JACK HERMANSSON vs. JARED CANNONIER
TO HEADLINE UFC FIGHT NIGHT® COPENHAGEN
 
Limited tickets available at Ticketmaster.dk

London, UK – Today, UFC® announced the headline bout for UFC FIGHT NIGHT® COPENHAGEN will feature No.4 ranked Jack Hermansson against No.9 ranked Jared Cannonier. The two will come face to face in a five-round middleweight battle as the Octagon touches down in Denmark for the first time on Saturday, September 28 at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen.

Limited tickets for UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: HERMANSSON vs. CANNONIER are available via Ticketmaster.dk with VIP tickets to bring you closer to the action also available.

This middleweight main event brings together two hugely exciting mixed martial artists, with 31-year-old Swede, Jack Hermansson (20-4; fighting out of Oslo, Norway) returning to Scandinavian soil after an impressive wave of four straight victories. ‘The Joker’s’ most recent success came against Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in April after coming in as an underdog and taking the fight on short notice, Hermansson shocked the world to come out with a unanimous decision victory. 

Jared Cannonier (12-4; fighting out of Alaska, USA) will enter the Octagon determined to derail the hype behind Hermansson and stop him in his tracks. Cannonier will be looking to build on his stunning recent victory over former champion Anderson Silva in May of this year and steal the night's limelight once more.
