UFC 204 Adds Welterweight Bout Leon Edwards Vs. Albert Tumenov


A pair of welterweights looking to continue their climb up the UFC rankings will square off this October at UFC 204, as Leon Edwards meets Albert Tumenov.

Edwards (11-3) has gone 3-2 over a five-fight run with the promotion, including a recent decision win over Dominic Waters. He earned himself a fight-night bonus with an eight-second knockout of Seth Baczynski in Poland as part of a two-fight win streak.

Tumenov (17-3) owns a mark of 5-2 with the UFC, highlighted by five consecutive victories and three knockouts. He earned a bonus with a knockout of Alan Jouban back at UFC 192, but is coming off a second round submission defeat at the hands of Gunnar Nelson in May.

UFC 204 takes place October 8 from the Manchester Arena in England. Michael Bisping defends his middleweight title against Dan Henderson in the main event, while Vitor Belfort battles Gegard Mousasi in the co-headliner.
