Jimmo vs Te Huna, Edwards vs. Nelson added to UFC on Fuel 7

Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE

The UFC on Fuel 7 card in London on February 16th is starting to round out, as two more bouts have been added to the card. The first one is in the light heavyweight division. ESPN UK has the news:

The London fight card for February 16 is filling up fast with news that Ryan Jimmo will take on James Te Huna at Wembley Arena.

The second fight is in the welterweight division, and the news comes via YourMMA.tv:

Gunnar Nelson was always expected to feature on the UFC On Fuel 7 card in London, England since the event was announced.

The Icelandic grappling sensation has had his opponent confirmed this afternoon, and it looks like he'll be squaring off against America's Justin Edwards.

Jimmo (17-1) is coming of a big UFC debut where he knocked out Anthony Perosh in just seven seconds at UFC 149 in July. Te Huna (15-5) has won three in a row and is coming off a unanimous decision win over Joey Beltran at UFC on Fuel 4 in July.

Nelson (10-0-1) made his UFC debut a successful one with a first-round submission win over DaMarques Johnson at UFC on Fuel 5 in September, despite Johnson not coming anywhere near making weight. Edwards (8-2) submitted Josh Neer in just 45 seconds at UFC on FX 5 and picked up a submission of the night bonus. That win moved him to 2-2 in the UFC.

It's unclear where on the card both fights will take place. The main event of UFC on Fuel 7 sees Renan Barao defend his UFC interim bantamweight title against Michael McDonald.
