Volkan Oezdemir Makes Quick Work of Jimi Manuwa (UFC 214 Results)

Oezdemir (15-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) stunned Jimi Manuwa (17-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) in the clinch before knocking him to the mat with a left hand just 42 seconds into the opening round.

The main card aired on pay-per-view and the preliminary portion of the card aired on FXX and UFC Fight Pass.

Jon Jones, who knocked out Daniel Cormier in the third round to win back the light heavyweight title, earned a $50,000 bonus for his victory.

Oezdemir, who is now 3-0 in the UFC, was quick to demand the victor of Cormier vs. Jones 2, a fight which topped the bill at the Honda Center. After this win, the 27-year-old Swiss fighter will certainly be in the conversation for a title shot. There was no feeling out process here as Oezdemir looked to quickly land punches as Manuwa grabbed an under hook to control the pace.

Manuwa will now have to go back to the drawing board after snapping a two-fight knockout streak.

China's Xi wants 'world class' army to beat all enemies
DF-31AG is an intercontinental ballistic missile with a reported range of more than 10,000 kilometers (more than 6,200 miles). Xi said the Chinese army must "unswervingly stick to... the Party's absolute leadership".

The referee stopped the contest with Oezdemir baring over Manuwa, but the beaten fighter was severely dazed.

If Jones' post-fight reflection wasn't enough to break you down, then what about the fantastic respect for his opponent, Daniel Cormier?

After the fight, Oezdemir joked with Joe Rogan, "I don't know what's happening with my hands, but that's dynamite!"

The co-main event of the evening featured a welterweight title fight between champion Tyron Woodley and jiu-jitsu ace Demian Maia, and while the fans weren't all too pleased with the bout, Woodley retained his title via unanimous decision. "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".
