Wrestling leads to easy win
July 15, 2020
Shore defeated Aaron Phillips via submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 2:29 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi.
Entering as a massive -900 favorite, Shore recognized Phillips' weakness and quickly exploited it. He used his grappling to secure three successful takedowns. Shore secured 5:25 worth of control time in a fight that barely lasted seven minutes. It was the dominant showing many expected. The level of competition he was going up against must be taken into consideration here, but Shore passed this test with flying colors. Undefeated as a professional and still just 25 years of age, Shore is one of the bantamweight division's brightest prospects.

New opponent July 15
July 6, 2020
Shore will now take on Aaron Phillips on July 15 on Fight Island, MMAJunkie.com reports.
Shore was originally lined up for a bout against Anderson dos Santos, and was even a (-435) betting favorite for that matchup. He'll instead take on Phillips, a fighter who is 0-2 in the UFC from a brief stint in 2014, but since undefeated on lesser circuits. Given Shore's status as an undefeated prospect, look for him to again enter as the favorite.
Needs new Fight Island opponent
July 3, 2020
Shore will need a new opponent for UFC Fight Night on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi on July 15 after Anderson dos Santos tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
The bout had only just been announced Monday, though whether or not a new opponent can be found for Shore on such short notice remains to be seen. Shore has already had one previously scheduled fight this year scrapped due to the ongoing pandemic, as he lost his chance to face Geraldo de Freitas in March after UFC London was canceled.
Taking on Dos Santos at Fight Island
June 29, 2020
Shore (12-0-0) is scheduled to face Anderson dos Santos (20-8-0) in a bantamweight bout July 15 as part of a UFC Fight Night event on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
Shore will return to the Octagon for the first time since last September after he had a previously scheduled matchup with Geraldo de Freitas cancelled in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 25-year-old will be fighting for the second time under the UFC banner after defeating Nohelin Hernandez via submission in his debut in Copenhagen.
Off UFC London
March 15, 2020
Shore will no longer face Geraldo de Freitas on Saturday following the relocation of UFC London, Jim Edwards of Fighters Only reports.
The UFC will be relocating the weekend's event, per an official statement, which leaves fighters like Shore unable to secure travel plans on short notice, especially given the recently-imposed restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19. It's unclear if this matchup will be rescheduled for a later date.
Paired against Geraldo de Freitas
January 24, 2020
Shore will face Geraldo de Freitas at UFC London on March 21, MMAJunkie.com reports.
The Welshman won his UFC debut with a third-round submission of Nohelin Hernandez in September. He's undefeated in 12 career professional fights. His opponent, de Freitas, has won once and lost once since joining the UFC, most recently falling to Chris Gutierrez by split decision in August.
