A Sweden vs. England clash was officially announced for UFC London, as welterweights Oliver Enkamp and Danny Roberts meet at the O2 Arena on March 17.

Roberts (14-3) will attempt to get back on track after suffering a 59-second knockout defeat to Nordine Taleb in December. “Hot Chocolate” holds a 3-2 record since joining the promotion in 2015, including stoppage wins over Bobby Nash and Nathan Coy.

Enkamp (7-1) also lost to Taleb in his most recent bout, a unanimous decision defeat on less than two weeks’ notice back in May. It was the first blemish in the 26-year-old’s career, as he signed with the UFC holding a perfect 7-0 record with five finishes in the Swedish circuit.

The Fight Night event marks the return of the Octagon to the O2 Arena for the first time since May of 2017, but the company has yet to announce which bout will serve as the headliner.

The current fight card currently includes nine bouts.

Leon Edwards vs. Peter Sobotta
Mark Godbeer vs. Dmitry Poberezhets
Nasrat Haqparast vs. Alex Reyes
Magomed Ankalaev vs. Paul Craig
Charles Byrd vs. John Phillips
Kajan Johnson vs. Rustam Khabilov
Jan Blachowicz vs. Jimi Manuwa
Jack Marshman vs. Elizeu Zaleski
