Jack Marshman is moving down to 170 pounds for his next bout in the UFC.

The promotion announced on Tuesday that Marshman will be taking on Elizeu Zaleski at the Fight Night card in London on March 17. Combate first reported the news.

Marshman (22-7) is changing things up after going 2-2 inside the Octagon, losing to Brazilians Antonio Carlos Junior and Thiago Santos in 2017. His UFC wins came against Magnus Cedenblad and Ryan Janes.

Zaleski (18-5), on the other hand, is looking for his fifth straight victory in the UFC. The Brazilian welterweight won “Fight of the Night” bonuses in his 2017 wins over Max Griffin and Lyman Good.

UFC London will take place at the 02 Arena in England, but the promotion has yet to announce which bout will headline the card.
