Anthony "Rumble" Johnson needed a win against Jimi Manuwa at UFC 191: Johnson vs. Dodson after losing badly in his title fight to Daniel Cormier and he got it. Johnson smashed Manuwa early in the second with a huge right hand to the jaw that stiffened Manuwa

Johnson came out swinging and quickly hurt Jimi Manuwa with several battering punches before slamming him down and controlling position for most of the first round. Manuwa burst back onto his feet towards the end of the round and landed a couple of minor shots.

Johnson came out hard again in the second, landing a left kick to the Brit's body and a right hand on the chin that finished Manuwa. Manuwa stiffened up on the ground and it was all over.
