Alexander Gustafsson confirmed his place as the number one contender in the light-heavyweight division with this impressive stoppage of dangerous striker Jimi Manuwa.
Fighting on the UFC Fight Night card in Manuwa’s hometown of London, the two traded blows until Gustafsson landed this knee in the second round. He followed it up with some excellent uppercuts which forced the referee to step in and save the dazed Manuwa.
It may have been too big a step too soon for Manuwa but Gustafsson continues to impress. The sooner his rematch with the reigning champion Jon Jones happens the better.
