Two rising prospects will collide in a featherweight bout in London, the UFC announced Tuesday.

Makwan Amirkhani and Arnold Allen are set to face off at UFC Fight Night 107 at London’s O2 Arena on March 18.

Amirkhani (13-2) returns to the Octagon 13 months after scoring his third UFC victory, a decision over Mike Wilkinson in London. “Mr. Finland”, who stopped his previous opponents in the first round, will compete for the fourth time in Europe under the UFC banner.

Allen (11-1) also hasn't fought since UFC Fight Night 84, when he improved to 2-0 inside the Octagon with a unanimous decision win over Yaotzin Meza. In his promotional debut in Germany, Allen tapped Alan Omer in the third round.

The UFC has yet to announce which fight will headline the event.
