Fabian Edwards will square off against Jonathan Bosuku at Bellator London on June 22.
The unbeaten middleweight prospect, who is the younger brother of UFC welterweight Leon Edwards, has also signed a new multi-fight contract with the California-based promotion. Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a Bellator official following an initial report from MMAFighting.com.
Bellator London takes place at SSE Arena in London and features a middleweight championship clash between Gegard Mousasi and Rafael Lovato Jr. The card airs on Paramount Network and DAZN in the United States.
The 26-year-old Edwards made a pair of appearances on the promotion’s European Series earlier this year, earning victories over Lee Chadwick and Falco Neto Lopes to improve to 7-0 in his professional career. The latter of those was a highlight-reel finish as “The Assassin” dispatched Lopes with an upkick and follow-up punches at Bellator “Birmingham.”
A native of Paris, the 23-year-old Bosuku enters his Bellator debut on a five-bout winning streak that he compiled on the regional circuit. “Mutant” began his pro tenure with losses in four of his first six appearances and is 7-4 overall.
