Gunnar Nelson & Anthony Pettis Want On UFC Fight Night London Card


It is just a little over two months before UFC Fight Night London takes place and the card is starting to fill up with a lot of big name talent.

Two fighters would like to add their name to the card in the form of Gunnar Nelson and former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis.

When it comes to Nelson, a perfect opponent on the card would be Darren Till.

“I had a little back and forth with Darren Till not so long ago and I thought that was going to happen,” Nelson said on The MMA Hour. “They haven’t scheduled anything yet. It looks like he’s calling everyone out and I said I’m here, but nothing is happening. Yeah, I would love that fight. He’s saying he’s not getting any opponents, he’s up there, he’s a good fighter and he’s saying that nobody wants to fight him or whatever, so I’m ready and that’s it. He’s ranked up there and I’m willing to fight…I was picturing London. We talked about Liverpool before but I guess that’s not happening. So, yeah, London or wherever, you know.”

Till is expected to be on the card and at one point was rumored to be fighting top ranked welterweight Stephen Thompson.

Pettis also wants to be on the card according to MMA Fighting, but did not name a specific opponent in which he would like to battle.

UFC Fight Night London takes place on Saturday, March 17 from the 02 Arena in London, England with no main event announced at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with broadcast plans not yet announced.
