UFC Adds Jimi Manuwa vs. Jan Blachowicz to the London Fight Card
UFC Fight Night 127 in London’s O2 Arena has added another fight to its card. On March 17th, we will watch Jimi “Posterboy” Manuwa face off against Poland’s Jan “The Prince of Cieszyn” Blachowicz for the second time. This is going to be UFC’s return to the UK after a long 2-year pause. Back then, we watched Michael Bisping’s incredible win over Anderson Silva.
Jimi fought Jan for the first time three years ago. At that time, Jimi was more efficient and won via unanimous decision after three hard-fought rounds. However, this time Jimi promises to end Jan by knockout.
He had this to say in a recent interview, “He’s the only fighter I’ve gone to a decision with in my career, and I aim to rectify that on March 17th. I will knock him out. I respect him as he is willing to fight anyone and he’s definitely improved since we last met. But I’ve got significantly better, and we will see this in the Octagon. I’ll be patient and strike when he makes mistakes.”
Jimi is returning after a devastating KO loss against Volkan Oezedmir, and Jan won his last fight against Jared Cannonier. So, we will see how much of an impact that brutal KO from Volkan had on Jimi’s confidence. Betting apps still haven’t come out with odds for this fight, but in their first bout, Jan was the underdog.
This rematch can potentially be a fun fight. But this is not what MMA fans were hoping for UFC’s big return to London. We know that the former middleweight champion Michael Bisping was hinting at his retirement fight in the UK. However, UFC is yet to announce a main event for the London card, and we bet you that it will include Bisping.
