Jimi Manuwa explains why he’s hesitant to call out “Shogun”

England’s Jimi Manuwa is one of the top light heavyweight contenders in the UFC

That said, his recent knockout loss to Volkan Oezdemir probably means he’s another impressive win away from a title shot…

When weighing the options for Manuwa’s next fight, there are a few that really stand out. One is Glover Teixeira, who won big over Misha Cirkunov last weekend (though he doesn’t seem that interested in this potential fight). Another is MMA legend Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, who has recently been enjoying a significant, late-career resurgence.
