UFC Fight Night 30 Adds Multiple Fights

Multiple fights have been added to the UFC’s card in Manchester, United Kingdom when they bring UFC Fight Night 30 in October.

First fight will be a light heavyweight showdown between Ryan Jimmo and British prospect, Jimi Manuwa. Manuwa is unbeaten so far in his 13 career fights including his two most recent wins under the UFC banner against Kyle Kingsbury and Cyrille Diabate. Jimmo is 18-2 and currently has a 2-1 record in the UFC. Jimmo won his last time out against Igor Pokrajac in June by unanimous decision.

Next fight added is a flyweight battle between John Lineker and native Brit, Phil Harris. The two were originally slated to fight at UFC 163, in Lineker’s home country of Brazil, but an injury forced Harris off the card. Lineker instead won his third straight fight, beating Jose Maria by TKO. Maria was overweight at weigh-ins and the fight was contested at 129 pounds. Harris is 1-1 in the UFC, winning this past February in England against Ulysses Gomez.

The final fight added to the UFC Fight Night 30 card is a lightweight battle between yet another Brit, Paul Taylor, and Anthony Njokuani. This will be Taylor’s first fight in almost three years. This is the third time this fight has been made and both previous times—UFC 138 and UFC on FUEL 4—the fight has fallen through due to injuries to Taylor.

UFC 166 adds Charles Oliveira versus Estevan Payan

Charles Oliveira will look to get back into the win column when he faces fellow featherweight, Estevan Payan at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston at the Toyota Center.

Oliveira has dropped his last two fights to top five featherweights, Cub Swanson and former lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar. Oliveira won “Fight of the Night” honors for his fight with Edgar and is 2-2 at 145-pounds. Oliveira won his first two fights against Eric Wisely and Jonathan Brookins.

Payan lost in his return to featherweight—and also his UFC debut—against Jeremy Stephens at UFC 160 in May. The former Strikeforce fighter was on an eight-fight win streak prior to the Stephens fight.

Narimani has amassed a 5-1 record so far and has signed a five-fight contract with Cage Warriors. No word yet on when Narimani will get that first fight under his new contract.
