This past Tuesday Manchester-born Brendan Loughnane became the first Englishman to compete on Dana White’s Contender Series. He fought Bill Algeo to a unanimous decision win.
The 29-year-old has been knocking on UFC’’s door ever since his sole trip to the Octagon in 2012, when he lost to fellow Englishman Mike Wilkinson in Queensland, Australia.
