Ryan Jimmo to Face Perosh at UFC 149

By:

Ryan Jimmo will make his long-awaited debut in the UFC at UFC 149 on July 21, as announced by Sportsnet.

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.

    Is Perosh the Canadian killer? Jimmo should be able to beat him on the feet. He just has to avoid Perosh on the ground but that’s easier said than done. I’ll go Jimmo decision.

    His mobility is way too good to be taken down by this guy.

    This is a much tougher fight than Vemola IMO, but it should be a much more repectable win for Jimmo.

    FINISH HIM JIMMO!

    I think Perosh will have a harder time catching Jimmo then he did CroCop with a takedown or even a big head shot to get it to the ground. As a result, Jimmo takes this.
