Longtime middleweight standout Tom Watson (15-4) has finally signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Watson, whoâ€™s flown under the radar the last few years, despite picking up notable victories over quality opposition such as Murilo â€œNinjaâ€ Rua, John Maguire and Matt Horwich, enters the UFC ranks having picked up 11 wins in his last 12 fights.
Watson and Tavares are tapped to collide at UFC on FUEL TV 5.
The action emanates from the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England (where Watson will enjoy the luxury of a partisan crowd) on September 29th; A heavyweight tilt pitting Stipe Miocic versus Stefan Struve serves as the eveningâ€™s main event.
