Martin McNeil, SB Nation

"Poster Boy" will meet "Big Deal" in Manchester, England later this year.

A light heavyweight bout between undefeated Jimi Manuwa and Ryan Jimmo is expected to be added to the Oct. 26 UFC Fight Night 30 card in England, according to sources close to the event.

The Nigerian-English Manuwa (13-0), who currently fights out of London, is 2-0 in the UFC, finishing both Kyle Kingsbury and Cyrille Diabate.

The Canadian Jimmo (18-2) got back on the winning track when he defeated Igor Pokrajac via unanimous decision at UFC 161 in June.

The event, headlined by Michael Bisping vs. Mark Munoz, will take place at the Manchester Evening News Arena, and the main card will air on FOX Sports 2.
