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.
