The UFC have confirmed the current fight card for UFC On Fuel 7 at Wembley Arena in London, February 16th.

Topped by the interim bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and Michael McDonald, eleven fights are official as of this morning.

If the format remains the same as the previous Fuel cards, then there will be six main card bouts, and five supporting on the preliminary card as it stands.

UFC On Fuel 7 Fight Card

Main Card

Interim Bantamweight Title

Renan Barao vs. Michael McDonald

Dennis Siver vs. Cub Swanson

Jimi Manuwa vs. Cyrille Diabate
Gunnar Nelson vs. Justin Edwards
Che Mills vs. Matt Riddle
Terry Etim vs. Renee Forte

Preliminary Card

Paul Sass vs. Danny Castillo
Tom Watson vs. Stanislav Nedkov
Andy Ogle vs. Josh Grispi
Vaughan Lee vs. Motonobu Tezuka
Phil Harris vs. Ulysses Gomez

Experienced UFC Brit Terry Etim makes the main card, but relative newcomers such as Che Mills and Jimi Manuwa also get the nod, presumably because of how their exciting styles have played out in their respective early Zuffa bouts. Iceland's popular grappler Gunnar Nelson also gets a main card spot.

The quality fights spill over into the prelims, and there's no shortage of well-matched bouts on offer for the UFC's return to London.

Fuel cards have ranged between 9-12 bouts, so there could still be more added. Jimmo vs. Te Huna was confirmed previously by the UFC, but hasn't made the official card on www.UFC.com just yet.
