Che Mills and Matt Riddle are being lined up for a fight on the 2013 London UFC card, Fighters Only has learned.
The UFC confirmed today that it will be visiting London’s Wembley Arena on Saturday February 16 with ‘UFC on FUEL TV 7’.
Fighters Only was informed several days ago that the organization was looking to match Mills and Riddle on a card early in 2013.
Today the source said that the fight was being lined up for the London show.
Mills fought on UFC on FUEL TV 5 in September, defeating Duane Ludwig in the first round after the veteran suffered a knee ligament tear two minutes into the fight.
He is now 2-1 in the UFC, a loss to Rory MacDonald sandwiched between two first-round wins.
Riddle is 7-3(1) with all eleven fights being under the UFC banner. Riddle is coming off a win over John Maguire at UFC 154 earlier this month.
Fighters Only has also learned that Jimi Manuwa is set to appear on the February card. Manuwa debuted in September with a demolition job on Kyle Kingsbury.
