London in February 2016.
The hotly-anticipated event will return to The O2 on Saturday 27 February 2016, following a hugely successful event in 2014.
(#7) Michael Bisping v (#8) Gegard Mousasi
Mike Wilkinson v Makwan Amirkhani
Norman Parke v Rustam Khabilov
Bisping’s last fight at the iconic venue saw him walk away not only with a victory but also the Fight of the Night bonus for his performance. “The Count” will be looking for history to repeat itself in London this February. Standing in his way is former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi who will be no easy competitor with notable wins over Dan Henderson and Costas Philippou. Expect fireworks when these two collide.
The same goes for England’s Wilkinson and Finland’s Amirkhani, both considered to be rising UFC talents not to overlook going into 2016.
Following a win in Dublin last month over Reza Madadi, Parke will be also looking to put on a show-stopping performance and climb the lightweight ladder while Khabilov hopes to prove he remains a force at 155 pounds.
