Ryan Jimmo to Face Perosh at UFC 149
Jimmo (16-1) was originally scheduled to face Karlos Vemola on UFC on FX 1, but had to pull out due to injury. Now he will face Anthony Perosh in Calgary this summer. Jimmo is Canada’s #1 Light-Heavyweight and ‘The Big Deal’ hopes to make it 17 consecutive wins in his UFC debut.
Jimmo’s opponent Anthony Perosh (13-6) is on a three fight win streak in the UFC. Perosh most recently derailed the UFC debut of Nick Penner, another top ranked Canadian Light-Heavyweight on the UFC on FX 2 card.
Jimmo and Perosh join a card headlined by Erik Koch challenging Jose Aldo for his Featherweight title. Other Canadians scheduled for the card include Antonio Carvalho, Mitch Gagnon, Mitch Clarke, and Nick Ring.
