Valentino Petrescu Vs Jimi Manuwa
Jimi Manuwa was the favourite to win after all it was Jimi ‘Poster Boy’ Manuwa Light-Heavy Weight title on the line against Petrescu at UCMMA 14.
It was the main event the Light Heavyweight Title Fight, Jimi Manuwa was the favourite to win and proved why when he landed the first punch with a left hook.
There was a lot of respect in the ring at the beginning with mit nudges from both opponents every time there was a punch landed, however the title fight was led by Manuwa with right knees and left hooks from Jimi Manuwa to Valentino and a TKO
Overall it was quite a short match with Manuwa stating “..It was nothing he wobbled and I finished him” in the first round. There is no doubt that Manuwa needs some fresh meat for a real challenge Valentino could have competed in the title fight via Skype or Twitter and would have had a bigger impact.
Jason Barrett whom is a Welter Weight fighter and host of UCMMA stars in the forthcoming film The Naked Poet stated that “Jimmi is going to the top” they don’t call him Jimi ‘Poster Boy’ Manuwa for nothing.
Rep Dat caught up with Jimi Manuwa for a post match interview which is coming soon to Rep Dat.
