- Following his victory over Corey Anderson at UFC Fight Night 107, Jimi Manuwa spoke with, here are the highlights... In the main event, Manuwa made short work of rising contender Corey Anderson, knocking him out with a vicious left hook only minutes into the first round.

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. "But I'm focused on the belt right now, and that's going to be the victor of DC and 'Rumble" Johnson'.

A second takedown was navigated around as Manuwa proved his homework was done in time.

On his loss to Rumble, Manuwa was even more critical of his performance; "I took a lot of good stuff from the "Rumble" fight like my weight, my strength".

LONDON CALLING Who is fighting at UFC Fight Night in London, when is it and how can I get hold of tickets?

Cormier (18-1) is scheduled to defend his title against Johnson (22-5) at UFC 210 next month in Buffalo. "I told Alex (Gustafsson) and Jimi after, "Thank you for letting me step in the cage with you.' Not that I'm over-respecting him, but I respect him as he's the No. 4-ranked guy (in the official UFC rankings). I'm going to fly to Las Vegas to meet with Dana, and we'll see what happens". Prior to this performance, the man known as "Overtime" dropped a narrow split decision to former UFC and Pride FC champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 198 in May. "Sometimes I have to take some time, figure him out, and then go for the finish", Mr. Nelson said in the post-fight interview in describing his game plan. Johnson victor is who he wants next - he's saving Haye for a later time. He's where I've got to get to and that's what I've got to do to get to the top.

Pickett began as a featherweight and has fought as low as flyweight during his UFC run. I made a silly mistake by throwing a head kick without putting anything behind it, which cost me the fight. "When I first started mixed martial arts, that's all I wanted - the title".
