Paul Craig is going from fighting a living legend to a potential future title contender.
In his last appearance, Craig fought former UFC champion Mauricio Rua at UFC Sao Paulo in November. The bout was declared a split draw, leaving Scotland’s “Bearjew” with a 2-1-1 record in 2019. He scored submission wins over Vinicius Moreira and Kennedy Nzechukwu earlier this year.
Spann, a Contender Series contract winner, is 3-0 since debuting with the UFC in September 2018. After winning a decision over Luis Henrique, he defeated Antonio Rogerio Nogueira by first-round knockout and followed that with a second-round submission of Devin Clark in October.
UFC London takes place at O2 Arena, with a headliner yet to be announced. The main card will air live on the ESPN+ streaming service.
