March 18, 2017 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– Following his victory over Corey Anderson at UFC Fight Night 107, Jimi Manuwa spoke with mmajunkie.com, here are the highlights…

On Jon Jones: “I’m not interested in Jon Jones,” he said. “Jon Jones takes steroids, and he’s been banned for steroids. Before, I was a big fan of Jon and the things he’s done in the octagon. But he’s been suspended for one year because he’s had issues before. He’s a great fighter, and I respect him. But he’s been done for steroids, and that taints everything that he’s done. So I’m not really interested. When he comes back, I’ll fight him. No problem. But I’m focused on the belt right now, and that’s the winner of (the UFC 210 headliner).”

On What’s Next For Him: “To me, whatever happens, happens,” Manuwa said. “I will be fighting the elite fighters of the world, and we’ll see what happens. He’s back in July, and (Cormier and Johnson) are fighting next month, so the fight could be made before he comes back. I’m going to fly to Las Vegas to meet with Dana, and we’ll see what happens.”
