With the UFC heading back to London, England in February for their seventh Fuel TV offering, Fighters Only has reported that the promotion looks to add countryman Che Mills to the bill, pairing him with Matt Riddle.
Riddle (7-3), has been quite outspoken about his disdain for fighting overseas, citing jet lag and an overtly hostile crowd as reasons for a poor showing against Nick Osipczak in his last visit across the pond in 2009. “Deep Waters” is undefeated in his last three fights, taking victories over Henry Martinez and John Maguire, with a win over Chris Clements being overturned behind testing positive for marijuana in July.
Mills (15-5) is 2-1 inside the UFC. The “Solid Killer” most recently rebounded from a loss to the surging Rory MacDonald, by taking a TKO stoppage due to injury over Duane Ludwig at UFC: Nottingham.
UFC on Fuel TV 7 is slated to take place at Wembley Arena in London in February, with more bouts expected to be announced soon.
