A bantamweight bout between Ian Entwistle and Rob Font has been added to UFC’s return to Manchester, England at UFC 204.
UFC 204: Bisping vs. Henderson 2 will be held on October 8, 2016, at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
Entwistle (9-3 MMA) lost his UFC debut to Dan Hooker at UFC Fight Night: Te-Huna vs. Marquardt via TKO. Following the loss, ‘Enty’ moved to bantamweight to earn a ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus in a heel-hook win over Anthony Birchak at UFC on Fox: dos Santos vs. Miocic. In his most recent bout however, whilst attempting numerous heel-hooks, Entwistle ended up on the wrong end of a TKO loss to Alejandro Pérez at UFC Fight Night: Rothwell vs. dos Santos.
Font (12-2 MMA) had a near perfect UFC debut, earning a first-round TKO win in a ‘Performance of the Night’ effort against George Roop at UFC 175. Font followed that up with another TKO win against late notice replacement Joey Gomez at UFC Fight Night: Dillashaw vs. Cruz. However, in his last bout, Font dropped a unanimous decision to top bantamweight contender John Lineker at UFC 198.
