So What Exactly *Did* Jimi Manuwa Do to Ryan Jimmo’s Leg?

This might be old news by now, but if you recall, Ryan Jimmo‘s left leg seemed to implode in the second round of his Fight Night 30 scrap with Jimi Manuwa last weekend. Being that something similar happened in Manuwa’s previous scrap with Cyrille Diabate, I immediately speculated that Manuwa must be some sort of demonic scanner (obviously). All three of the man’s fights have ended with either a doctor’s intervention, a freak injury, or some combination of the two.

The point is, when the list of medical suspensions for Fight Night 30 were released earlier today, one would expect Jimmo’s name to appear right near the top. Possible reasons: torn hamstring, blown ACL, touch of the Plague, etc. In any case, one would be wrong (via The UG):

Ryan Jimmo: 7 days no contact

Jimi Manuwa: 180 days no fighting, needs x-ray and ultrasound

I’m not saying this supports my “Jimi Manuwa is physically capable of shooting mind bullets” theory, but it basically supports my ”Jimi Manuwa is physically capable of shooting mind bullets” theory. In fact, it appears that Manuwa’s mind has become extraordinary to his own detriment, as he somehow walked away from Fight Night 30 with a 180 day suspension. A telekinesis-induced brain aneurysm, perhaps? Perhaps, you guys.

The full list of suspensions are after the jump.

Michael Kuiper: 7 days no contact
Bradley Scott: 7 days no contact
Jim Hettes:  7 days no contact
Robert Whiteford: 7 days no contact
Cole Miller: 21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Andy Ogle: 21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Jessica Andrade: 21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Rosemary Sexton: 60 days no contact, 90 days no fighting
Andrew Craig:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Luke Barnatt:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Piotr Hallman: 7 days no contact
Al Iaquinta:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
John Lineker: 7 days no contact
Phil Harris:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Nicholas Musoke:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Alessio Sakara:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Jonathan Tuck: 7 days no contact
Norman Parke:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Melvin Guillard: 7 days no contact
Ross Pearson:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Mark Munoz:  21 days no contact, 30 days no fighting
Lyoto Machida: 7 days no contact

Is anyone else disappointed that it wasn’t Manuwa who Mayhem Miller started trash-talking in that bar? We’d have to rewrite our comeuppance Roundtable (and probably a eulogy for Miller), but it’d be so worth it.
