Jimi Manuwa believes he has what it takes to finish Daniel Cormier.
The “Poster Boy” was last seen on the receiving end of a 42-second knockout courtesy of Volkan Oezdemir. He’ll look to get back in the win column when he takes on Jan Błachowicz in a rematch at UFC London in March.
During a recent appearance on MMAFighting.com‘s “The MMA Hour,” Manuwa said Cormier wouldn’t have the same success with takedowns that’s he’s been getting if they fought:
“DC won’t be able to take me down that easily. He won’t be able to do what he did to Volkan to me. I’ve got better wrestling defense and I’ve got better jiu-jitsu than Volkan.”
He went on to say that he can finish Cormier.
“I truly believe that I can stop DC in two rounds; I truly believe that in myself. It’s just about getting there. I’m one, possibly two, fights away. That’s Blachowicz in March and then we’ll see what happens.”
