    I'm just catching up on this weeks UFC tonight and this was part of Ariel's news for the week. I hadn't seen it posted.

    here's the current top 15.

    Champion : Jon Jones
    1 Alexander Gustafsson
    2 Daniel Cormier
    3 Anthony Johnson
    4 Rashad Evans
    5 Phil Davis
    6 Glover Teixeira
    7 Ryan Bader
    8 Ovince Saint Preux
    9 Dan Henderson
    10 Jimi Manuwa
    11 Mauricio Rua
    12 Rafael Cavalcante
    13 Fabio Maldonado
    14 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
    15 Patrick Cummins

    i'm guessing he'll fight OSP since that's the only possible fight.

    What has Manuwa done to deserve a top-10 fight in the first place?

    So did Pat Cummins.

    I think we all can agree they didn't deserve those fights.

    Well, he is in the top 10....

    I don't see what more he can do.

    Not sure why everyone is defending Manuwa, he is being a chicken shit. He has already made up his mind that he will lose to Cummins.

    I think the guy's point was that Jimi Manuwa hasn't beaten anyone impressive. not to say that Pat has either. Manuwa's best win is either Jimmo or Kingsbury

    Based on what?

    UFC rankings are a well known joke.

    And thus the business of MMA continues.... moving ever farther away from the spirit of the sport.

    Coffee Grinder would have been an interesting challenge for Manuwa, and vice versa.

    maybe manuwa should try winning a fight outside of the top 10 before getting smashed by someone else in the top 10 again

    not sure. Feijao is one of my favorite fighters so that's a fight i'd love to see (Feijao vs. either of them) but he shit the bad so badly in his last fight, god knows how they'll treat him from now on.

    Manuwa has 3 wins in the UFC, he's not above fighting Cummins.
