An intriguing lightweight contest has been made official for the UFC’s return to England, as Melvin Guillard faces Ross Pearson.
The bout will serve as the co-main event for UFC Fight Night 30 on October 26 from Manchester, England. It was announced on “UFC Tonight” Tuesday night.
In the main event, Michael Bisping faces Mark Munoz at middleweight.
Pearson (15-6) is a perfect 2-0 since returning to lightweight after a run in the featherweight division. He has finished both Ryan Couture and George Sotiropoulos.
Guillard (31-12-2) snapped a two-fight losing skid by besting Mac Danzig last month.
