Ryan Jimmo Vs. Igor Pokrajac Set For UFC 161 In Canada

According to Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press, Ryan Jimmo and Igor Pokrajac have agreed to meet later this year at UFC 161: Barao vs. Wineland. UFC officials promised the addition of several bouts featuring Canadian fighters last week for the event.

The card goes down June 15 from Winnipeg’s MTS Centre. The main event features Renan Barao-Eddie Wineland for Barao’s interim UFC bantamweight title.

Jimmo (17-2) was defeated by James Te Huna earlier this year. He debuted in the UFC and earned a seven-second knockout of Anthony Perosh last July in Canada.

Pokrajac (25-9) lost to Joey Beltran last December, but the bout was changed to a no-contest after Beltran failed the post-fight drug test. He is 3-1-1 in his last five, including wins over Fabio Maldonado and Krzysztof Soszynski.
