Friday Fight Update

 

Three bout announcements kick off the last weekend before next week's trio of UFC events in Las Vegas, and fans in London and Boston will be treated to some interesting matchups everywhere from light heavyweight to lightweight.

Tickets are on sale now for the UFC's return to London on February 27, and it's no surprise that Birmingham's own Tom Breese will be back at home in England for the event. In a welterweight bout, the unbeaten southpaw, fresh from a knockout of Cathal Pendred, will put his perfect record on the line against Japan's Keita Nakamura.

In Boston, the January 17 show at TD Garden got a change and an addition to the fight card. In the lightweight division, an injury to Beneil Dariush has brought in New York's Chris Wade to face Mairbek Taisumov, and at 205 pounds, highly-touted Octagon newcomer Abdul-Kerim Edilov makes his UFC debut against Brazil's Francimar Barroso. Tickets are now on sale for UFC Fight Night Boston.
