UFC 214 Results: Volkan Oezdemir destroys Jimi Manuwa

Volkan Oezdemir stuns Jimi Manuwa with brutal knockout after 40 seconds

Volken Oezdemir made short work of No. 3 ranked Jimi Manuwa at UFC 214 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. on Saturday, finishing "Poster Boy" by knockout in 42 seconds.

The 37-year-old was facing an unknown in Oezdemir who had just two fights in the UFC before he stepped in against Manuwa. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FXX and UFC Fight Pass.

Manuwa was in line for a title shot and had verbally sparred with Cormier after two straight knockout wins.

Russian Federation hits back over sanctions, orders USA diplomats to leave
The U.S. administration also expelled 35 Russia diplomats and seized two Russian compounds in the States of NY and Maryland. But the legislation cleared both the House and Senate by wide margins, indicating any presidential veto would be overridden.

The result leaves Manuwa's title chances in tatters while Oezdemir may have just become the most exciting fighter in the 205-pound division. Another left hook, this time of the longer variety, landed as Manuwa tried to escape Oezdemir's rush and the British light-heavyweight was sent careening to the floor, off of which he banged the back of his head.

After dusting Manuwa, Oezdemir spoke with Joe Rogan and somewhat unsurprisingly called out the victor of Cormier vs. Jones 2. He followed him to the canvas and finished the fight with hammer fists rendering Manuwa unconscious.

After the fight, Oezdemir joked with Joe Rogan, "I don't know what's happening with my hands, but that's dynamite!" It drives me and gives me a challenge when I'm able to do this. Being fully aware of that position, Oezdemir told Rogan during his post-fight interview that he wants the victor of the main event. "I put on a really good performance, and that's three in a row against top-10 guys, so yeah, I think I deserve the shot".
