If Jimi Manuwa wants to keep his place in line at 205 pounds, he will have to do so at the expense of a hard-charging “Ultimate Fighter” winner.

Manuwa will meet Corey Anderson in the UFC Fight Night 107 main event on Saturday at the O2 Arena in London, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship touches down in England for the first time in 2017. The three-round welterweight co-headliner sees Icelandic grappling ace Gunnar Nelson collide with Alan Jouban. The four-fight main draw also features a bantamweight battle slotting Brad Pickett opposite Marlon Vera and a featherweight affair pairing Makwan Amirkhani with Arnold Allen.
