Iceland’s Gunnar Nelson makes a huge move forward in visibility with a main card slot on the upcoming UFC on Fuel TV 7 card. UFC.com has put up the fight card showing the Nelson versus Justin Edwards bout number four on the fight card under the headlining interim title bout between Renan Barao and Michael McDonald.
Typically the main card is reserved for the five most high profile bouts on the card. With just one UFC bout under his belt, a first round submission over DaMarques Johnson at September’s UFC on Fuel TV 5, the move to the main card in his second bout is quite a statement.
Gunnar Nelson (10-0-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) will be facing American Justin Edwards (8-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) in a bout that will take place at London’s Wembley Arena. Edwards is coming off his most impressive win, with an impressive 45 second victory over veteran Josh Neer for Submission of the Night at UFC on FX 5.
