Manuwa's savage one-punch knockout

A vicious left hook from Jimi 'Posterboy' Manuwa has prematurely ended the night of Corey Anderson at UFC London.

In front of his home-town crowd, Manuwa finished his American opponent just three minutes into the first round of their Main Event bout at the O2 Arena.

The result means Manuwa has won three of his last five fights, moving him up the light-heavyweight rankings.

He now has a record of 6-2 record in the UFC, with five victories ending in either a KO or TKO.

Now, the 37-year-old wants a shot at the light-heavyweight title, against either Daniel Cormier or Anthony Johnson.

"I want the winner out of DC (Daniel Cormier) and 'Rumble' (Anthony Johnson)," Manuwa said.

"It’s time for a title shot now."

Manuwa, who has Nigerian descent, also called out British boxing superstar David Haye after his victory.

"David Haye, let’s do this," he said.

He was then asked in what sport he would take Haye on, boxing or MMA.

"Boxing. Dana White, (boxing promoter) Eddie Hearn, let’s make it happen."

Incredibly, the Englishman's KO punch was eerily similar to one he unleashed to end his fight with Ovince Saint Preux last year, at UFC 204.

His huge knockout was just one of many we've seen in recent times.
