UFC Fight Night 37 video preview for 'Gustafsson vs Manuwa' Fight Pass event on March 8 in London

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will invade London, England, as part of its mixed martial arts (MMA) European tour with UFC Fight Night 37, available only on "Fight Pass" and headlined by a light heavyweight clash of contenders pitting Alexander Gustafsson against Jimi Manuwa.

We're less than a week away!

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson will risk his spot in the pecking order against unbeaten up-and-comer Jimi Manuwa in the main event of UFC Fight Night 37, which takes place at the O2 Arena in London, England, on Sat., March 8, 2014.

And you can only watch it on Fight Pass.

A win for Gustafsson (15-2) likely guarantees him a shot at the 205-pound title, which will be contested between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in April. "The Mauler" has been able to keep himself "in the mix" by nearly breaking "Bones" at the UFC 165 pay-per-view (PPV) last September.

But he's got some stiff competition.

Manuwa (14-0) has been flawless to date and a win here -- particularly a finish -- would likely steal the Swede's spot in line, or at least pull him into a tie with Daniel Cormier, or perhaps even Phil Davis, if "Mr. Wonderful" can get it done against Anthony Johnson in Baltimore.

It's still anyone's ballgame.

In addition to the headliner, this weekend's UFC event across the pond will feature a lightweight co-main event pitting veteran striker Melvin Guillard against former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 finalist Michael Johnson, while Brad Pickett battles Neil Seery in flyweight action.

Woo hoo!
