UFC Fight Night: Jimi Manuwa vs. Thiago Santos fight card

108 0

The final UFC event of September is in Sao Paulo, Brazil on the 22nd. In the main event, light heavyweight contender Jimi Manuwa welcomes Thiago Santos to the division, as Santos replaces the injured Glover Teixeira. The co-main event is welterweight Alex Oliveira against short notice opponent Carlo Pedersoli Jr, who’s filling in for Neil Magny, as he was moved to the UFC Buenos Aires main event vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio.

This bout order is really bizarre. I’ve no idea why Belal Muhammad vs. Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos is buried on the Fight Pass prelims. Renan Barao getting on the main card against newcomer Andre Ewell is a surprise. Thales Leites vs. Hector Lombard not even making it to the televised prelims is also unexpected.

Anyway, here’s what’s on tap for next Saturday, and note the different start times than usual:

Jimi Manuwa vs. Thiago Santos
Alex Oliveira vs. Carlo Pedersoli Jr
Sam Alvey vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
