For the first UFC Fight Pass streamed card of 2017, we return to the O2 Arena in London, England for UFC Fight 107. It may not catch the eye of most casual viewers or have the highest notable fighters in the world, but the card is definitely something to brighten a dedicated viewer’s Saturday afternoon. In the main event, light heavyweights Jimi Manuwa and Corey Anderson will meet in a 25-minute battle to solidify themselves at the top of their division.

Following a year layoff to recovery from injury and a second-career loss, Manuwa (16-2) returned in devastating fashion by knocking out cold Ovince St. Preux at UFC 204 to produce one of the best UFC knockouts of 2016. With 14 of 16 victories coming by way of knockout, Manuwa is looking to make it a short and quick night in front of his hometown.

Anderson (9-2) began his career run with the UFC by competing on and winning The Ultimate Fighter 19 light heavyweight tournament. He now sits in the UFC with six victories, lastly defeating scrapper Sean O’Connell back in December of last year. Anderson is hoping to impress in his rival’s homeland by picking up his first victory within the main event spotlight.
