Jimi Manuwa vs. Ovince Saint Preux, Stefan Struve vs. Ruslan Magomedov targeted for UFC 204

Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 204 has yet to be officially announced, but the fight is card is filling up.

The promotion is targeting Jimi Manuwa vs. Ovince Saint Preux and Stefan Struve vs. Ruslan Magomedov, MMA Fighting has learned.

Manuwa (15-2) hasn't fought since his knockout loss to Anthony Johnson last September. He was scheduled to fight earlier this year, however, an injury sidelined him.

Saint Preux (19-8) will look to rebound following his interim light-heavyweight title loss to Jon Jones in April. He broke his left arm in that fight but is recovering well.

Meanwhile, Struve (27-8) is coming off a 16-second knockout of Antonio Silva in May, while Magomedov has won his last nine fights in a row, including his first three in the UFC.

As of right now, UFC 204 is expected to take place on Oct. 8 in England, however, it is still unclear where in England it will be held. There have also been talks of Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson 2 for the middleweight title headlining the card, but that fight has not been finalized yet either.
