English Heavyweight Oli Thompson is gonna be making his UFC debut at 138 against another Brit in Philip De Fries in what looks to be a straight shootout as to who's stayin on the UFC's books.

He is the British Heavyweight UCMMA Champion and was Britain's Strongest Man in 2006 and a World Strongest Man competitor.

I think he's got a big UFC future but is a very late starter at i think 29 and he only started in 2009....... We'll have to wait and see.
Phil De Fries has a good reputation aswell

This should be a pretty entertaining fight. Thompson is good, but I've got De Fries taking it.

I've never seen De Fries fight yu know. I've seen a few of Thompson's and he always tries the same things really, which he is good at, a straight knockout or a rear naked choke.....
He's got a good chin but needs to improve if he's gonna stay in UFC and make a name for himself.
I hope he wins....

I'd doubt any British MMA fighter who's going to be a star as the domestic scene is quite bad.
