UFC Fight Night 37 Start Time: When and Where to Watch Gustafsson vs. Manuwa

In a continued effort to reinforce the Fight Pass platform, the UFC is bringing a few exciting, high-stakes bouts to Saturday's Fight Night 37 fight card—culminating in the showdown between light heavyweight contenders Alexander Gustafsson and Jimi Manuwa in London.

It wasn't long ago that the Swede was pushing champion Jon Jones to his limits. If he's successful on Saturday night, there's every reason to believe he'll get a second shot at the light heavyweight strap.

On the other hand, hometown favorite Jimi Manuwa may find a way to secure his 15th consecutive victory and maintain his undefeated status. With 93 percent of his wins coming by way of KO, he could cause Gustafsson some trouble in the stand-up exchanges.

Manuwa has the ability to finish of the feet, whereas Gustafsson's fight savvy could be more than enough to get the fight on the ground and secure the necessary submission.

With a title shot possibly brewing, this is certainly an interesting bout to cap off the affairs in London's O2 Arena.

Let's take a look at the entire fight card that precedes this important main event.

In the co-main event, hard-hitting Melvin Guillard will look to bring some stability back to his recent UFC track record. If he can stop Michael Johnson, he'll break his long streak of losing two bouts for every one he wins.

If you factor in Johnson's accurate counter punching and even-keeled approach, it becomes clear that Guillard's task won't be easy.

As the evening's biggest favorite to win, Brad Pickett will square off against fellow flyweight Neil Seery. Regardless of the outcome, fans are sure to be treated to another fast-paced scrap. 

Earlier in the main card, the UFC's undefeated welterweight from Iceland will look to secure his 12th straight victory. If Gunnar Nelson manages to finish underdog Omari Akhmedov, he'll continue to rise to stardom among international fight fans.
