UFC Fight Night 37 takes place on Saturday from London with a light heavyweight match up between Alexander Gustafsson and Jimi Manuwa set as the main feature. The UFC Fight Night Prelims will start at 12.30 p.m. ET, and the Main Card will start at 3 p.m. ET. The action can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Today's fights feature a number of exciting bouts, which will culminate with the match up between Gustafsson and Manuwa.
The Swede is one of the best in the business, and he is remembered for pushing champion Jon Jones all the way. If he can claim a win tonight then some are already touting that he might be able to get another shot at the title.
But things will be far from easy tonight. Home town favorite Jimi Manuwa is looking for his 15th straight win and is at present undefeated. He will not want to give up that record and will be fighting all out to take down someone with as big a name as Gustafsson, hoping that instead it can lead to his own title shot.
Manuwa is a power man, and he has won 93 percent of his matches through knock out. That means the Swede will have to watch out in the stand up exchanges and will have to be weary about taking any clear hits. If that does happen there's every chance he could end up on his back.
Gustafsson instead will be hoping to take Manuwa to the floor, where he has the clear advantage. If he can get things onto the ground then he has the necessary weaponry to claim a necessary submission. That means Manuwa will need to stay away and try to not get entangled in a scrap on the mat.
