Default Jimi Manuwa - The new UFC Prospect

An English fighter, now hired by the UFC....LHW.
Apparently an exciting fighter with powerful hands and good knees, also a good gnp.....looking forward, but obviously the competition would be harder on the UFC, anyway....

HeŽll face Kyle Kingsbury in his debut in Nottingham, England......

check it out

11 fights, 11 wins, 10 knockouts and 1 submission.....pretty good.

Manuwa is a beast... he considers himself English though... Nigerian Born

Him and Tom Watson could stir things up!!!

You've got me looking forward to this fight now - but Kingsbury is no joke, and after losing two in a row he'll be looking to wrestle his way to a safe decision.

I hope Manuwa gets a chance to show off his talents.

How is his wrestling? Kingsbury will certainly be looking to take him down and use his GnP, especially after getting destroyed in his last outing. He needs a win. All that Kingsbury really has going for him is that he is huge, and he is strong, but that may be enough.

He looks like a beast but the UFC is a new level but you won't know until you do it.

Nice standup, didn't really see anyone try to take him down, but hopefully he's halfway decent at stuffing. What an exciting fighter to know about, you say he's humble, I'm a fan already.

Didnt he turn down a contract from the UFC a few years ago? Anyone looking for the KO the way he does is bound to be a fan favourite. Kids a natural and has tons of poise. He's on the wrong side of 30 though. So he needs to make this count.

Yeah... TWICE!!!

He has pretty good TDD. I've not seen him against high level wrestlers though

He is a reformed criminal... a bit of a wideboy but at least he has sorted himself out

His catchphrase is "Get hench, or die trying"

I just dont get you English guys on here. Some bloke could be born in Africa or any foreign nation, moves to England, flys the Brit flag and all of sudden they are yours ?

Fighting is about individuals not about nations.

Good prospect though.
