Jimi Manuwa hasn’t been seen inside of the Octagon since getting pummeled by Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 214.
The fighter has been trying to get back on track since the crushing defeat, but hasn’t had much luck in finding top level opponents to fight.
Manuwa has since taken to Twitter to claim that two of the divisions best have refused to fight him:
These lhw’s are pussys— JIMI MANUWA (@POSTERBOYJM) December 21, 2017
These pussys are declining fights to hold on to their positions. What’s the point in rankings if your not gonna fight the top guys. #pussys— JIMI MANUWA (@POSTERBOYJM) December 21, 2017
Glover declined. Shogun declined.— JIMI MANUWA (@POSTERBOYJM) December 21, 2017
Following the brief rant on Twitter, a frustrated Manuwa also posted the following on Instagram:
Neither Glover Teixeira or Mauricio Rua have responded to the claims made by the light heavyweight contender. Manuwa also sits at #4 in the rankings at the moment, which means that Glover Teixeira and Alexander Gustafsson are the only fighters ranked ahead of him who do not have a bout signed right now.
