Rising British light-heavyweight prospect Jimi Manuwa had the UFC deal he worked hard so to get - and still decided to pull the plug.
The 28-year-old knockout artist is in no hurry. When he gets to the big show, he wants to hit the ground running. In the meantime, he's logging cage time.
Manuwa looks to defend his Ultimate Challenge MMA light-heavyweight belt against Nick Chapman at "UCMMA 24: Hands of War" on Saturday. The overseas event takes places at The Troxy in London.
