Four bouts have been signed for the upcoming Octagon debut in Scotland, including lightweights Joseph Duffy and Ivan Jorge.

Set for July 18 from The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, UFC Fight Night 72 will mark the debut for the promotion in Scotland after hosting 15 cards in the United Kingdom.

Lightweights Joseph Duffy and Ivan Jorge, welterweights Leon Edwards and Pawel Pawlak, featherweights Robert Whiteford and Paul Redmond, and light heavyweights Ilir Latifi and Hans Stringer are all set.

Duffy (13-1) has won three straight since a submission loss in 2011, including a first round TKO over Jake Lindsey in March. Jorge (26-4) sports a 2-1 UFC record, with both wins coming via decision.

Edwards (9-2) earned an eight-second knockout of Seth Baczynski in his most recent fight, while Pawlak (11-1) suffered his first career loss in the UFC. Whiteford (11-2) is 1-1 over two Octagon appearances and Redmond (10-5) was topped by Mirsad Bektic recently.

Latifi (9-4) had his two-fight win streak snapped by Jan Blachowicz in October, as he fell to 2-2 with the promotion. Stringer (22-6) suffered his first loss in four years when he was finished by Fabio Maldonado this past October.

No main event has been announced for the card.

Below is the current lineup:

Lightweight: Joseph Duffy vs. Ivan Jorge

Welterweight: Leon Edwards vs. Pawel Pawlak

Featherweight: Robert Whiteford vs. Paul Redmond
