Default James Te Huna Vs Ryan Jimmo added to UFC London: And More

Fledgling powerhouse Te Huna takes on usually unexciting Jimmo who stirred a few fans with a brutally quick levelling of Perosh. Surely the winner of this will take on the winner of Diabate-Manuwa.

Mainly because I'm an atheist praying to God that Te Huna & Manuwa both win and fight each other

And highly touted prospect Gunnar Hansen takes on, IMO only decent, Justin Edwards, who UK fans may remember choking Neer out cold recently while ESPN ran a 'sorry for the poor quality' watermark as the picture scatted out.

Anyway, London card is insane, pissed off it's so close to my holiday, and after Xmas, and I'm broke, and it'll be well expensive.

Tough one to call, actually. I hope Te Huna wins, though. A much more exciting fighter.

Stylistically it's a good fight. But, overall, I don't like it. In this division he should be getting a bigger step up in competition or at least name value.

I would've liked to see; Te-Huna/Brandon Vera, or maybe throw him in against Phil Davis at UFC 155?

Manuwa/Te-Huna; I got Te-Huna, for now. What do my *****s think?

Diabate is a GREAT measuring stick for just how good Manuwa's striking is. After that it'll be pretty clear IMO. Te-Huna has been abusing some plotting Light-Heavies though. How did he do in the standup department against Gustafsson, anyone? I've only seen the finish to that fight.

There was not a lot, if any, substantial standup in that fight. On the feet, they were clinching, and the rest of the time they were on the ground.
