Alexander Gustafsson Receives New Opponent For UFC Fight Night In March

Alexander Gustafsson’s road to another UFC light heavyweight title will need to go through Jimi Manuwa, officials announced on Tuesday.

The two will be the main event for the March 8 card dubbed UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa. It will take place from London’s O2 Arena.

Gustafsson (15-2) was originally scheduled to meet Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, but the Brazilian was forced out with a back injury. He lost to Jon Jones for the title earlier this year via decision.

Manuwa (14-0) has won all three of his UFC appearances, including a recent TKO over Ryan Jimmo.

    Might as well have DC fight Phil Davis.

    Question would be, if Alex and DC both win their respective bouts, who gets the next shot at Jones?

    Cross that bridge if/when it happens…

    I’m actually all for DC fighting Phil Davis, I think that’s a good test for if he’s ready for LHW, either him or Rashad after Suga fights Chael
