The UFC has officially announced another match-up for its return to London on Feb. 27, featuring light heavyweights Jimi Manuwa and Nikita Krylov.

Manuwa (15-2) looks to once again restart a winning streak in the UFC following a second-round loss to Anthony Johnson in September. "Poster Boy", who only lost to top ranked fighters "Rumble" and Alexander Gustafsson in his 17-fight career, holds a 4-2 UFC record.

Krylov (19-4), on the other hand, attempts to add another win to his three-fight streak following first-round stoppages over Marcos Rogerio de Lima, Stanislav Nedkov and Cody Donovan. Born in Ukraine, "Al Capone" is 3-1 since dropping to the light heavyweight division.

UFC Fight Night 83 takes place at the O2 Arena in London, England. The UFC has yet to announce the main event.
