The UFC has added another bout to the Nottingham card in September, with England's Jimi Manuwa to fight Kyle Kingsbury in the light-heavyweight division.

The September 29 UFC on Fuel 5 card is headlined by a heavyweight match-up between Stefan Struve and Stipe Miocic. Also on the card are the likes of Dan Hardy, Brad Pickett and John Hathaway.

Manuwa is set to make his UFC debut after recently signing a contract with the organisation. He arrives with an 11-0 MMA record.

Blessed with explosive power Manuwa has won nine of those 11 fights inside the first round. He meets an opponent in Kingsbury who is coming off back-to-back losses.
