UFC officials announced the new bout on Saturday.
Following a successful career in several different promotions including BAMMA in England, Tom “Kong” Watson finally made his UFC debut in September.
Watson came up just short losing by split decision to Brad Tavares in his debut, but now looks to bounce back in his home country.
Facing Watson will be Bulgarian fighter Stanislav Nedkov who moves to 185lbs after spending the first two fights of his UFC career at light heavyweight.
Nedkov lost his last fight to Thiago Silva in China, but the fight was overturned with his opponent tested positive for marijuana.
Now Nedkov makes his move to middleweight in England, facing Watson at UFC on Fuel 7 in London.
