UFC Hamburg featured an interesting throwdown of light heavyweights as upcoming Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith took on veteran Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua.

Manuwa expressed his thoughts about the division’s champ Daniel Cormier who now also happens to be the heavyweight champion. His views were similar to what other light heavyweights think of this scenario.

“I think definitely, 100 percent, he should vacate or defend his light heavyweight belt next. He should vacate light heavyweight and go to heavyweight and fight Brock Lesnar,” Manuwa said at UFC Fight Night 134 in Hamburg, Germany, where he met with members of the media.

“I would do the same if I was DC. It’s the money fight for him. He wants a lot of money before he retires, so I don’t blame him for it. He’s a great fighter. Congrats to him on his win against Stipe.”
