Jimi Manuwa collides against Corey Anderson in the main event.

The UFC light heavyweights will square off this Saturday, March 18, at the 02 Arena in London, England.

Manuwa has only fought three times in the last two years, going 2-1. Most recently knocking out the very tough and durably Ovince St. Preux at UFC 204. Handing St. Preux his first knockout loss inside the octagon.

Meanwhile, Anderson has gone 4-1 in his last five outings. Only dropping a closing contested bout against former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua at UFC 198. Now, Anderson looks to build off the momentum from his 2nd round destruction of Sean O’Connell at UFC Fight Night 102.

Welterweights, Alan Jouban and Gunnar Nelson meet in the co-main event.

Jouban has been on a tare, rattling off three consecutive victories over Brendan O’Reilly, Belal Muhammad and most recently giving Mike Perry his first career loss at UFC on Fox 22.

Nelson last fought back in May at UFC Fight Night 87, picking up an impressive 2nd round submission over the dangerous Albert Tumenov. Prior, Nelson lost a unanimous decision over fellow grappling ace Demian Maia at UFC 194.

Brad Pickett’s finale fight.

Pickett steps foot inside the octagon for the last time Saturday. Retiring after over a decade of blood, sweat and tears. He will be trying to snap a two-fight skid, to cap off his amazing career with a victory in his home country of England.
