The UFC has inked English flyweight Phil "Billy" Harris (21-9-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) to a multi-fight deal. |
Harris' reps at Intensiti Fighter Management today confirmed the signing with MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com), though financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
A debut date and opponent are expected to be determined shortly, the fighter's reps confirmed.
The 28-year-old Harris joins the UFC's newest division, which was launched earlier this year. The 125-pound weight class soon will have a champion when Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson meet for the inaugural flyweight championship. The bout is the finale of a four-man tournament that launched in March.
Harris, who fights out of GYM 01 in Portsmouth, England, brings a solid resume to the division. Undefeated at flyweight, he's currently riding a five-win streak that includes recent victories in the U.K.-based BAMMA and Cage Warriors organizations.
In 21 career wins, the nine-year pro has posted 13 submissions and four knockouts. Most recently, Harris scored a decision victory over "The Ultimate Fighter 14" contestant Casey Dyer at Cage Warriors Fight Night 4 in March.
Harris is widely considered Europe's top flyweight.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
