Jimi Manuwa will once again feature on the UFC’s show at Greenwich’s 02 Arena.
The Croydon light-heavyweight faces a rematch against Poland’s Jan Blachowicz on March 17. The pair first met in Krakow, Poland back in April 2015, the home fighter dropping a unanimous decision to Manuwa, 37.
The South Londoner knocked out Corey Anderson when he last fought in London.
But Manuwa’s record fell to 17-3 after he was KO’d by Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 214 in California in July. All three of his losses have been by stoppage.
The only time the big-hitting “Poster Boy” has been the distance was against Blachowicz.
Manuwa – set to fight in the capital for the 12th time in his career – said: “The London fans can expect another knockout. Blachowicz is in trouble.”
Tickets for the event went on sale last Friday via GMT and Ticketmaster.
