UFC Fight Night 107 – UFC London Results: Corey Anderson vs. Jimi Manuwa
UFC Fight Night 107 also known as UFC Fight Night London will be held at The O2 Arena in London, England.
UFC Fight Night 107 was headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Ultimate Fighter winner Corey Anderson (9-2) and England’s own, Jimi Manuwa (16-2). It was a short-lived fight as Anderson pushed the pace early but was backed up and stopped with a one-punch left hook that floored him shortly after the three-minute mark.
The original bantamweight bout between Brad Pickett and Marlon Vera took place as a catchweight bout at 140 lbs. Both athletes agreed to the catchweight bout following Vera’s acceptance to step in for injured Henry Briones on one week’s notice. The fight was the final fight in the historic career of one of England’s most popular fighters, Brad ‘One Punch’ Pickett. Unfortunately for Pickett and the fans, the fight did not go in his favor. Pickett was defeated in the third and final round via TKO.
Tom Breese vs. Oluwale Bamgbose was removed from the fight card this morning after Breese who made weight yesterday was declared unfit to fight (likely a weight cutting issue).
Also, Ian Entwistle vs. Brett Johns removed after Entwistle made a trip to the hospital. Entwistle missed weight yesterday by three pounds.
