Jack Marshman made his first UFC appearance against Magnus Cedenblad at UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast on Nov. 19.
He won that fight via stoppage in the second round, earning performance of the night honours.
The Welsh man from Abertillery in Wales, UK, now makes his second voyage to the octagon at UFC Fight Night 105 on February 19, 2017 at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. His rumoured opponent is dangerous Brazilian, Thiago Santos. This promises to be a slugfest, and if Marshman can top the Brazilian, it is a huge name for him and Tillery Combat MMA Academy!
