Ryan Jimmo made people forget about all those decision wins of his for at least one night. Jimmo scored a record-tying seven-second knockout victory over Anthony Perosh on the prelim portion of UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao from his native country of Canada Saturday.
Here is a complete review of the fight, as posted by FightLine on Saturday:
Light heavyweights Anthony Perosh (13-6) and Ryan Jimmo (16-1) compete in our next match. The referee will be Josh Rosenthal.
Round 1: Well, for all those that said Ryan Jimmo fights are bathroom breaks, you just got proved wrong. Jimmo stormed out, delivered a huge right hand that floored Perosh and this one is over. Perosh’s mouth was left open, and Jimmo celebrated much to the delight of the Canadian fans. The unofficial time is seven seconds, tying Duane Ludwig’s record-setting KO in terms of quickest ever.

During the post-fight press conference, Jimmo said, “Yeah, I guess (I did just send a big (expletive) you to all the haters). It looks more impressive, I think, because I used to be so boring, so all the better.”
