5 fights announced for UFC Fight Night Dublin



BT Sport 1 broke some big news today on their UFC Beyond the Octagon program concerning the promotions July 19th visit to Dublin, Ireland.

First off, Gareth A. Davies spoke to UFC welterweight Gunnar Nelson live via satellite from Reykjavik, Iceland about his co-main event bout with Ryan LaFlare. That bout had already been announced in Iceland by Gunni before the airing of this episode. Nelson would express his excitement to Davies about fighting LaFlare in front of the great fans in Ireland. LaFlare and Nelson, two of the best and brightest youngsters in the sport, will enter this fight as undefeated up and comers in the welterweight division looking to make a huge statement.

Following the airing of the Nelson interview, the following four fights were announced for the UFC Dublin card:

• Light Heavyweight: Tom Lawlor vs. Ilir Latifi
• Flyweight: Brad Pickett vs. Ian McCall
• Light Heavyweight: Cody Donovan vs. Nikita Krylov
• Flyweight: Phil Harris vs. Neil Seery

The main event, which has been rumored to be a featherweight showdown between hometown hero Conor McGregor and former lightweight Cole Miller, has still not been officially announced. Ticket information was also announced for the event. We’ll let Sean Sheehan, who has been all over this card do the honors.
