Cage Warriors Fighting Championship middleweight king Jack Marshman will make his first promotional foray against Magnus Cedenblad at UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast on Nov. 19.
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Thursday. UFC Fight Night takes place at SSE Arena and is headline by a welterweight duel between Dong Hyun Kim and Gunnar Nelson. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
Marshman was scheduled to defend his CWFC crown against Andreas Michailidis on Oct. 15 but the Welshman has vacated that belt to sign with the UFC. The 26-year-old Welshman has won six straight fights and is 20-5 as a professional overall. Seventeen of his triumphs have come by knockout, technical knockout or submission.
After dropping his promotional debut against Francis Carmont, Cedenblad has won four straight in the UFC. Most recently, the Stockholm native scored a second-round TKO of Garretth McLellan at UFC Fight Night in Rotterdam on May 8.
