The UFC hasn't officially announced UFC 204 for Manchester yet, but fights continue to be attached to the card. This round has a battle of powerful light heavyweights, and an intriguing heavyweight matchup. Ovince Saint Preux is expected to meet Jimi Manuwa, while Stefan Struve is expected to tangle with Ruslan Magomedov.

MMA Fighting shared the news earlier today.

Saint Preux (19-8, 7-3 UFC) is coming off a decision loss to Jon Jones where he broke his arm early in the fight. He was a late replacement for Daniel Cormier. Manuwa (15-2. 4-2 UFC) hasn't competed since a knockout loss to Anthony Johnson last September.

Struve (27-8, 11-6 UFC) picked up a massive 16-second KO win over Antonio Silva in May. Magomedov (14-1, 3-0 UFC) has picked up decision victories in all three of his UFC fights so far, with the last coming over Shawn Jordan last October.

UFC 204 is expected to see UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping defend his title against Dan Henderson is a rematch of their famous UFC 100 bout. Also scheduled for the card is another middleweight bout between Vitor Belfort and Gegard Mousasi.
