London is calling. The card grows stronger by the day and having Paul Craig face off against #9 ranked Nikita Krylov just adds even more reason for UK fans to scramble for tickets.
Paul “Bearjew” Craig has been booked for his latest octagon appearance, and this time, it is much closer to home. The UFC will be returning to the UK on March 19th, and their home for the week will be London.
In the light heavyweight division, Craig will be squaring off against #9 ranked Nikita Krylo. A win would grow the Scot’s current four-fight win streak and put him comfortably in the top ten. A win would potentially see Craig gain the opportunity to fight a higher ranked opponent.
He has to get through Krylov first. While the Ukrainian is coming off a loss to Magomed Ankalaev, he is still very dangerous in his own right. With 12 victories in the promotion, Krylov is a test for anybody who stands in the opposite corner.
The bout is officially confirmed and already has the fans talking. With the current strength of the card already, boasting names like Paddy Pimblett, Molly McCann, and Tom Aspinall, just to name a few, Paul Craig truly has the opportunity to shine alongside his British and European counterparts.
Will Paul Craig pick up a win close to his home territory, or will Nikita Krylov spoil his homecoming and get back in the win column? Come March 19th. We will find out.
