Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing a welterweight co-main event to its UFC Fight Night 107 mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza, locked and loaded for TONIGHT (Sat., March 18, 2017), inside O2 Arena in London, England.
Gunnar Nelson vs. Alan Jouban.
Nelson (15-2-1) jumped out to a stellar 13-0-1 record to kick off his combat sports career and looked poised to make a run at the 170-pound title; however, a pair of losses to Rick Story and Demian Maia over the past few years slowed his momentum.
“Gunni” was last seen submitting Albert Tumenov in May 2016.
Jouban (15-4), meanwhile, has remained one of the more active welterweights since his Octagon debut in late 2014. The part-time model struggled to find consistency early on, but is now the winner of three consecutive fights, including last December’s unanimous decision win over Mike Perry.
