    HISTORY

    UFC Fight Night 107: Manuwa vs. Anderson (also known as UFC Fight Night 107) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on March 18, 2017 at the The O2 Arena in London, England.[2]

    This event was expected to be UFC Fight Night 108, but an initially planned UFN 106 in Las Vegas, Nevada never materialized, prompting the change in numbers.[3]

    A light heavyweight bout between Jimi Manuwa and The Ultimate Fighter: Team Edgar vs. Team Penn light heavyweight winner Corey Anderson headlined the event,[4]

    Brad Pickett was expected to face Henry Briones, in what would be his retirement bout.[5] However, Briones pulled out a week before the event and was replaced by Marlon Vera.[6] Due to the short notice and preparation for Vera, the bout was contested at a catchweight of 140 lbs.[7]

    Veronica Macedo was expected to face Lina Länsberg at the event. However, Macedo pulled out of the fight on February 28.[8] She was replaced by promotional newcomer Lucie Pudilová. The fighters first met in 2015, when Länsberg won via unanimous decision at Battle of Botnia 2015 in Sweden.[9]

    At the weigh-ins, Ian Entwistle came in at 139 lbs, three pounds over the bantamweight limit of 136 lbs. As a result, he was fined 20% of his purse, which would go to his opponent Brett Johns and the bout would proceed at a catchweight.[10] However, Entwistle was pulled from the fight on the day of the event and the bout was canceled.[11]

    Moments before the start of the event, Tom Breese was deemed unfit to compete and was pulled from his bout against Oluwale Bamgbose.[12]
