An MMAjunkie Radio tradition is to ask fighters about memorable street-fighting encounters. UFC 214’s Jimi Manuwa offered up a solid one from his apparently lengthy resume.
“It’s no secret I wasn’t an angel growing up,” Manuwa told MMAjunkie Radio. “I got into a lot of street fights. I’ve never lost a fight in my life on the streets.”
Manuwa (17-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC), who meets Volkan Oezdemir (14-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in Saturday’s pay-per-view main-card opener at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., described a nightclub encounter more than a decade ago in which he came to the aid of a loudmouth friend and ended up knocking out a much bigger man.
Prior to his UFC 214 bout with Oezdemir, which he hopes will be his ticket to earning the next title shot in the UFC light heavyweight division,” watch the video above to hear “Poster Boy” relive his street-fighting encounter.
