Despite agreeing to face John Hathaway via Twitter, it appears the UFC has another fighter in mind for Matt Riddle in 2013. According to Fighter's Only, Riddle and Che Mills will meet in February at UFC on Fuel TV 7.
The card was recently confirmed by UFC officials for London's Wembley Arena on February 16. It will mark the first time the UFC has appeared in London in two-plus years.
Riddle (7-3) has spent his entire professional MMA career inside the Octagon. He topped John Maguire earlier this month.
Mills (15-5) rebounded from a one-sided loss to Rory MacDonald to top Duane Ludwig via TKO when Ludwig went down with an injury this past September. He is 2-1 with the UFC overall.
