UFC on Fuel TV 7

February 16th, 2013

London, England

Wembley Arena


Long-awaited Icelandic prospect, Gunnar Nelson was spectacular in his UFC debut, submitting DaMarques Johnson in the first round at UFC on Fuel TV 5. It was his tenth consecutive victory and maintained his undefeated record that dates back to 2007. Other notable wins in this streak include submission victories over Danny Mitchell and Eugene Fadiora.

Former Sengoku middleweight champ, Jorge Santiago returns to UFC as a Strikeforce transfer. He’s won his last two fights with first round stoppages over Leonardo Pecanha and Justin Guthrie for the Titan Fighting Championships, based out of Kansas City. Santiago hopes the third time is the charm, after amassing an abysmal 1-4 record in the UFC in two different stints.
