MMA


Jimi Manuwa is set to face Jan Blachowicz in a light-heavyweight rematch on the UFC Fight Night London card on March 17.

Manuwa (17-3), who beat Poland’s Blachowicz in Krakow via unanimous decision back in April 2015, lost to Volkan Oezdemir in his last outing on UFC 214 and will be keen to get back to winning ways in front of a home crowd.

A victory for the London fighter will elevate him back into contention in the 205lb division which is currently lead by champion Daniel Cormier.

Blachowicz (21-7) will be bidding to make it three wins in a row with a victory over Manuwa following on from recent wins over Devin Clark and Jaren Cannonier.

Fellow Englishmen Leon Edwards and Mark Godbeer have already been announced to be fighting on the same card along with light-heavyweight Scottish contender Paul Craig.

Tickets to UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON go on general sale on Friday, February 2 at 10 a.m. GMT via AXS and Ticketmaster.
