UFC on FUEL 7 bout order set with six-fight main card

The fight lineup for UFC on FUEL 7 in London, England is set, with six fights apiece for the main card and preliminary card.

Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE

February 16th marks an early return to England for the UFC. It's not only a good card, but the main event is the interim bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and Michael McDonald. Barao is the interim champ following a win over Urijah Faber, while McDonald is one of the best young talents in the sport and has the chance to become the youngest champion in UFC history (a record currently held by Jon Jones).

The co-main is a brilliant featherweight showdown between Cub Swanson and Dennis Siver, with the winner closer to a title shot. My personal favorite fight is Jimi Manuwa against Cyrille Diabate, in a battle of hard-hitting, accurate strikers.

On the preliminary card is Terry Etim against Renee Forte. Etim hasn't fought since Edson Barboza froze his entire body with a spinning wheel kick KO.

Here's the full fight lineup from FUEL TV all the way down to the opening fight on Facebook.
