The UFC has signed English heavyweight Neil Wain (4-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) to a four-fight deal, and the UFC newcomer is expected to make his octagon debut March 8 at UFC 83, which is tentatively scheduled for London, England.

Wain’s manager recently confirmed the news in a Cage Warriors messageboard announcement.

Wain made his professional debut in November 2006 and has posted four consecutive victories fighting for the U.K.-based Ultimate Force and Goshin Ryu MMA Championships organizations. All four of Wain’s victories have come via knockout — all in the first round. However, Wain’s opponents have a combined record of just 3-12, according to one major fighter database.

Four fights, four knockouts, all first round. Not too bad at all. Hopefully he well do good in the UFC. But I will say that his win streak has a good chance of ending pretty quick in the UFC because his opponents had a combined record of 3-12.

Who knows man, he's fighting Cain Velasquez....another guy whose 2-0 record doesn't exactly add up to $hit! Cain used to fight for Bodog...just look on the main page and do the math...couple of posts down.

I don't see where they are fighting each other, but I guess that could be what they have planned.

A) how do you know they are fighting each other? source?
B) How the hell does Cains record not add up to s*** when he has fought quality opponents with winning records in big promotions?!????????

Oh wait is that you doing the math thinking cos there are 2 HW's rumored they will be fighting each other? Well not neccesarily as its almost certain that Cro Cop will be fighting on this card, and given how badly he needs a win id say its more likely he will get this Wain fella to KTFO

Could be a great addition to a shallow division. He seems to be a bad ass.
