UFC’s UK office just announced on the Twitter that Gunnar Nelson (10-0) will fight at the UFC on Fuel 7 show on the 16th of February. At the Wembley Arena the Icelandic phenom will meet American Justin Edwards (8-2).

Gunnar Nelson is 1-0 in the UFC after winning his debut in impressive way at the UFC on Fuel show in September in Nottingham, England. The icelandic talent made quick work of his opponent DaMarques Johnson and submitted him with a rear naked choke after three minutes of fighting. Nelson has taken all his ten wins by stoppages and the last six by submissions.

American Justin Edwards came to the UFC from the Ultimate Fighter: Lesnar vs Dos Santos show. He is currently 2-2 in the UFC. In his last fight in October Edwards got the biggest win of his career when he choked highly regarded veteran Josh Neer unconscious with a guillotine choke in the first round.
