ABERTILLERY mixed martial arts star Jack Shore will face American Nohelin Hernandez on his UFC debut in Copenhagen on September 28.

Shore is set to follow in the footsteps of fellow Gwent fighter Jack Marshman, who has won three of his seven contests in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Undefeated Shore (11-0) retained his Cage Warriors bantamweight title in April and had looked on course to defend it before revealing in May that he had signed with the UFC.

Hernandez, meanwhile, lost on his UFC debut in July to Ecuador’s Marlon Vera.
