Jimi Manuwa
The UFC has continued to add local talent to the upcoming UFC: Nottingham card with undefeated prospect Jimi Manuwa now being added to the roster.

Manuwa confirmed the signing via Twitter on Thursday. The signing was first reported by Fighter’s Only.

With a perfect record of 11-0, JImi Manuwa maybe most infamously popped on everyone’s radar when he turned down two separate offers to sign with the UFC previously.

Manuwa stated in several interviews including his Dec, 2011 stop on MMAWeekly Radio where he explained that he wanted to feel truly ready to sign with the UFC before jumping at the opportunity.

Now just over six months later, Manuwa must believe he’s ready because he’s now signed with the UFC and set to debute later this year.

No opponent has been determined for Manuwa as of yet, but he’s expected to debut at the UFC: Nottingham card coming up in September.
