Jimi Manuwa will get the biggest opportunity of his career, as he has signed on to face Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Fight Night this March.
Officials tabbed the unbeaten Manuwa to meet Gustafsson at the March 8 card from London’s O2 Arena. It will serve as the main event.
Manuwa (14-0) has won his three UFC fights, including a TKO victory over Ryan Jimmo last month. Gustafsson (15-2), of course, is primed to earn another title match with a win after falling to Jon Jones via decision earlier this year.
