Jimi Manuwa is the hottest light heavyweight prospect in the UK. The reigning UCMMA (Cage Rage UK) Light Heavyweight Champion is already under UFC radar, having put off a chance to sign with the top brand promotion. Undefeated Manuwa (10-0) has decided to work on improving his skill set, sharpening his game some more before heading to the big stage.
Manuwa has signed with the premiere British promotion, BAMMA and is expected to make his first BAMMA appearance on their December 3 ticket, titled "The Beatdown". Ex-UFC fighter, and #4 world ranked middleweight Nate Marquardt is scheduled to make his BAMMA debut in the headline slot of the card.
Manuwa's skills are obvious in this video of his most recent outing in which he earns a first round TKO over Nick Chapman. Man, those are some knees! Just watch the crowd go insane!!!
