- Following his victory over Corey Anderson at UFC Fight Night 107, Jimi Manuwa spoke with mmajunkie.com, here are the highlights...

The 37-year-old London native is hoping a stoppage win against Anderson will catapult him into title contention just in time for the return of Jones later this year.

Manuwa expects to end this fight with his power and he'll likely use his 63 percent takedown defense mark to keep things standing as he attempts to take out Anderson.

Messrs. Cormier, the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion, and Johnson do battle in the next UFC event - "UFC 210" in Buffalo, New York, on April 8 - for the division's title. "Jon Jones takes steroids and now he's been banned for steroids".

"I want the victor out of DC (Daniel Cormier) and [Anthony] "Rumble" [Johnson]".

"Listen, I don't turn down anybody", Manuwa said. As barbarous as that KO of St-Preux was, however, Manuwa's sparking of Anderson may have been even more so. I soaked it all in as I walked out and when I got into the Octagon.

The four ministers then held combined talks on worldwide and bilateral issues. Russian participants included Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov.

After the win, though, he made it clear that he wants that challenge when he called for the victor of next month's title fight between Cormier and Johnson.

Manuwa said afterwards: "That was one of the great moments for me, getting a knockout in front of my home crowd in London". "I will be fighting the elite fighters of the world, and we'll see what happens".

Diakiese put on a show in the opening exchanges of the fight, landing with eye-catching spinning kicks, but then it was just a single blistering right hand down the pipe that stopped Packalen dead in his tracks and sent him falling the mat as stiff as a board. UFC President Dana White first stated that he'd "never risk a main event with Jon Jones again", but later retracted his comment and explained that "Jones would probably try to get his title back".

Manuwa came into Saturday night ranked No. 4 in the UFC's media-generated rankings, and he certainly helped validate that ranking with his three-minute destruction of Anderson.

With that said, "The Poster Boy" has gone 3-2 in his past five contests overall, suffering knockout losses to Anthony Johnson and Alexander Gustafsson in that time. I don't want to win on points. The entire card streamed on UFC Fight Pass. "When I first started mixed martial arts, that's all I wanted - the title". That's what I've got a problem with.
