The UFC wants you to set your sights on Fabricio Werdum and Alexander Volkov.

On Monday, the promotion released its official poster for UFC London, and it features the event’s heavyweight headliners at the center of a red and blue bullseye-esque pattern known as a roundel, a symbol associated with the UK’s Royal Air Force (h/t to the comments section):

This will be Werdum’s first fight in 2018 after a busy 2017 that saw him go 2-1 with wins over Walt Harris and Marcin Tybura, and a unanimous decision loss to longtime rival Alistair Overeem. Werdum (23-7-1) will be competing in England for the first time since June 7, 2008, when he knocked out Brandon Vera at UFC 85.

Volkov (29-6) has now booked back-to-back UFC main events. This past September, he closed out UFC Rotterdam with a third-round TKO win over Stefan Struve to improve his Octagon record to 3-0.

Also featured on the poster are light heavyweights Jimi Manuwa (17-3) and Jan Blachowicz (21-7). They are set to meet in a rematch of their UFC Krakow encounter back in April 2015 that Manuwa won by unanimous decision.

UFC Fight Night 127 takes place on March 17 at the O2 Arena in London, England.
