The first fight for UFC Fight Night: Copenhagen was announced earlier today with an intriguing welterweight clash between Gunnar Nelson and Thiago Alves confirmed for the Danish event on Saturday 28th September.

With both fighters coming off defeats in their previous outings, a main card showdown in Copenhagen will be the perfect platform to bounce back from their respective losses.
Gunnar Nelson (17-4-1) last featured on the Till v Masvidal card in London earlier this year which saw him lose out on a split decision against Leon Edwards.

Like Nelson, Thiago Alves will be coming into this one on the back of a decision defeat when he was on the wrong end of a unanimous decision defeat to Laureano Staropoli at UFC 237 in Rio de Janeiro last month.

Stay tuned for more UFC Fight Night Copenhagen updates as and when they are announced.
