    Default Jimi Manuwa meets Alexander Gustafsson when UFC returns to London in March

    "Dana White wanted to get Jimi Manuwa a big fight, and now Manuwa's got one.

    Manuwa (14-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC), fresh off a victory 10 days ago in England, will get the biggest test of his career when he meets Alexander Gustafsson (15-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) in the main event of the UFC's return to London in March...."


    Just saw this over at:

    I don't make threads often, so I'm not even sure if I've done this right.

    and i thought Lil nog was going to be a cake walk...Fight for the title - people want a rematch - schedules a fight 5 months down the road with an unranked fighter.

    Whatcha gonna do Brother, when the New World Order destroys you?

    Huge opportunity for Manuwa, but Goose's experience and craftiness will be a bit much... Should take the decision in a good fight.

    Manuwa has looked good. IMO this will be more competitive than everybody think.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Manuwa doesn't have the gas tank or technique to make this a real fight. Gotta wonder if this matchup was a result of them not being able to secure Cormier at 205(especially since he just mentioned not wanting to cut outside of the US) and I could DEFINITELY see them protecting Goose from Phil Davis, so not to fuckup the Bones/Goose rematch, since I really don't think Davis could draw for much against Jones.
