A lightweight bout has been added to the UFC's upcoming return to England on Nov 14 as "Ultimate Fighter" season 9 runner-up, Andre Winner, returns to action for the first time since the show's finale to take on "Ultimate Fighter" season 8 fighter, Roli Delgado.
The news was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Thursday by sources close to the fight.
Winner steps back into the Octagon after dropping a unanimous decision to fellow British fighter, Ross Pearson, in the lightweight finals for the show.
