Manuwa-Anderson, Duffy-Madadi, 2 Other Bouts Announced for UFC Fight Night London

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 19, 2017

The lineup for UFC Fight Night 107 in London is filling up quickly.

The Las Vegas-based promotion announced four new bouts for the March 18 card on Thursday: Jimi Manuwa vs. Corey Anderson at light heavyweight; Joseph Duffy vs. Reza Madadi at lightweight; Lina Lansberg vs. Veronica Macedo at bantamweight and Daniel Omielanczuk vs. Timothy Johnson at heavyweight.

UFC Fight Night 107 take place at the O2 Arena in London and will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass. A headliner for the card has not yet been revealed.

Manuwa improved his Octagon mark to 5-2 with a second-round knockout of Ovince St. Preux in his most recent outing at UFC 204. Anderson, meanwhile, has won four of his last five bouts, including a second-round stoppage of Sean O’Connell at UFC Fight Night 102.

Duffy entered the UFC best known for his victory over Conor McGregor under the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship banner, but “Irish Joe” has made a name for himself in the promotion by winning three of his first four appearances. In his lone bout of 2016, Madadi earned a third-round technical knockout victory against Yan Cabral at UFC Fight Night 87.

Lansberg endured a rough promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 95, where she was stopped by Cristiane Justino 2:29 into the second round of their 140-pound catch-weight encounter. Macedo also fell in her first Octagon foray, losing to Ashlee Evans-Smith via third-round TKO at UFC Fight Night 93.

Omielanczuk had a three-fight winning streak snapped at UFC 204, as he was submitted by Stefan Struve in the second round. Johnson is 2-2 during his promotional tenure, including a split-decision defeat to Alexander Volkov in his most recent appearance at UFC Fight Night 99.
