Shogun Battles Manuwa on November 8

November 8 is shaping up to be a great night for fight fans, as the organization announced a second high-impact main event Friday afternoon. On the heels of Sydney's five-rounder between Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold on UFC FIGHT PASS, Uberlandia, Brazil's UFC Fight Night event on FOX Sports 1 will close the night out with a light heavyweight battle between former world champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and British banger Jimi Manuwa.

Back in action for the first time since his exciting rematch with Dan Henderson in March, Curitiba's Rua will pull out all the stops to keep his home country fans happy. Traveling into the Lions Den will be London's Manuwa, a feared knockout artist who has finished each of his 14 pro victories.
