    He is pretty serious about retirement. Even when he said he wanted to show them how to throw an uppercut, he later said that he was just teasing the world and had no plans whatsoever to fight again and that his fighting days are over. So i would say no, he wouldnt come out of retirement.

    Manuwa is on call if either guy pulls out.

    No, if either pull out, Manuwa will step in. He said it himself on the MMA Hour.

    He'd prob try to wrestle Jon for a round, then gas and be submitted.

    If given the choice I'd bet he says yes. Think they'd throw in Manuwa instead though. Rumble's performance against DC does not really warrant a title shot under any circumstances.
