The UFC have confirmed that Gunnar Nelson's fight against Dong Hyun Kim will be the main event in Belfast on November 19th.

UFC Fight Night 99 will come to the city and Nelson will provide some of the local interest as the Icelandic welterweight has been part of John Kavanagh's SBG Gym alongside Conor McGregor.

Nelson has lost two of his last four fights.
