Jimmo Returns Against Te Huna at UFC on Fuel TV 7
Ryan Jimmo will look to build off the strength of a UFC record tying Knockout at UFC 149 in Calgary when he returns to the Octagon to face James Te Huna at UFC on Fuel TV 7 in London, England. The UFC announced the Light Heavyweight bout early last night but it was not clear if it would take place on the main card or the prelims. UFC on Fox 7 will be headlined by an Interim Featherweight Title fight between Renan Barao and Michael McDonald.
After an average fight time of 17 minutes and 36 seconds over his seven MFC fights leading up to his UFC Debut, Jimmo burst onto the scene with a somewhat unexpected 7 second knockout over Anthony Perosh on the preliminary card at UFC 149 in Calgary. Since his professional debut when he was stopped by strikes by then current Edmonton Eskimos Defensive End Adam Braidwood, Jimmo has rattled off 17 straight victories defeating the likes of Dwayne Lewis, Marvin Eastman, Emanuel Newton, Wilson Gouveia and Sokoudjou. Jimmo captured the MFC Light Heavyweight Title in a rematch against Dwayne Lewis and subsequently defended it against Zak Cummings, Gouveia and Sokoudjou.
James Te Huna will be riding a hot streak of his own into this bout, winning three straight and nine of his last ten with the only loss in that stretch coming to possibly the #1 Contender in the Light Heavyweight divison, Alexander Gustafsson. Te Huna has finished three of his four UFC opponents by some form of knockout, defeating the likes of Igor Pokrajac, Ricardo Romero, Aaron Rosa and taking a decision over a durable Joey Beltran.
