It was expected that Anthony "Rumble" Johnson would return the Octagon following his defeat to Daniel Cormier at UFC 187, and many had expected Jan Blachowicz to be his opponent, but the UFC have today confirmed that British knockout artist Jimi Manuwa will be fighting Johnson to try and put himself in contention for a title shot.

Of Manuwa's 16 professional fights, only his victory against Blachowicz in April went the distance, and with Anthony Johnson's fondness of knocking people out too, we are definitely expecting a stand-up war in this one.
