Originally scheduled to face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC Fight Night in London, Alexander Gustafsson will now meet undefeated Brit Jimi Manuwa on the March 8 card.

So is everyone who complained about Gustafsson/Nogueira happy now?

I've read rumours of it before, just laughable. Jones called out UFC for setting Gus up with an easy opponent in Lil Nog, I'm sure he'll have an even bigger case now.

Odd matchmaking, I don't really get it.

Again, I'm not going to get worked up about a fight so far away, I'll wait to see whose healthy by the time the event is around.

Manuwa is gonna try to flail away at someone he can't hit with a solid punch.

Manuwa is gonna use his voodoo magic and win the fight by some weird injury to Gus.

That's the type of match-up you make when the fight is two weeks away and you're scrambling to put a fight together, not 4 months out.

It seems like Werdum has barely fought, recently. Hope he makes it a fight.

I could have swore Dana said he was going to get manuwa a big fight in vegas....not a slaughter in England.

Stupid fight if true, bad for both guys at this stage in their career.

Well that card just got a lot worse. Hopefully TJ Grant gets the shot once Pettis is healed, instead of Thomson.

I want to see that Thomson fight. It'd be a good one if it got out of the first.

How far along is TJ Grant? If Pettis is going be out for a while maybe Grant/Thomson could fight or if he isn't ready Melendez/Thomson?

It's to the point where I couldn't buy tickets to a UFC event until the week of an event. There's no point. Often the card crashes and you can find cheap prices, so why risk it?

Dana says Pettis needs surgery and might be out 8 months.

He also said the Jones/Glover fight is no longer happening at UFC 170. Jones pulled out again. Might happen in March now.

UFC needs to stop announcing **** before they have it confirmed. Next thing you know, both Glover and the British dude get injured and we get a rematch.

Jones would surely get a lot of heat, but if he wants a lengthy layoff I wouldn't mind seeing Glover fight Gus. I know people will say that eliminates a contender, but they still have Cormier, and whoever lost that fight could easily get a title shot with one big win.

All the champs either already have fights set or are injured. My guess is that over the next couple weeks we'll see a lot of fights booked as things shake out after the next couple events.
