Nathaniel Wood had to pull out of UFC285 Edwards v Usman with an injury against another top English talent Lerone Murphy. The prospect was coming off back-to-back wins against Charles Jourdain and Charles Rosa where Nathaniel Wood won both by decision.

With Lerone and Nathaniel having a back-and-forth on social media throwing jabs at each other, this is one English MMA fans would love to see in the future if both keep winning. There will be a head-on collision down the line.

Most English MMA fans think Andre Fili vs Nathaniel Wood has the potential of being the fight of the night on July 22nd in London. Being the third fight of the main card, it will set the tone for the co-main and main event in the 02.

Nathaniel Wood thus far in the UFC has had two finishes via submission however when “The Prospect’ was talking on ‘The Jay Billing Podcast’ ‘ Nathaniel predicted this would be the first knockout finish he’ll get in the UFC since making his debut in 2018.


Since moving up to featherweight (145lbs) we’ve seen Nathaniel’s game evaluate to a new level where he’s looked impressive against perennial contender Charles Jourdain and against Charles Rosa in England last July. Nathaniel Wood called it quits on the Bantamweight division (135lbs) after a unanimous decision loss to Casey Kenney on UFC 254 in ​​Abu Dhabi.


With an impressive win against Andre Fili, we could possibly see the prospect get a match-up against one of the top 15 or even against Lerone Murphy.
