It appears ever since that is was announced a few hours ago that Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson will be facing Jimi Manuwa next on UFC 191, they have taken to good old twitter for a nice, funny exchange of words.
UFC Fight Night 64 came from Krakow in Poland for the first time in UFC history where Mirko Cro Cop avenged his loss against Gabriel Gonzaga in the third round by way of TKO.
Cro Cop came back from being in danger in rounds one and two, to throw some heavy damaging elbows that set up the ending of an onslaught of vicious ground and pound that sealed the ‘revenge’ deal at the 3 minute 30 second mark of round three.
Here are the official results:
Mirko Cro Cop Def Gabriel Gonzaga Via TKO 3 mins 30 secs Round Three
Jimi Manuwa Def Jan Blachowicz Via Unanimous Decision 30-27, 30-27, 29-28
