In a Britain heavy card, Arnold Allen will also be facing his toughest test yet in Dan ‘The Hangman’ Hooker.
With a breathtaking card in-store, there’s one individual that seems to have gone slightly under the radar.
The Return of Nathaniel Wood Should Not Go Unnoticed
Fighting out of Morden, England, Nathaniel ‘The Prospect’ Wood will be making his highly anticipated return to the cage.
Unfortunately, his last outing back in October of 2020 didn’t go his way. Wood lost to Casey Kenney at UFC 254.
At UFC London, ‘The Prospect’ is eager to show the MMA faithful what he is capable of and why you should not sleep on him.
After impressing on the regional promotions, in 2018, Dana White offered Wood the chance to compete in the UFC.
Following an impressive ‘Performance of the Night’ victory against Johnny Eduardo, Nathaniel followed it up with wins over Andre Ewell and José Alberto Quiñónez.
Wood’s last win came in July 2020 against John Castañeda via decision. With fourteen out of his seventeen professional wins coming via finish, there’s no doubt that ‘The Prospect’ is looking to put on a spectacle for the fans.
Therefore, a win over Liudvik Sholinian at UFC London will certainly do Wood wonders for his career. How far and Wood climb up the rankings in 2022?
