The UFC has a lot of exciting events coming up over the next few months. One of the more exciting events is the UFC’s first trip to London in 2014 at UFC Fight Night 37. In the main event of the evening, former #1 contender, Alexander Gustafsson, takes on the undefeated English prospect, Jimi Manuwa. The winner of that bout will likely get the next crack at the winner of the UFC 172 Light Heavyweight title bout between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira.
Yesterday, the UFC released the official UFC Fight Night 37 poster, which you can see below:
The poster only features the main event of the evening, but there are plenty of other exciting matchups on the card. In the co-main event of the evening, former Blackzilian training partners Michael Johnson and Melvin Guillard, will battle inside the Octagon. This bout was originally set to be a rematch between Melvin Guillard and Ross Pearson, but Pearson was forced to withdraw due to an injury. Luckily, the UFC was able to get Johnson to step in on short notice and the fans will be treated to a great fight.
