UFC Fight Night 37: Alexander Gustafsson vs. Jimi Manuwa Head-to-Toe Breakdown

The time has come for Alexander Gustafsson to earn his potential rematch with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. While the second meeting has been viewed by many as an inevitability, Gustafsson will first need to get through Jimi Manuwa at UFC Fight Night 37 in London.

While he is a sizeable underdog heading into Saturday, Manuwa has stopped his first three UFC opponents and has the knockout power to shock Gustafsson. The Englishman hasn't fought an opponent on Gustafsson's level, but he's also undefeated and has scored knockout wins in 13 of his 14 MMA bouts.

Meanwhile, "The Mauler" has not competed since his September war with Jones. The loss was only the second of Gustafsson's career. Following his other downfall, a submission loss to Phil Davis, the Swedish light heavyweight rattled off six consecutive wins to get his shot at the 205-pound championship.

As this important main event approaches, here is a closer look at how Gustafsson and Manuwa match up in all areas.
