Former Bellator Fighter Chris Duncan will reportedly make his UFC debut at UFC 286 PPV.
Duncan will face former Cage Warriors fighter Michal Figlak. The news came from Combat Sports UK which reported the lightweight bout for UFC PPV in London, UK.
Scotland native Duncan was signed to UFC after a first-round knockout win in Dana White Contender Series 2022 over Charlie Campbell. That was his second appearance in DWCS after the 2021 season where he suffered a knockout loss to Viacheslav Borshchev after a change of opponent and two weeks’ notice.
Overall 9-1 in MMA, Duncan also has a 3- record in Bellator MMA. He made his Bellator debut at Bellator 217 in Dublin, Ireland, where he defeated Sam Slater via first-round knockout. He repeated that performance against Mateusz Piskorz in Dublin once again at Bellator 240 before beating Iamik Furtado at Bellator 247 in Milan, Italy.
Michal Figlak(8-1) will try to bounce back from a loss in his UFC debut against Fares Ziam in September last year. That was the first career loss for Figlak who has previously fought in UK primarily under Cage Warriors.
UFC 286 PPV will take place on March 18, 2023, in London, UK. The event does not have a headliner yet. However, Casey O’Neill’s return against Jennifer Maia, Nathaniel Wood vs Leron Murphy, and Daniel Rodriguez vs Gunnar Nelson are some of the fights scheduled for the event.
