Londoner Jason Young (9-5) is the latest addition to the UFC on Fuel 5 card in Nottingham, England on September 29th. Another Brit on the UFC's roster, he'll be sure to have some great support at the Capital FM Arena.

Young is slated to meet American Robbie Peralta (15-3) in a featherweight contest, first reported by Gareth Davies. This has now been confirmed to YourMMA.tv

"Shotgun" got the first win of his UFC career last time out when he went up against Eric Wisely at UFC Sweden. He'll be looking to capitalise on that momentum in Nottingham, although a loss could put him in a precarious position. With the right people around him at Team Titan and American Top Team, however, Young will be prepared .

After beating Mike Lullo in his UFC debut, Peralta has his second UFC win changed to a no contest after it was deemed a headbutt caused him to TKO Mackens Semerzier. A rematch was set but never came off due to injury. He's been out of action since November 2011, so Young will be hoping his activity levels will set him in good stead.

With most of Peralta's wins coming via knockout, he matches up well with Young who prefers to stay at the striking range. It should be an interesting contest on the UFC's undercard in Nottingham.

This adds to the growing main card which will be headlined by Stefan Struve vs. Stipe Miocic.

The UFC On Fuel 5 fight card on September 29th so far looks like this:

Stipe Miocic vs. Stefan Struve
Dan Hardy vs. Amir Sadollah
Brad Pickett vs. Yves Jabouin
Paul Sass vs. Matt Wiman
Che Mills vs. Duane Ludwig
Andy Ogle vs. Akira Corassani
Jason Young vs. Robbie Peralta
