Jimi Manuwa does one thing: knock people out. Usually, that serves him well in the cage, although he has fallen to the very elite (like Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, who knocked him out instead). Corey Anderson has got some power himself, but he’s also got a more well-rounded set of skills. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your UFC Fight Night 107 main event.
Anderson has a plan, and it appears to involve mixing cautious, intermittent punches with takedown attempts and an unwavering trajectory away from Manuwa’s power hand. This strategy works for over half the first round…
…and then Manuwa simply tags him with a left hand and Anderson crumbles to the canvas stunned. That’s all she wrote, folks.
