Jimi Manuwa tired of getting ducked by p*ssies like Shogun Rua and Glover Teixeira

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Manuw vs Anderson Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight slugger, Jimi Manuwa, was knocked out by Volkan Oezdemir at the UFC 214 pay-per-view (PPV) event last July in Anaheim, Calif., and like any fighter coming off a loss, wants to get back inside the cage as soon as possible.

Too bad all those “pussies” are ducking him.

That includes former division title contender Glover Teixeira, along with ex-light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua, identified by name during Manuwa’s recent Twitter rant.

While Manuwa is ranked No. 4 in the light heavyweight division (see the full rankings here), “Poster Boy” failed to capitalize on three big opportunities, going down in flames against Alexander Gustafsson, Anthony Johnson, and the aforementioned Oezdemir.

Each of those losses kept him from that coveted title shot.

Manuwa (17-3) also turns 38 in February, so it’s easy to see why he’s in such a big hurry to get back into the swing of things; however, nobody with a decent ranking wants to play ball.

Any suggestions?
