Duane Ludwig vs. Che Mills at UFC: Nottingham


Duane Ludwig vs. Che MillsUFC matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby have been burning the midnight oil for quite some time now, but even they have had to step it up a notch with so many events slated for this year. The latest fight card to start its flow of fights is UFC on Fuel TV 5 in Nottingham, England.

UFC: Nottingham recently had Stefan Struve vs. Stipe Miocic named for its main event. UFC officials on Tuesday confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Duane Ludwig and Che Mills would also step into the Octagon on Sept. 29 in England.

Ludwig (21-13) has face a tough tenure during his recent run in the UFC. He is 2-4 in his last six UFC bouts, coming off of back-to-back losses to Dan Hardy and Josh Neer.

The road to redemption doesn’t get any easier for Ludwig, either. He’ll be stepping in to face Che Mills on the Brit’s home turf.

Mills (14-5) was on a five-fight winning streak before Canadian standout Rory MacDonald derailed him at UFC 145 in Atlanta.

Mills will now be looking for a win over Ludwig to prove his worth in the Octagon, and will be doing so with all of England behind him when lock horns.

UFC on Fuel TV 5 takes place on Sept. 29 at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England. Tickets are already on sale at www.capitalfmarena.com and www.ufc.com.
