Jimi
Manuwa
has been looking to fight Glover
Teixeira
ever since the two light heavyweights signed to the

Ultimate Fighting Championship
back in 2012.

However a recent scheduling of the two for UFC
Fight Night 137
next month was not meant to be, as Teixeira was
forced out of the bout with an injury.

Instead, Manuwa will take on middleweight contender Thiago
Santos
in a 205-pound tilt on Sept. 22 in Sao Paulo, ESPN
reported on Friday. “Marreta” is fresh off of a win over Kevin
Holland
at
UFC 227
on Aug. 4. Meanwhile, Manuwa will be looking to bounce
back after two losses in a row, a quick knockout defeat at the
hands of Volkan
Oezdemir
last year and a decision loss to Jan
Blachowicz
in their rematch.
