As any UKMMA fan worth their salt will know, the UFC have been shopping for talent on these shores recently. With the big show returning to the UK at the end of September, it was always on the cards that they would look to add more domestic talent and they have picked the cream of the crop from the 205, 185 and 125 pound divisions.
For the benefit of those who may have just crawled out from under their rock when they heard the news that I had posted a new blog: The new signees are Jimi Manuwa at light heavyweight, Tom Watson in the middleweight division and Phil Harris at Flyweight.
All will be well into their fight camps, preparing to take to the biggest MMA stage of them all. In this post, I’m going to break down their upcoming fights and my own thoughts on their potential progress in the premier league of Mixed Martial Arts.
