Jimi Manuwa once again headlines UFC’s show at Greenwich’s 02 Arena

By Richard Cawley


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.
