The UFC is looking to mimic the success it found with its first UFC London card in 2022 with another jam-packed event featuring two of England’s biggest stars – Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann. McCann had been previously announced for the card and many had assumed Pimblett would be included as well, and now he has a fight.
Pimblett (18-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) will square off with another fan favorite when he takes on Jordan Leavitt (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) in July.
The fights already announced for the UFC London card are:
