UFC President Dana White recently took to social media to announce some major news that UK fight fans have been waiting for.

The entire main card for UFC 304 in Manchester is confirmed with two title fights announced and a big clash between two fan favourites.

In the main event at the Co-Op Live Arena on July 27, welterweight champion Leon Edwards will look to defend the belt on home soil for the second time.

He faces the consensus number one contender at 170-pounds in Belal Muhammad who met "Rocky" for the first time back in 2021 where the fight ended in a no contest due to an accidental eye poke in the second round.

This result aside, Muhammad has produced a nine-fight win streak to earn his shot at the belt as he looks to bring Edwards' incredible run to an end.

The co-main event features another title fight rematch after the fight encounter ended in disappointing fashion.

The only blemish on the UFC run of interim heavyweight champion Tom Aspinall is his fight with Curtis Blaydes in London which ended in just 15 seconds due to a knee injury for the Brit.

Now, he will fight in Manchester for the first time since his pro debut in a defence of the interim belt against Blaydes who has gone 1-1 since his previous encounter with Aspinall.

Also announced by the UFC boss for this card is the return of Paddy "The Baddy" Pimblett who will be taking on the #15-ranked lightweight contender in Bobby Green.

"King" Green called for this fight after his impressive showing against Jim Miller at UFC 300 and given their exciting styles and contrasting personalities, this is one that a lot of people have been hoping to see booked next.

The three new additions round out the PPV main card that is set to go down in the early hours of Sunday morning for the UK fans.

Also featuring on the main card are two other big fights for their respective divisions as ranked fighters in Arnold Allen and Giga Chikadze face off at featherweight whilst Muhammad Mokaev takes on Manel Kape at flyweight in what could be a title eliminator.
