Jimi Manuwa-Jan Blachowicz Rematch Set for UFC Fight Night 127 in London

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 4, 2018

A light heavyweight rematch pitting Jimi Manuwa against Jan Blachowicz has been booked for UFC Fight Night 127.

The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the matchup on Thursday. UFC Fight Night 127 takes place at the O2 Arena in London on March 27. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.

Manuwa and Blachowicz initially squared off at UFC Fight Night 64 in April 2015, with “Poster Boy” winning via unanimous decision. Manuwa has split four bouts since then, earning knockouts of Corey Anderson and Ovince St. Preux while being stopped by Anthony Johnson and Volkan Oezdemir.

Blachowicz, meanwhile, has garnered back-to-back victories over Devin Clark and Jared Cannonier in his last two Octagon appearances. That success was much needed following a two-year stretch in which the 34-year-old Pole lost four of his five bouts within the promotion.
