Shore vs Valiev official for UFC London

A mouth-watering UFC Bantamweight fight between Jack Shore and Timur Valiev has been made official.
The two will meet at UFC Fight Night 204 in London, on March 19th.

Shore will be looking to defend his 15-0 unbeaten record in front of his home fans in the UK and look to build on what has been a very impressive start to his UFC career going 4-0 since joining the promotion from Cage Warriors back in 2019. The 26-year old had beat former TUF contender Liudvik Sholinian by Unanimous Decision last time out.
He also holds a decision win over Hunter Azure and the BJJ black belt got his first 2 UFC wins via submission against Aaron Phillips and Nohelin Hernandez.

However, his next match up looks to be his hardest challenge yet, coming up against 18-2, battle-hardened Dagestani Timur Valiev.

Although he only joined the UFC in 2020 he made an instant impact, winning Fight of the Night in his decision win against Raoni Barcelos.
Despite his short UFC tenure the 32-year old is in no way short of experience, fighting in the PFL and WSOF and has not been beaten since his loss to Chris Gutierrez at WSOF28 back in 2016.
He also boasts a Master of Sport in Sambo and BJJ brown belt under Ricardo Almeida
