The number 6 ranked light-heavyweight, Corey Anderson, crossed the pond to take on #4 Jimi Manuwa in his hometown.
It didn’t take long for Manuwa to dispatch Anderson. With a lunging left hook, Manuwa sent Anderson to the canvas; no follow-up was needed. Manuwa’s immediate reaction was of surprise. Maybe he thought it would have been more of an effort?
Following the fight, Manuwa said he would like a title shot, and face the winner of Cormier and Johnson. He is also open to welcoming back Jon Jones. And something that came from nowhere, Manuwa said he would like to step into a boxing ring and face former heavyweight champion, David Haye.
With a callout like David Haye, it’s safe to say that Conor McGregor has changed the combat sports landscape, and we may see more MMA fighters calling out boxers.
