A light heavyweight matchup between Ryan Jimmo and Jimi Manuwa is headed to Manchester, England for UFC Fight Night 30. The bout’s positioning on the October 26 card is currently unknown. MMAFighting first reported the bout.
The bout will serve as Manuwa’s third in the UFC. The former UCMMA light heavyweight champion has won both of his fights in the UFC, last defeating Cyrille Diabaté at UFC on FUEL TV 7.
Canadian fighter Ryan Jimmo heads into the bout after a very ugly victory over Igor Pokrajac at UFC 161. This bout will be an important one for Jimmo after angering UFC president Dana White with his frustratingly safe performance.
UFC Fight Night 30 is scheduled for October 26 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. The fight card will be headlined by a middleweight showdown between top challengers Michael Bisping and Mark Muñoz. While most of the UFC Fight Night cards will normally air on FOX Sports 1, this card will air on FOX Sports 2 (what is now FUEL TV).
