Blaydes (16-3 MMA) will enter the main event sporting a two-fight winning streak, his latest being a TKO victory over Chris Daukaus. ‘Razor’ has gone 6-1 over his past seven fights overall, with his lone loss in that time coming against Derrick Lewis.

UFC London is co-headlined by a middleweight contest featuring Jack Hermansson taking on Chris Curtis.

‘The Joker’ was initially slated to face Darren Till at the event, but ‘The Gorilla’ was forced to pullout of the fight due to injury.

Hermansson (22-7 MMA) will enter tonight’s contest looking to rebound, this after suffering a split-decision loss to Sean Strickland his last time out. Prior to that setback, the Swede was coming off a decision win over Edmen Shahbazyan.

Meanwhile, Chris Curtis (29-8 MMA) most recently competed at last month’s UFC Vegas 57 event, where he extended his current win streak to eight in a row with a unanimous decision victory over Rodolfo Vieira.

Also featured on today’s UFC London main card is the return of fan favorite lightweight Paddy Pimblett (18-3 MMA). ‘The Baddy’ is set to take on Jordan Leavitt (10-1 MMA) in front of a hometown crowd.

If that wasn’t already enough to get you watching, today’s UFC London event also features the return of Alexander Gustafsson. ‘The Mauler’ is set to square off with Nikita Krylov in a light heavyweight contest.
