Nicolas Dalby and Tom Breese sign with the UFC


In another boost for European MMA, today, two of biggest prospects from this side or the pond have penned deals to fight with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

England’s Tom Breese and Nicolas Dalby of Denmark have both been added to the UFC roster after ultra successful stints on the regional circuit. The news appeared first on the very reliable UFC Fighters Info’s Twitter and we confirmed the news with sources close to the fighters.

The UFC Fighters Info Twitter uses a script to track any fighter additions or removals from the UFC’s website. You can see all the fighters recently added to the roster here.

Dalby is the current Cage Warriors welterweight champion having captured the belt when it was relinquished by Cathal Pendred who signed to be part of The Ultimate Fighter. Now, Dalby will also give up his belt to fight for the world’s biggest MMA organisation after taking out thirteen opponents in a row to start his career.

Originally from Birmingham, England but now training and fighting out of Montreal’s Tristar gym 23 year old Breese has amassed an impressive 7-0 record to date. Breese will be well known to Irish fans after being scheduled to fight Phil Mulpeter last year but that fight fell through due to injury. Breese, though, did return and got back to winning ways following two injury filled years.

Both men last fought, and won to keep their undefeated streaks in tact, at Cage Warriors 74 in November of last year in what turned out to be their last fights outside of the UFC.
