Jack Hermansson, Jared Cannonier to Headline UFC Fight Night Card in Copenhagen

By Cole Shelton Jul 3, 2019

Jack Hermansson has received his wish to headline UFC Copenhagen on Sept. 28. But, he did not get the fight he asked for in Kelvin Gastelum.

As a consolation, Hermansson will take on Jared Cannonier, according to manager Malki Kawa. ESPN’s Brett Okamoto then clarified he was being told this will be the main event.

Hermansson is coming off a decision win over Ronaldo Souza at UFC Fort Lauderdale to extend his winning streak to four. Before “Jacare,” he beat David Branch via submission in under a minute. “The Joker” has been clamoring to fight on the UFC Copenhagen card since it was announced.

Cannonier, meanwhile, last saw action in a TKO win over Anderson Silva at UFC 237. The win pushed his winning streak to two, and improved his record at middleweight to 2-0. In his middleweight debut he knocked out Branch in the second round back at UFC 230.

UFC Copenhagen will air live on ESPN+ on Sept. 28.
