Darren Stewart will return to the octagon on 30 November against Edmen Shahbazyan in Las Vegas.

The London fighter is on a knockout hotstreak after a dismal start to his UFC career.

A second-round knockout of Eric Spicely in May ended a 22-month wait for a win for Stewart, and the Brit was noticeably emotional in the cage after the victory.

Stewart followed the win up with another quick stoppage against Charles Byrd in Dallas in September, and is now scheduled to take on Shahbazyan.

After earning a UFC contract with a spectacular knockout of Antonio Jones on Dana Whites Tuesday Night Contender Series, Shahbazyan will be making his first official appearance in the octagon.

The 20-year-old prospect will take on 27-year-old Stewart in what could be a cracking stand-up contest.

Shahbazyan is undefeated in seven pro fights and has yet to make it into the second round of a bout, with seven consecutive first-round knockouts.
