UFC Fight Night 107 Hits London Saturday – The UFC is back in London this coming weekend with their Ultimate Fight Night 107 card being headlined by light heavyweight action between Jimmy Manuwa and Corey Anderson.
Manuwa is 16-2 overall but he has been alternating wins and losses since March of 2014, going 2-2 in that span. Manuwa entered the UFC with a perfect record and a hard hitting style and he quickly went 3-0. He ran into Alexander Gustafsson in a step-up fight and got stopped and then he ran into top gun Anthony Johnson and also got stopped. It is safe to say that Manuwa will need to improve to break the ceiling of the UFC’s top 5, but Anderson is not there yet either. Anderson is 4-1 in his last 5 UFC fights and the loss came via split decision in Brazil to Mauricio Rua.
Ireland’s Joseph Duffy is back after almost 9 months away from the octagon to take on Reza Madadi. Duffy is looking to get himself into position for the most coveted prize in the UFC – a fight with Conor McGregor. Duffy, who is 15-2 overall, owns a November of 2010 win over McGregor on a smaller British event when the two were nobodies. Duffy stumbled with a UFC loss to Dustin Poirier,but he fought in July of last year and wiped out Mitch Clarke in less than half a minute by choke submission.
