    Jimi Manuwa and Tom "Kong" Watson join UFC

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Thu Jul 05, 2012 2:12 pm

    Jimi Manuwa the undefeated Lhw with 11 finishes in 11 fights and BAMMA Champ Tom Watson have both signed for the UFC.

    Watson has only 1 loss in his last 12 fights and that was due to point deduction for grabbing ropes, he has beat and retired Ninja Rua and beat Matt Horwich recently.

    Dont know if either of these guys will become contenders but good signings none the less.

    Both are going to fight on the September card in Nottingham. Good news.

    I was beginning to think Watson would never sign for the UFC! Good signing, can't wait to see him fight. Any rumoured opponents?

    I think Watson's a great signing but Manuwa I think will get badly exposed at 205 in the UFC.

    He's fighting Brad Tavares!! Also, John Maguire vs John Hathaway in Nottingham too, this is shaping up to be a pretty solid card Very Happy

    Some exciting fights on this card now, Fabio Maldonado is an amazig fighter whos got a rough time with the decisions,


    his opponent is 5-0 in MMA and is cutting from 230. He is a propper "k-1 level" striker.

    I love Maldonado but I have a feeling this fight could send him to 185. Look forward to it, really hoping for Maldonado.

    Mills vs Ludwig is another cracking fight, Hardy vs Amir while not too relevant rankings wise will be great. Robbie Peralta is a top 15 ranked guy now, a win in England and he is going to be fighting a top contender next. Im hoping he puts on a good performance.
