The Ultimate Fighting Championship will hold UFC Fight Night 127 from the O2 Arena in London, England, March 17. The St. Paddy’s day event will be streamed live exclusively on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 1:45 p.m. EST.
In the main event, former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum (23-7-1 NC) took on former Bellator heavyweight champion Alexander Volkov (29-6). Volkov just put his name on the short list of potential future title contenders after knocking out the Brazilian in the fourth round.
In the co-main event slot, Jan Blachowicz (21-7) met Jimi Manuwa (17-3) in a light heavyweight rematch. This time the results were just the opposite.
