    Not a good fight for Jimmi yet. I think Jimmi is awesome, but I want to see him progress naturally instead of being rushed! Te Huna next would make sense.

    Give him Thiago Silva and let them smash the fuck out of each other.

    I don't see the point in this fight either. Give him mid level striker.

    Call my cynical but I don't think the point of this fight is anything to do with Manuwa, this is purely about giving Gustafsson a high profile win over a well regarded & undefeated fighter before getting the rematch with Jones.

    However Jimi has the power & ability to seriously screw up Dana's plans.

    if this is the case i cannot see how it will screw up Dana's plans, its a win win. Gustafasson wins, then he's beaten an undefeated fighter and puts him back in with a title shot. If Manuwa wins, Dana has a new UK/Euopean Poster Boy ( minus the pun)

    The point I was trying to make is that obviously a Jimi win would be great for him, and see his career skyrocket.but there would be more interest in a Gust/Jones rematch than Jones vs. Manuwa.

    Crocop vs. Gonzaga was over here. Gonzaga wins in a great upset when clearly the UFC had been looking to make Randy vs. Crocop. The Gonzaga title fight did well, but a Crocop/ Couture fight would have done bigger business.
