A lightweight fight between Shannon Gugerty (11-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and British product Jeff Lawson (12-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has been added to UFC 95 in London.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the Feb. 21 bout with Gugerty.

"It's going to be a great fight," Gugerty said. "I'm definitely looking to showcase a lot of stuff that I haven't really shown yet in the UFC. I'm excited."

Combined these guys have 19 submission wins. Lawson 11 subs, 10 fight win streak.

Shannon 8 wins by submission.

I think I see Lawson taking this one by armbar end of round 1.

It's kind of funny because a lot of people (even people within his camp) believed that Jeff or (geoff) was pegged for the upcoming TUF. At least that's what the rumblings were back in lkate October. He probably would have won it to. He's 11-2 but one fight was stopped due to a cut, and one fight was stopped via a thumb in his eye but was incorrectly called a Verbal tapout.

Really good addition to the current stable of UK fighters. You can watch almost all of his fights on youtube. He has a solid Judo background, good striking, and goes for all sorts of wild stuff like flying leg scissors etc.
