By Guilherme Cruz

The UFC officially announced five bouts for its return to London’s O2 Arena on March 18, including Brad Pickett‘s retirement fight against Enrique Briones.

Pickett (25-13) recently faced Urijah Faber in Faber’s retirement bout in Sacramento, losing via unanimous decision and dropping to 1-5 in his six UFC fights.

Briones (16-6-1), a former TUF: Latin America contestant, is 1-2 in the UFC, including a decision loss to current bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt. The 36-year-old fighter stopped his opponent in 14 of his 16 MMA wins.

UFC Fight Night 107 will also feature a lightweight clash between Marc Diakiese and Teemu Packalen, a welterweight bout featuring Tom Breese and Oluwale Bamgbose, Bradley Scott vs. Scott Askham in the middleweight division, and a rematch between light heavyweights Darren Stewart and Francimar Barroso.

Diakiese (11-0) looks to improve his perfect MMA record after scoring a pair of UFC wins over Frankie Perez and Lukasz Sajewski, while Packalen (8-1) returns to action a year after his 24-second submission over Thibault Gouti in London.

Breese (10-1) enters the bout coming off the first loss of his MMA career, a split decision against Sean Strickland Click for Full Story
