Jimi Manuwa edges nearer UFC light heavyweight title after Corey Anderson KO

Jimi Manuwa edges nearer UFC light heavyweight title after Corey Anderson KO

However, that all changed when Anderson walked right into a long left hook and referee Leon Roberts did a fantastic job of calling it off right there so Overtime didn't need to take any more unnecessary damage. It was the last fight of the Irishman's UFC contract, but hopefully it's not the last time we see the Montreal-based fighter facing off against top-level opponents.

"I'm not interested in Jon Jones", he said as quoted on MMAFighting. Sometimes, I have to take some time to figure him out but then I for finish.

Manuwa said afterwards: "That was one of the great moments for me, getting a knockout in front of my home crowd in London".

The best was expected to be the main event that featured Corey Anderson against Jimi Manuwa.

Jon Jones hasn't been as active, as the former champion was stripped of his interim title and has been serving a one year suspension ever since.

"I feel really good", Nelson said.

The impressive nature of the performance thrust Manuwa into the top tier of UFC light heavyweights, and afterward, the 37-year-old Brit seized the moment to call for his shot at the victor of the upcoming championship rematch between UFC titleholder Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson. Whether Manuwa will get his wish to welcome Jon Jones back to the Octagon himself is still up in the air- his knockout over Anderson today is certainly a step in the right direction.

Cormier (18-1) is scheduled to defend his title against Johnson (22-5) at UFC 210 next month in Buffalo. "I'm going to fly to Vegas to meet with (UFC president) Dana (White) after this and we'll see what happens".

But at the end of the day, the UFC championship is Manuwa's priority. So, I'd like to avenge that loss against the most feared man probably on the UFC roster in "Rumble" Johnson. This got the Englishman back into the win column following his loss to current number contender Anthony Johnson at UFC 191. I believe I was winning clearly and got caught. The top Canadian bantamweight outside of the UFC earned his ninth-straight win on Friday night when he submitted Maget Hammo in the second round of his headlining fight at Hard Knocks 54 in Calgary. And I've proven through my career that I'm not scared to fight anybody, because it's mixed martial arts.
