A long-promised trip to Nottingham, England will materialize, as the UFC on Monday confirmed that it would visit the city for a Sept. 29 event which will be UFC on FUEL 5.
The show -- the first UK event since last November's UFC 138 -- will emanate from the Capital FM Arena.
The 33-year-old Pickett has split his last four bouts, but most recently defeated Damacio Page in a second-round rear naked choke win at UFC on FUEL 2. He's 21-6 overall.
Jabouin has had a more successful recent stretch, capturing thee fights in a row although two of them came via split decision. Following his unanimous decision victory over Jeff Hougland in May, he's 18-7.
The other announced bout pits a pair of TUF alumni, with TUF Live semifinalist Andy Ogle facing Akira Corassani. It will be the official UFC debuts for both men. Ogle is 8-1 in his pro career while Corassani is 9-3 with 1 no contest.
While those are the only two confirmed fights, the event is a likely landing spot for Nottingham native Dan Hardy, who recently ended a four-fight losing streak in spectacular sytle by knocking out Duane "Bang" Ludwig.
