holy shit that's a huge step up in competition for Manuwa.. I know they want to test him but jesus christ he'll be destroyed in every aspect of the fight.
PS: Manuka is English by citizenship.
I think this is a seriously risky move on the part of the match makers. Sure it's a big step up for Manuwa but if he loses it will derail the hype train. On the other hand, I think Manuwa is just dangerous enough to really threaten The Mauler and if he does manage to win there goes the Jones rematch out the window. Seems like kind of a lose/lose to me.
Wonder what unranked fighter Phil Davis will get.
Manuwa doesn't have the gas tank or technique to make this a real fight. Gotta wonder if this matchup was a result of them not being able to secure Cormier at 205(especially since he just mentioned not wanting to cut outside of the US) and I could DEFINITELY see them protecting Goose from Phil Davis, so not to fuckup the Bones/Goose rematch, since I really don't think Davis could draw for much against Jones.
Goose is gonna wreck him.
Manuwa has looked good. IMO this will be more competitive than everybody think.
Huge step up for manuwa, goose will win by dominant decision.
^how i felt when the UFC scheduled yet another bs fight for goose.
Huge opportunity for Manuwa, but Goose's experience and craftiness will be a bit much... Should take the decision in a good fight.
