Jack Marshman Pulled From UFC Fight Night London

Fabricio Werdum UFC

In the main event of the evening former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum takes on Alexander Volkov.

On Saturday, March 17, the Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to the O2 Arena in London, England, for UFC Fight Night 127: Werdum vs. Volkov.

Volkov (29-6) has just three UFC bouts to his credit, but he has won all three, taking decisions over Timothy Johnson and Roy Nelson before scoring a TKO stoppage of Stefan Struve. He faces no easy task in Polish fighter Jan Blachowicz, who is riding back-to-back wins over Devin Clark and Jared Cannonier into Saturday's event.

The co-headliner is an actual rematch. Marshman's manager Graham Boylan spoke to MMA Junkie about the UFC Fight Night London withdrawal and here's what he had to say via MMAmania... Manuwa is coming off a first-round knockout loss to former light heavyweight title contender Volkan Oezdemir, but he is still very much in the mix in the title conversation for a shallow 205-pound division. Check back following the event for the full results.
