Rob Broughton Now Meets Phil De Fries at UFC 138 After Injury Bug Bites Oli Thompson

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Another change has been made to the upcoming UFC card in England with Oli Thompson being forced off the show with an injury and fellow British fighter Rob Broughton has agreed to step in and face Phil De Fries on Nov 5.

UFC officials announced the switch on Monday.

There were no details regarding Thompson’s injuries, but unfortunately the heavyweight prospect will have to wait a bit longer to make his UFC debut.

Rob Broughton returns to action after suffering a loss to Travis Browne at UFC 135 last month in Denver.

Broughton now sits with a 1-1 record in the Octagon with hopes of picking up a second win when he returns home to England in Nov.
