Exclusive: Brendan Loughnane to fight Mike Wilkinson at ACB Manchester

As we brought to you first on Twitter, Brendan Loughnane will face Mike Wilkinson in the feature bout at ACB Manchester on March 11th at Manchester Arena.

Brendan Loughnane (12-2) faces Paul Cook at Tanko 2 this evening but the move to match him up against fellow UFC alumni, Mike Wilkinson was announced on the night.

Wilkinson was released by the UFC following his loss to Makwan Amirkhani at UFC Fight Night London: Silva vs Bisping and has since signed with ACB, losing his first fight by unanimous decision to Soso Nizharadze at ACB 41 in July.

This will be a rematch between the two Englishmen after Wilkinson defeated Brendan Loughnane at UFC on FX 6 in Australia.

Loughnane has gone 7-1 since the defeat whilst Mike Wilkinson has gone 1-3.
