Oban Elliott vs. Preston Parsons Booked for UFC 304

UFC
May 22, 2024
A matchup of welterweight prospects has been added to the UFC 304 card.

Oban Elliott (10-2) will trade leather against Preston Parsons (11-4) at UFC 304 on July 27 at the Co-op Live in Manchester, England. The matchup was first reported by MMA Orbit and later confirmed by Elliott on social media. The card will be headlined by Leon Edwards putting his welterweight title on the line against Belal Muhammad.

Elliott earned a Dana White’s Contender Series opportunity by racking up a four-fight winning streak in Cage Warriors Fighting Championship. Elliott earned a majority decision win over Kaik Brito on the Contender Series in August 2023 to secure an Ultimate Fighting Championship contract. “The Welsh Gangster” made his promotional debut against Valentine Woodburn at UFC 298 this past February, where he survived an early knockdown to come from behind and rack up a unanimous decision win.

Meanwhile, Parsons suffered a first-round knockout loss against Daniel Rodriguez in his UFC debut in July 2021. “Pressure” bounced back with a unanimous decision win over Evan Elder, dropped a split decision against Trevin Giles, and rebounded with another unanimous decision win over Matthew Semelsberger in his most recent outing this past January.
