A light heavyweight contest has been added to UFC Fight Night 108 in London as local boy Jimi Manuwa will welcome American Corey Anderson to England’s capital.
UFC Fight Night 108 will be held on March 18, 2017, at the The O2 Arena in London, England.
Jim Edwards of FloCombat announced the bout.
Manuwa (16-2 MMA) is currently ranked #5 in the official UFC rankings at light heavyweight and is coming off an impressive win over former interim title challenger Ovince Saint-Preux at UFC 204 last year in Manchester. Manuwa will be looking to find the same success when he welcomes Corey Anderson to the UK shores.
Anderson (9-2) rebounded from a split decision loss to MMA legend Maurício ‘Shogun’ Rua at UFC 198 by earning a TKO win over Sean O’Connell at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Abdurakhimov in December.
With this bout, UFC Fight Night 108 now looks like this:
Francimar Barroso vs. Darren Stewart
Joseph Duffy vs. Reza Madadi
Teemu Packalen vs. Marc Diakiese
