Another fight has joined UFC’s return to London, England later this year. Lightweights Marc Diakiese and Damir Hadzovic are scheduled to meet at the promotion’s July 23rd event, per an announcement made Tuesday.
The fight is set to take place at the O2 Arena in two months.
Both fighters are being paired up after having similar runs in recent years.
Diakiese snapped a two-fight skid in his last appearance. He handed Viacheslav Borshchev his first UFC loss in March, going three rounds for a unanimous decision result.
Hadzovic also bounced back from a pair of losses in his last outing. He went the distance against Yancy Medeiros last year, pulling out a decision victory in the end.
