As confirmed by the official UFC website, a 155-pound bout between Mason Jones and Ludovit Klein has been added to the fight card this weekend.

The site noted: “Due to visa issues, Ignacio Bahamondes has been removed from his lightweight bout against Ľudovít Klein scheduled for UFC 277: Peña vs Nunes 2. As a result, Ľudovít Klein will now face Mason Jones at UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs Aspinall on Saturday, July 23 in London, England.”

Jones is a Welsh fighter with an impressive record of 11-1-0 (1 N.C), and this will be his fourth venture into the octagon after competing on three occasions back in 2021. Hopefully, he will be able to pick up another win on (nearly) home soil.
