Nathaniel Wood vs. Jose Quinonez among three fights announced for UFC London


Nathaniel Wood will look to defend his home turf in his next fight.

The UFC on Wednesday announced that Wood, a former Cage Warriors champion, will compete in England, where he’ll meet Jose Quinonez in a bantamweight bout at UFC on ESPN+ 5.

The booking was announced along with two featherweight bouts for the March 16 event at The O2. Englishmen Mike Grundy and Nad Narimani will fight each other, as well as Danny Henry vs. Dan Ige.

Wood (15-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC), 25, will enter on a seven-fight winning streak, which includes finishes in his first two UFC fights. In his promotional debut last June, Wood submitted Johnny Eduardo with a brabo choke. He followed that up at UFC 232 by tapping out Andre Ewell via rear-naked choke.

Quinonez (7-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC), meanwhile, has won four fights in a row but hasn’t competed since last February at UFC 221. The Mexican fighter’s past three victories have come by unanimous decision.
