- Jimi Manuwa recently spoke about Saturday's fight with Alexander Gustafsson. Here are the highlights…
On His Underdog Status: "There's been talk ever since I started fighting – that I'm not ready, or this, that and the other. I'm numb to it now, and after all the talk, it's going down on Saturday. I'm going to win the fight, and that's it. I'm not buying into what he's doing after this fight."
On Facing Alexander Gustafsson: "He's a professional, so I don't think he's looking past me," Manuwa said. "But I'm just a fighter, and I'll beat who's in front of me."
Who Will He Call Out If He Wins?: "I don't call out fighters, and I don't think I ever will," Manuwa said. "I don't care where I am in the rankings or anything like that – I just want a UFC belt."
