Jimi Manuwa “Iooking at” UFC Fight Night Moscow, UK in Golden Period with “New Stars Like Darren Till”

UFC light-heavyweight, Jimi Manuwa declares: “I’m looking at September Moscow” and that “new stars like Darren Till” is one of the main reasons why the UK is in its ‘Golden Period’ of MMA; with British UFC star, Darren Till, having recently defeated, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson at, UFC Liverpool.

The UFC had recently announced that they will be hosting their first event (UFC Fight Night Moscow) in Russia at the Olimpiyskiy Arena, Moscow on, September 15, 2018.
