All of Manuwa's UFC fights have ended under weird circumstances. So it's still hard to gauge just how good he is. But this is definitely his big chance to prove how good he is and make a name for himself.

I'd have to go with Gustafsson at this point based on how he's performed against a higher level of competition, but it's definitely an interesting fight.

Yeah man exactly what I was thinking.
Manuwa can win this he has that speciale momentum and confidence and pretty good standup.
Not a smart matchup to make from the ufc.

Wow what a matchup, thats a hell of a match up, surprising choice.

Maybe he'll suffer the jimi jinx and keel over midfight. Phone Post

This is a perfect fight for Jimi. Anyone with half a brain knows he has a chance to take it. But expectations are going to be low because Gustaffson just put on such a good performance with the champ. Plus it is the first real jump in talent that Jimi will have experienced in the UFC. Even if Jimi loses but puts on a good performance his stock will rise considerably.

On the other hand it is terrible for Gustaffson, in fighting Jimi he is taking on someone with little to no name value outside of the hardcore fans and is seen as being on a considerably lower level. Even if he demolishes Jimi (which I can't see happening) he isn't going to gain anything from it. Phone Post 3.0

This is BS. Yes Jimi is 3-0 in UFC and 14-0 overall but that doesn't mean he's ready for TITLE CONTENTION! This is purely a business fight at Jimi's expense but you know what...

Lions.

Eat.

Jimi actually travelled to Alliance from the UK to get some training in with Davis and Gus not long ago when he first got signed by the UFC, that'll be interesting.

In no way what so ever do I think this fight is an easy one for Alex, I´ve seen Manuwa fight and he´s a great fighter with some sick power and underrated ground game.

With that said, I still feel that Alex will handle this challenge in the best way possible and I see him winning this fight in a decisive manner.
