Gunnar Nelson vs. Cláudio Silva Targeted For UFC London In March

UFC welterweights Gunnar Nelson and Cláudio Silva are expected to meet at the UFC's return to London, England on March 19.

MMA journalist Alfredo Zullino was the first to report the news of the matchup via a tweet, although the promotion has yet to officially announce anything itself regarding the bout. Nelson is 1-3 in his last four fights and is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to former UFC title challenger, Gilbert Burns, back at UFC Fight Night 160 in September 2019. Silva meanwhile is 5-2 in his seven Octagon appearances and will try to rebound from a unanimous decision defeat to Court McGee at UFC Vegas 27.
