MMA

UFC 204 hasn't been officially announced, but there are more than a few fights rumored for the show.

MMA Fighting is reporting that Jimi Manuwa (#9) (15-2) is slated to take on former interim title challenger Ovince Saint Preux (#6) (19-8), and Stefan Struve (#14) (27-8) will face Ruslan Magomedov (#15)  (14-1) on the card. These bouts will compliment the rumored Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson middleweight championship fight planned for the event.

Magomedov is riding a three-fight UFC winning streak, dating back over two years. Struve has won two of his last three fights, including victories over Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva and Antonio "Minotauro" Nogueira. Despite an inconsistent career, the 28-year old Struve also has a victory over current UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic.

Ovince Saint Preux returns after coming up short in an interim UFC Light Heavyweight Championship bout against Jon Jones on short notice, but is 7-3 in the UFC. Manuwa has dropped two of his last three, and has struggled when facing top-10 competition.

UFC 204 is expected to take place on October 8 in London, England.
