Tom Watson vs. Stanislav Nedkov Added To UFC on FUEL TV 7
UFC confirmed the bout over the weekend.
30 year old Tom "Kong" Watson (15-5) entered the UFC after earning a big reputation fighting for BAMMA, where he won the middleweight title, defending it three times. Considered by many to be the second best English middleweight, behind Michael Bisping, Watson got off to a disappointing start with the UFC, losing a decision against Brad Tavares on the undercard of UFC on FUEL TV 5, which took place in Nottingham. Watson will need to show the kind of form he displayed in wins over Jack Marshmann, John Maguire, Alex Reid and Ninja Rua if he wants to get the win.
31 year old Stanislav "Stucky" Nedkov (12-0) actually lost for the first time in his career when Thiago Silva tapped him out in the co-main event of UFC on FUEL TV 6. That loss was turned to a no contest when it was revealed that Silva once again failed a drug test. Now the still undefeated Bulgarian has made the choice to drop down to 185lbs for the first time in his career. Nedkov made a name for himself by scoring knockout wins over veterans Kevin Randleman and Travis Wiuff before joining the UFC. His UFC debut saw him upset Luiz Cane at UFC 134 in Brazil.
