Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith are getting another shot at the NXT UK Tag Team titles -- this time in a two-out-of-three falls match.

NXT UK Tag Team Champions Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) will defend their titles against Carter & Smith in a two-out-of-three falls match in the main event of the NXT UK episode that airs in two weeks (Thursday, April 21). The match was announced during a segment where the two teams met with NXT UK management on this week's episode of the show.

This February, Moustache Mountain retained their titles against Carter & Smith when Seven knocked Smith's foot off the ropes before the referee could see it and call for a rope break.

After Carter & Smith challenged Moustache Mountain to another title match, it was set up that they would have to get their shot by facing Bate and Seven in singles matches. Carter defeated Bate, but Seven won his match against Smith by holding onto Smith's tights while pinning him. Bate wasn't happy with how Seven cheated to win.

Moustache Mountain won the NXT UK Tag Team titles from Pretty Deadly in December of last year.

Here's what's been announced for the next two weeks of NXT UK episodes:
