Jack Marshman vs. John Phillips booked for UFC on ESPN+ 5 in London


A UFC battle of Wales is coming to London.

On Wednesday, the UFC announced that a fight between Welshmen Jack Marshman and John Phillips has been booked for UFC on ESPN+ 5 on March 16 at The O2.

Both Marshman (22-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) and Phillips (21-8 MMA, 0-2 UFC) will enter the bout in desperate need of a victory as they try to avoid losing three straight.

Marshman has dropped three of his last four since 2017. In his most recent bout at UFC 230, Marshman lost by unanimous decision to Karl Roberson.

Phillips, meanwhile, is off to a rough start in the UFC, losing both of his bouts via rear-naked choke submissions.
