A welterweight bout is the first to be confirmed for UFC Fight Night 127 as Leon Edwards vs Peter Sobotta has been added to the event in London.

UFC Fight Night 127 will be held on March 17, 2018, at The O2 Arena in London, England.

The UFC announced the bout on Thursday morning on social media.

Edwards is currently riding a four-fight winning streak into his next bout in London. Three unanimous decision wins over Dominic Waters, Vicente Luque and Bryan Barberena and a submission win over Albert Tumenov at UFC 204 has Edwards looking to break into the top 15 of the UFC welterweight rankings.

Sobotta is riding a two-fight winning streak of his own. A unanimous decision win over Nicolas Dalby was followed most recently by a TKO win over Ben Saunders at  UFC Fight Night 109 in Stockholm, Sweden.
