The Wembley Arena card on February 16 may well be complete after Tom Kong Watson v Stanislav Nedkov was announced on Saturday.

Watson v Nedkov becomes fight number 12 on the London card, which is headlined by Renan Barao's interim bantamweight title defence against Michael McDonald.

British middleweight Watson was beaten on UFC debut by Brad Tavares, but his all-action go-forward style has earned a loyal army of fans.

Nedkov is undefeated in his MMA career after his recent loss to Thiago Silva was called a no-contest following a failed drug test for the Brazilian. Victory for Watson would represent a huge scalp on home soil.

London line-up:
Renan Barao v Michael McDonald
Dennis Siver v Cub Swanson
Jimi Manuwa v Cyrille Diabate
Che Mills v Matthew Riddle
James Te-Huna v Ryan Jimmo
Gunnar Nelson v Justin Edwards
Terry Etim v Renee Forte
Paul Sass v Danny Castillo
Tom Watson v Stanislav Nedkov
Andy Ogle v Josh Grispi
Vaughan Lee v Motonobu Tezuka
Phil Harris v Ulysses Gomez
