Youth is often the name of the game whenever a division requires a fresh infusion of young hunger via Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. In today’s episode of¬†Across The Pond,¬†you will be introduced to a tiger of the burning torch ready to send the featherweight division a burning message of arrival as the latest graduate of the show’s sixth season. A professional mixed martial artist since November 2019 and representing Pellegrino Mixed Martial Arts, Francis Marshall¬†owns an undefeated 7-0 record comprised of four submissions, one knockout, and two decisions. Marshall secured his contract from the UFC during the second week of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Season six in 2022.
