BAMMA champion Tom Watson has joined the UFC.
The British middleweight's BAMMA contract expired in March and that allowed to answer the UFC call-up, with his debut likely to take place on the card in Nottingham this September.
Watson rides a three-fight win streak into the UFC with victories over Alex Reid, Murilo â€˜Ninjaâ€™ Rua and Jack Marshman.
He also holds victories over John Maguire - of â€˜gypsy jiu jitsuâ€™ fame - and the eccentric but talented Matt Horwich.
Watson, who has a professional record of 15-4, is based in England but is part of Greg Jacksonâ€™s team and conducts his training camps in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Watson's signing has not been officially announced or confirmed by the UFC.
