Bantamweight fighter, Brett Johns became the second Welsh fighter to be signed by the UFC, and broke down in tears when he heard the news.

The video, filmed by his manager, shows Johns on the phone via Skype crying tears of joy upon hearing the news that he's finally found a place on the UFC roster.

Johns holds a 12-0 professional record with his most recent win coming at Titan FC 34, where he defeated TUF vet, Anthony Gutierrez via split decision.

Johns will make his UFC debut when he faces fellow undefeated prospect, Kwan Ho Kwak at UFC Fight Night in Belfast on November 19.

Johns' signing marks just the second Welsh fighter to be included in the UFC lineup, joining Jack Marshman, who also fights in Belfast this November.
