I didn't see this one coming but I'm glad they found a replacement.
Manuwa poses a threat with his power but I think Gus will finish this fight in the Mid rounds.

I'm actually not all that pissed off with this one and in fact this could be a far more fun and competitive fight than Lil Nog would have offered. Decent replacement.

Could be worse. I think Gus is way too much for Manuwa though.

Big step up for Manuwa. This is gonna be a sick fight! Certainly would skyrocket his career with a win here. Won't be easy though

Too soon for Manuwa he should be fighting a fringe contender...now he's got the chance to steal Gustaffson's hard earned place.

I agree

I just think this fight is a little to soon for Manuwa.

I think gus will destroy manuwa. There isn't really much left in terms of replacements but this seems pretty unbalanced.

Manuwa = Beast. He definitely has a good shot in this one.

I'm gonna put some underdog money on Jimi here. He has a real chance.

If he can win this fight, he will deserve to "steal" that place.

Its a reward for stepping up. And after all, he still has to win the fight to earn it.

Deep end of the pool here for Manuwa. Will see if he sinks or swims. I think Gus lights him up fairly easily.
