After a decorated career with the Canadian promotion MFC, Ryan Jimmo made a memorable UFC debut. He knocked out Anthony Perosh in seven seconds at UFC 149 in Calgary on Saturday.
Light heavyweight Jimmo took two steps in at Perosh before unloading a massive right hand that knocked Perosh right against the fence. He followed up with a strike on the ground, but it wasn’t needed. Referee Josh Rosenthal stopped the fight, and Jimmo’s win streak was extended to 17.
“I’m very happy, Joe. I’m very happy,” Jimmo said to commentator Joe Rogan. “He’s a big strong guy, so I went at him.”
