A light heavyweight matchup that should provide fireworks is on tap for UFC Fight Night 30.

Jimi Manuwa (13-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Ryan Jimmo (18-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) are the latest additions to the card, which takes place Oct. 26 at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

It's unknown whether the fight, which was first reported by MMAFighting.com, will serve on the Facebook-streamed preliminary-card or the FOX Sports 2-televised main card.

there is absolutely no way this fight should be a facebook fight

I like the chances of Jimmo in this fight but depends on which Jimmo show's up.

Hmmm... Didn't we see Jimmo wrestling with Te Huna and Igor?
Think we'll see Jimmo try and do the same thing here, fake Manuwa into the stand up then mix up some takedowns to dominate the second half the round.

I hope so cause Manuwa needs a Wrestling check pronto.

Good point, and very true...Manuwa's wrestling sucks and he is probably over sized here...I am still hopeful!

Ha I'm British and I wanna see Manuwa in the missionary position for 15 minutes. Think we need a role reversal here.

Ill be hopeful, you be negative

Good match to test Manuwa and his clinching ability and cardio. That being said, I feel Jimmo is proficient enough at getting ahold of Manuwa and sticking him against the cage or even possibly taking him down for 15 minutes to grab the decision.
