Jimi Manuwa may have fallen to Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson, thereby diminishing some of his aura as a total badass, but the Brit power puncher has beaten everyone else – and usually by separating foes from the consciousness. That’s no mean feat, especially given that for while now he’s been calling the Octagon home.
At UFC 214 on Saturday, Manuwa will take on Volkan Oezdemir. Unless Oezdemir has somehow become a top five fighter in the division, this bout will probably end with Manuwa punching his lights out.
And what then? Manuwa and Cormier have gone back and forth a little bit on social media. Regardless of whether or not Cormier keeps his belt against Jon Jones on Saturday, maybe Manuwa and Cormier could scrap next. Who knows?
Here’s a sample of Manuwa’s handiwork. Watch and enjoy.
