With news announced only yesterday that former Cage Warriors and Warrior Fight Series Middleweight Jack Hermansson had signed with the UFC, the promotion did not waste time in getting his promotional debut announced.
Hermansson will take on Brit Scott Askham at #UFCHamburg on 3rd September.
Askham is coming off a huge head kick KO over Chris Dempsey at UFC London in February and was due to compete at the TUF 23 finale but was removed from the card following issues with his visa application.
Hermansson enters this fight on an eight fight win streak which saw him pick up two Middleweight Titles for Cage Warriors and Warrior Fight Series.
The #UFCHamburg card at present now looks like this;
Andrei Arlovski Vs Josh Barnett
Ryan Bader Vs Ilir Latifi
Jack Hermansson Vs Scott Askham
