The UFC is heading back to England on October 26 in Manchester, having already announced that a middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz would headline the card.
The co-main event will be a battle of two lightweights, as England’s own Ross Pearson fights Melvin Guillard. The news was announced on UFC Tonight.
Guillard just won, a bit over a week ago against Mac Danzig where he scored a vicious second round knockout. The win snapped Guillard’s two fight losing streak that he brought in to the fight.
Pearson comes off two wins in a row, both via way of TKO from strikes. In his last outing, he stopped Ryan Couture in the second round at UFC on Fuel TV 9, in Sweden in April.
