UFC FN 30: Norman Parke Fighting Jon Tuck
By FCF Staff
The October 26th, UFC Fight Night 30 card in Manchester is nearing completion, as the promotion has announced that Norman Parke will battle lightweight Jon Tuck at the event.
Parke (18-2) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Kazuki Tokudome at UFC 162 in July, after handing Colin Fletcher a UD defeat last December to win “TUF Smashes.” The Northern Ireland fighter is 9-1 in his last 10 bouts.
Tuck (7-0) made his Octagon debut at UFC on FUEL TV 6 last November and worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Tiequan Zhang. “Super Saiyan”, who hails from Guam, has won six of his seven fights by either stoppage or submission.
UFC FN 30 will be hosted by the Manchester Arena and will feature Michael Bisping taking on fellow middleweight contender Mark Munoz in the main event. In the co-headliner, lightweight Ross Pearson will battle Melvin Guillard.
The card will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 throughout the U.S.
