Today’s UFC London event 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 (23-7 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 (29-9 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.
