Oli Thompson signs with the UFC....

...., set to debut against Phil De Fries on November 5th in Birmingham

I've just got off the phone and Oli Thompson has confirmed he has signed a contract with the UFC!

From MMABay....

MMABay can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that Wolfslair MMA Academy heavyweight, Oli Thompson has been snapped up by the UFC and will be making his octagon debut at UFC 138 on November 5th in Birmingham, England against undefeated prospect, Phil De Fries.

News of the fight was passed along to earlier today by a source close to one of the two men. Thompson signed with the UFC earlier today and inked his bout agreement at the same time.
Thompson has blazed a trail on the UK scene since making the move to MMA back in April 2009, amassing an impressive 9-2 record thus far. He is currently on a five-fight winning streak and recently submitted Mark Potter via rear-naked choke in the very first round at UCMMA 21.
MMABay broke news of Thompson signing with the Wolfslair MMA Academy only earlier today, a smart move as they have been instrumental in making major things happen for their fighters over the past couple of years.

De Fries is currently 7-0-1 in his MMA career and has become known as somewhat of a finisher over the past couple of years, submitting all of his opponents, six in the first round. Stay tuned to MMABay for more news on this one as we get it.
