UFC Fight Night 127 Primer: Jimi Manuwa the One-Trick Pony

We’ve seen Jimi Manuwa at his best.

With impeccable timing and accuracy, his practically put his fist through the face of Corey Anderson, Ovince Saint Preux and Kyle Kingsbury. He’s also racked up wins against Jan Blachowicz, Ryan Jimmo and Cyrille Diabate.

On the other side of the coin, we’ve seen Manuwa eat a gigantic turd sandwich in the cage. Volkan Oezdemir put him away. Anthony “Rumble” Johnson smoked him. And Alexander Gustafsson took his lunch money and left him stuffed in a locker with a killer wedgie.

Take away Manuwa’s deadly punching and what do you have? A one-trick pony who can’t do much else besides that particular thing we’ve all come to see it perform.

Which is fine. The Octagon always needs gatekeepers, and the gatekeepers adapt at knocking lesser opponents out are fun to have around.

On Saturday, at UFC Fight Night 127, Manuwa and Blachowicz are going to rematch in the co-main event. Blachowicz avoiding getting knocked out in their first meeting, and has since earned a few more wins in the UFC.

Will the Polish fighter get caught with a conscious-stealing punch? Or does he have the one-trick pony figured out?

UFC Fight Night 127 Primer: Werdum vs. Volkov Under a Microscope

The world isn’t exactly breathless in anticipation for this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 127 main event, but Fabricio Werdum versus Alexander Volkov is what we’ve got, so let’s dig into it.

By this point, everyone knows Werdum. He was the heavyweight champ for a hot minute, the result of top-level jiu-jitsu, impressive wins over the likes of Cain Velasquez and Mark Hunt, and a stand-up game that at times can be aggressive as hell. But that hot minute came to an end when he thought it’d be a good idea to chase Stipe Miocic around the cage, and, well, zoinks. Dude got knocked out and Miocic has been the champ ever since.

Volkov was Bellator’s top heavyweight for a brief point in time as well, although he managed to find the “L” a few times before jumping ship to the UFC. Since then, Volkov has done moderately well taking out Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve, although those cats have been shadows of their former selves for years (and Nelson isn’t even in the UFC anymore!).

What’s going to happen in London, England on Saturday? Well, a lot of Brits are going to get drunk on warm beer and do soccer chants in the audience. Meanwhile, in the Octagon, Werdum is either going to be timid and pull guard like a fool, or be aggressive and overwhelm Volkov or be aggressive and walk into Volkov’s fists.

UFC analyst Jimmy Smith has more to say on the subject. Give him a watch, will you?
