Jack Shore announced his arrival to the big stage with a dominant victory over Nohelin Hernandez on the UFC Copenhagen prelims today.
Shore represents perhaps the most promising talent of all of those at forefront of the growing Welsh mixed martial arts scene at the moment, joining UFC stars Brett Johns, Jack Marshman, and John Phillips in leading the country’s charge on a global scale.
Entering the UFC on the back of some considerable hype given his status as the champion of the Cage Warriors bantamweight division, with many calling him one of Europe’s top prospects.
Debuting against Nohelin Hernandez, it did not take long for the Welshman to display his stellar skills on the mat, controlling his opponent’s back on several occasions – stifling his rhythm from start to finish.
Finally, in the third round, the impressive finish came from Shore’s patented rear-naked choke – signalling the highly-touted 135lb-r’s grand arrival in the UFC and in many ways, proving his suitability for the big stage.

With this win, Shore moves to 12-0 as a professional – adding himself to a very credible list of threats making their way up the bantamweight ranks and the ever-growing number of fighters to have found success in the UFC after a stellar run in Cage Warriors.
