Gustafsson to now meet Manuwa at UFC in London in March


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.

UFC officials on Tuesday announced the new light heavyweight fight booking. Manuwa steps in for Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (21-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC), who originally was announced as Gustafsson's opponent before having to withdraw with an injury.

The Gustafsson-Manuwa fight will take place March 8 at the UFC's first European Tour event, which takes place at London's O2 Arena. The main card will air on FOX Sports 2.

IMO both Jones and Gustaffson are fighting 2 of the toughest and most dangerous fighters in the division. Both are undefeated and neither of these fights is a gimme for Jones or Gustaffson. Gustaffson is a fighter that although I think is good, he hasn't really impressed me all that much apart from the Jones fight. Jimi will be a tough fight for him win or lose.

You can knock anyone's block off on any given night, including Gus. Good luck! This is a great opportunity
