Tom "Kong" Watson vs. Stanislav Nedkov Added to UFC on Fuel 7 in England | MMAWeekly.com
A middleweight bout has been added to the UFC on Fuel 7 card in England with Tom “Kong” Watson taking on Stanislav Nedkov in his 185lb debut.
UFC officials announced the new bout on Saturday.
Following a successful career in several different promotions including BAMMA in England, Tom “Kong” Watson finally made his UFC debut in September.
Watson came up just short losing by split decision to Brad Tavares in his debut, but now looks to bounce back in his home country.
Facing Watson will be Bulgarian fighter Stanislav Nedkov who moves to 185lbs after spending the first two fights of his UFC career at light heavyweight.
Nedkov lost his last fight to Thiago Silva in China, but the fight was overturned with his opponent tested positive for marijuana.
Now Nedkov makes his move to middleweight in England, facing Watson at UFC on Fuel 7 in London.
Interesting match-up, but potentially a dangerous one for Watson. Watson didn't have his usual level of cardio in his last night, but if he comes in to this fight in better condition and withstand Nedkov's offense until the second or third round, I can see him outpointing Nedkov with his striking and movement.
