MANUWA VS ANDERSON

Add another one to the poster collection for light heavyweight contender Jimi Manuwa, as he scored a one punch first round knockout of Corey Anderson in Saturday's UFC FIGHT NIGHT main event at the O2 Arena in London.

"The left hook is always the shot," said London's Manuwa. "One shot, one kill."

 
The No. 6-ranked Anderson set a furious pace early, and even when he came up short on takedowns, he stayed busy. In response, Manuwa calmly stalked his foe, and when Anderson circled off the fence, a single left hook ended matters, with Manuwa walking away as referee Leon Robert's halted the bout at the 3:05 mark.

With the win, the No. 4-ranked Manuwa improves to 17-2; Anderson falls to 10-3.

NELSON VS JOUBAN

In the UFC Fight Night co-main event, Alan Jouban tried to do all the right things to counter the unorthodox attack of fellow welterweight standout Gunnar Nelson, but the MMA wizard from Iceland refused to be figured out, as he scored a second-round submission victory.

Jouban was using a solid stick and move strategy as the fight began, but Nelson kept steady pressure on, eventually getting his foe to the mat with a little over two minutes left in the opening round. From there, he moved to the mount but was unable to finish the Louisiana native.

In the second, Jouban came out aggressively and scored well with some punches before a straight right staggered him. Nelson immediately dragged him to the mat and the guillotine choke finish came moments later at the 46-second mark, improving Nelson's record to 16-2-1. Jouban falls to 15-5.

ALLEN VS AMIRKHANI

One of the most highly anticipated bouts on Saturday's event was the main card opener between featherweight prospects Arnold Allen and Makwan Amirkhani, and the two lived up to the hype with a fast-paced technical battle won by Allen via split decision.

Scores were 30-27 twice and 28-29 for England's Allen, now 12-1; Finland's Amirkhani falls to 13-3.

Amirkhani promised a fast finish, and if landed the flying knee he opened the fight with, he might have gotten it, but Allen avoided the shot and the back and forth scrap commenced.

Featuring scrambles, submission attempts and plenty of twists and turns, the fight saw Amirkhani with plenty of chances to take over the fight, but Allen always had an answer for his foe's attacks, leading him to a close, but well-earned victory.
