While we are at it, we may as well announce another British fighter to be signed by the UFC, and this one is a stud too, The UFC has officially signed undefeated Light Heavyweight prospect Jimmy Manuwa.
It appears the UFC will be going all out and loading the FUEL TV card up with a pile of British fighters as it appears that Manuwa's first fight will likely be on the UFC on FUEL TV 5 card set for September 2th in Nottingham, England.
Fightersonly.com was also the one to reveal this siging.
Manuwa will bring his 11-0 record into the UFC's octagon with him. Manuwa has also finished all of his 11 fights, never seeing the 3rd round so far. He has also impressively KO/TKO'd 10 of 11 opponents, submitting the other by guillotine choke.
As impressive as he has been, this will be a major upgrade in the quality of opponents for Manuwa by signing with the UFC. Either way the UFC has contracted arguably the very best non Light Heavyweight prospect available with Manuwa.
