UFC on Fuel TV 5 Prospect Watch: 13 Things You Need to Know About Jimi Manuwa
(Martin Rhodes/Sherdog)

Welcome to the UFC, "Poster Boy" Jimi Manuwa.

Arguably one of the most dangerous light heavyweight prospects in Europe right now, the Nigerian-English phenomenon cut his teeth in his home country before signing on to a UFC contract this past summer. Now, Manuwa looks to make a major statement in the UFC's light heavyweight division at the expense of TUF 8 contestant Kyle Kingsbury at UFC on Fuel TV 5 in Nottingham, England Sept. 29.

The UFC on Fuel 5 card will see a headliner of undefeated Stipe Miocic taking on Stefan Struve, while Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy fights Amir Sadollah in the night's co-headliner. Manuwa vs. Kingsbury will take place on the night's Facebook undercard.

We know what "Kingsbu" can do, as he owned a four-fight win streak prior to his current two-fight skid. Not only did Kingsbury put a nice streak together, with wins over Ricardo Romero and Fabio Maldonado, and we've already given you some of the bits and pieces about Manuwa, but take some time out with me, if you will, so we can completely comprehend exactly what Kingsbury must contend with tomorrow night.

Trust me, you will thank yourself later.
