Jack Marshman
Defeats fellow Welshman
March 16, 2019
Marshman defeated John Phillips via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night in London on Saturday.
While Marshman picked up a win to snap his two-fight losing streak, this fight won't do much for his stock overall. First off, he came in two pounds overweight and was forced to forfeit 20 percent of his purse. Furthermore, Marshman was also dropped by a stiff right hook in the first, but Phillips decided to let him off the hook instead of pursue the finish. That was likely the highest period of action the fight saw. Phillips appeared to have the edge in Octagon control time over the next two periods, but didn't quite land enough to take the decision from Marshman. Despite cashing in as a betting favorite of roughly (-140), he'll be tough to trust against better middleweight competition.

Fails to make weight
March 15, 2019

Adds fight in London
December 19, 2018
Marshman will take on John Phillips at UFC London on March 16.
Marshman was expected to compete in London last year but his fight eventually fell by the wayside due to Bradley Scott's inability to make weight. Looking back at the past 12 months, Marshman has only made one appearance in the ring, losing to Karl Roberson in New York City via unanimous decision last month. He will look to get things back on track versus Phillips, who is coming off a defeat to Kevin Holland just a few weeks ago.
Not competitive in loss to Karl Roberson Saturday
November 3, 2018
Marshman lost to Karl Roberson via unanimous decision (26-30, 26-30, 27-30) at UFC 230 on Saturday in New York City.
There was nothing in Marshman's background that would lead to to believe that he was deserving of the opportunity to perform on the main card of a Pay-Per-View at Madison Square Garden and his effort on Saturday reaffirmed that fact. Marshman is extremely limited from an athletic standpoint and he offers very little offensively. His chin held up in a major way in this one, but he never threatened Roberson in the least. Sporting a 1-3 record in his last four bouts, Marshman is nothing more than roster depth.
Joins UFC 230 card
August 23, 2018
Marshman is booked to take on Karl Roberson in a middleweight bout at UFC 230 in New York on Nov. 3, Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com reports.
It's been a rocky road for Marshman since he joined the UFC back in late 2016, as he's gone 2-2 in his four fights, alternating wins and losses. He most recently lost to Antonio Carlos Jr. via submission at UFC Fight Night 119 back in October, and he'll be looking to bring his record back over .500 nearly a year later.
Fight with Bradley Scott dropped
March 15, 2018
Marshman's fight with Bradley Scott at UFC London on March 17 at the O2 Arena has been scrapped due to concerns that the former would not be able to safely make weight cut, Shaun Al-Shatti of MMAFighting.com reports.
Marshman (22-7) has never competed at 170 pounds -- his inexperience at that weight possibly leading towards his issues making the cut. He does hope, however, to have the fight rescheduled as soon as possible.
