UFC 207 does over 1 million buys
(mmafighting.com)
Despite the show being on a Friday night, instead of the more familiar Saturday and the lack of promotion of the show by Rousey, the early estimates are that the show did 1.1 million buys on pay-per-view. The number would be similar to both the Rousey vs. Holly Holm fight, which was her biggest show to date, and also in the same range as the far more heavily promoted Nov. 12 show from Madison Square Garden headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Eddie Alvarez, which was the most loaded lineup in company history.

Jimi Manuwa vs. Corey Anderson on tap for UFC London
(bloodyelbow.com)
Hard-hitting light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa will be taking on Corey Anderson in the UFC’s March 18th return to London, England. A UFC light heavyweight matchup between two top-10 ranked fighters is set for Saturday, March 18th, as FloCombat reports that Jimi Manuwa (ranked #5) will face Corey Anderson (ranked #9) at UFC Fight Night 108 in London, England. The whole card will stream live on UFC Fight Pass. UFC officials have not formally announced the bout, as of this writing. Manuwa (16-2) fought just once in 2016, having been inactive for more than a year due to injury. He turned in perhaps the best performance of his career, brutally stopping Ovince Saint Preux in the 2nd round of their UFC 204 clash in Manchester, England. Prior to KOing OSP, Manuwa himself was KO’d by top contender Anthony Johnson. Manuwa is known for his vicious power, and has won by KO or TKO in 14 of his 16 wins.

Former UFC Lightweight Champ Rafael dos Anjos Announces Move to Welterweight
(sherdog.com)
His unanimous decision win over Anthony Pettis won him the title and he defended by spectacularly knocking out Donald Cerrone in 66 seconds in his first defense and it seemed at that juncture that the Brazilian might wind up being an all-time great. But a first-round stoppage loss to Eddie Alvarez lost him his throne and when Tony Ferguson defeated him via judges’ decision last November, his run as a top lightweight reached a resounding end.

(mmafighting.com)
Mark Hunt was trying to fight the UFC for further protections in his contract. But he felt like he had no choice but accept a fight without those protections. Hunt will face Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 on March 4 in Las Vegas, it was announced last month. Originally, Hunt said he would only take the fight if the UFC wrote new provisions in his contract about an opponent caught doping. But “The Super Samoan” told “Stuff” in his native New Zealand that he had to take the bout without them for financial reasons.
