Former fighter Jimi Manuwa showed his confidence in Johnny Walker, which stood out as the great promise of his former division.

Retired since June, the English said he observes everything happens in the octagon and said Walker could beat Jon Jones in the future.

The statements were made in an interview with BJPenn.com:

“I think Johnny Walker will give the best fight of his life to Jon Jones. Jon uses his physical wingspan very well against all his rivals. Most of the division is shorter than him, and he has problems with people of the same height and explosives, ” said Jimi.

The Englishman said that to make history to beat Jones who has only one defeat in his career, the Brazilian will have to have excellent demolitions since the champion uses grappling a lot with aggressive rivals.

“If Johnny Walker takes Jon to the canvas, I think he wins. He is a person who could cause him more problems, ” said the former fighter.

Walker debuted at the UFC in November last year, where he made three fights in four months with the organization. In addition to being active, the Brazilian destroyed all his rivals in less than three minutes. Which ensures its position in the ranking and the possibility of fighting with the best of the division.

In UFC 244, he will have his fourth fight, in front of Corey Anderson. In case, who wins it will be closer to the top of the division and it would be only time to enter as a future challenger to the belt.

The Brazilian already said in some interviews that he is ready to challenge Jon Jones. In UFC 237, he was recovering from a shoulder injury but said he could make history.

“I’m ready to face Jon Jones. All I need is to recover from my shoulder and have a good preparation. But I’m ready I have a lot of technique and experience for that. I don’t think he has anything that surprises me,” said the fighter.

Walker has a 17-3 record and is on a nine-win streak. He has not lost since 2016.
