UFC 286 Update: Jack Shore to Face Makwan Amirkhani in London
A featherweight bout between Jack Shore and Makwan Amirkhani has been added to the UFC 286 lineup.
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Tuesday. UFC 286 takes place at the O2 Arena in London on March 18 and is headlined by a welterweight championship clash between Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman.
Shore suffered his first loss in 17 professional appearances at UFC on ABC 3, where he suffered a second-round submission loss to Ricky Simon this past July. The former Cage Warriors champion began his Octagon tenure with five consecutive triumphs prior to that defeat.
Amirkhani has struggled recently, with losses in four of his last five UFC bouts. In his last outing, “Mr. Finland” suffered a second-round TKO loss to Jonathan Pearce at UFC Fight Night 208 on July 23. Amirkhani began his promotional tenure with victories in five of his first six appearances but is just 2-5 in UFC competition since November 2019.
