Tom “Kong” Watson’s (16-6) next UFC appearance will be back in the UK as he takes on fellow European middleweight Alessio Sakara (19-10-0-1).
Watson was last in action at UFC 163 in a loosing effort against Thales Leites which brought his record to 1-2 in the promotion. Sakara has amazingly been apart of the UFC since 2005 but also has a loosing record going 6-7(1), this includes a current three-fight-skid.
Sakara looked impressive last time out against Cote and was controversially disqualified for illegal strikes. Both fighters are brawlers and this should make for an exciting ‘stand and bang’ affair.
