No. 5 light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa meets No. 7 Corey Anderson in the main event of UFC Fight Night 107, a Fight Pass event streaming live from London, England. While it’s a solid scrap, there are few fight fans that would actually think it’s worthy of headliner status.
In fact, the general train of thought is that this is a mediocre card overall. But let’s not get carried away now - there are some very good fights on this card. Let’s take a look at some of the notable clashes on this card, and remember to check in during Fight Week for detailed previews and betting analyses.
Light Heavyweight - Jimi Manuwa (-147) vs. Corey Anderson (+127)
Manuwa is one of the more exciting fighters in a rapidly thinning heavyweight division - a knockout artist that’s second only to Anthony Johnson. With 14 KOs in 16 career victories, the 37-year old Manuwa is a true headhunter that’s crushed his way into the top five. He’ll have to stay upright against Corey Anderson, a wrestler who will look to get this fight to the mat as soon as possible.
Alan Jouban is big, athletic welterweight that seems immune to boring fights. He has the remarkable ability to force his opponents into slugfests. But “Brahma” wil be facing a supremely disciplined fighter in Gunnar Nelson - an Icelander with 11 submissions in 15 wins - setting up a compelling clash of styles.
Brad Pickett is likely lacing up the gloves for the last time, and he gets to do so in his hometown of London. “One-Punch” has long been a guy that goes out on his shield, and he’ll get a huge ovation win or lose. Briones, a hard hitter himself, will be happy to oblige him in a firefight.

Lightweight - Joe Duffy (-614) vs. Reza Madadi (+462)
Joe Duffy is a former pro boxer with legit submission skills. He was one of the hottest prospects in the lightweight division until a disappointing loss to Dustin Poirier. A nice bounce back fight against Reza Madadi is exactly what he needs to get back on track.
The light heavyweight division is in dire need of fresh new prospects. Darren Stewart, step right up. The Englishman is 7-0 with 5 KOs, and gets to finish his business with Francimar Barroso after their first fight was ruled a No Contest after an accidental clash of heads.
