UFC 304 will go down in Manchester, England, on July 27th inside the Co-op Live Arena. Dana White took to social media today to announce the entire main card for the event, which includes two title fights and a UK superstar.

Two Title Fights

The main event for UFC 304 will be Leon Edwards vs. Belal Muhammad. This fight is a rematch, with their first fight occurring in March 20221, which was a No Contest following an illegal eye poke from Edwards.

Since the No Contest with Muhammad, Edwards has been on a winning streak. He has secured wins over Nate Diaz, Kamaru Usman, and Colby Covington, successfully defending his title twice. As he steps into the octagon in Manchester for the first time, he aims to add another impressive win to his record.

Muhammad has won five straight since the Edwards fight, racking up important wins over Gilbert Burns, Vicente Luque, and Sean Brady. This will be his first UFC Championship fight but his third promotional main event.

The co-main event will feature Tom Aspinall, who is looking to defend his Interim Heavyweight Championship against Curtis Blaydes. This matchup is also another rematch stemming from a controversial first fight, with Blaydes TKOing Aspinall in 12 seconds due to the Englishman suffering a leg injury.


Featured Fights

Also on the card will be UK superstar Paddy "The Baddy" Pimblett. He will take on his first UFC-ranked opponent, Bobby "King" Green, in a three-rounder. Pimblett is undefeated in the UFC, having won impressive wins over Tony Ferguson and Jordan Leavitt, whereas Green is a longtime veteran coming off a classic performance vs. Jim Miller.

Arnold Allen vs. Giga Chikadze has also been confirmed for the card, as has a bout between Flyweight prospects Muhammad Mokaev and Manel Kape. The undercard will also feature notable UK talent like Nathaniel Wood and Molly McCann.
