Ilja Dragunov vs. Nathan Frazer title match set for next week's NXT UK

Dragunov accepted Frazer's challenge on this week's episode of NXT UK.

WWE has confirmed the next challenger to Ilja Dragunov's NXT United Kingdom Championship.

Dragunov will defend his title against Nathan Frazer on next Thursday's episode of NXT UK. The match was made official on this week's NXT UK after Dragunov accepted a challenge that had been issued to him by Frazer last Thursday.

Frazer is coming off a win two weeks ago against Teoman of Die Familie. Prior to that, Frazer lost to WALTER in the main event of the January 13 edition of NXT UK.

This will be Dragunov's fourth title defense since defeating WALTER for the NXT UK Championship at TakeOver 36 last August. He's successfully defended the title against A-Kid, Rampage Brown, and Jordan Devlin thus far.

Here's the full list of what's been announced for next Thursday's NXT UK:

  • NXT United Kingdom Champion Ilja Dragunov defends against Nathan Frazer
  • Mark Coffey vs. Sha Samuels (Gallus and Noam Dar banned from ringside)
  • Pretty Deadly (Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley) vs. Dave Mastiff & Jack Starz

On the NXT UK episode that airs in two weeks, Dar will defend his Heritage Cup Championship against Joe Coffey.
