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.
