Jimi Manuwa – Corey Anderson to headline UFC London

On March 18th, the UFC will be live from the O2 Arena in London, England. The event will feature the retirement fight of London’s own, Brad Pickett. While the fight card is still being put together, a main event was just announced.

A light heavyweight showdown between Jimi Manuwa (16-2) and Corey Anderson (10-2), which was already on the card, has been promoted to the main event. Manuwa who, like Pickett, will be fighting out of his own back yard, is coming off of a 2nd-round KO victory over Ovince Saint Preux at UFC 204 in Manchester.

Anderson, who has won 4 of his last 5, could inch closer to a top 5 ranking with a win over Manuwa.

UFC Fight Night takes place on March 18th, from the O2 Arena in London, England. It will air live on UFC Fight Pass.
