UFC on FX 1 books Ryan Jimmo vs Karlos Vemola for Jan. 20 in Nashville

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has a new fighter debuting at its inaugural UFC on FX 1 event on Jan. 20, 2012, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

He's a pretty "Big Deal."

Ryan Jimmo, of Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC) fame, will make his highly-anticipated debut against Karlos Vemola when the UFC invades "Music City." Jimmo was pounded out in his debut fight back in 2007 before erupting for a 15-fight winning streak, where he now stands at 16-1.

Standing in his way is Vemola, who has struggled under the Zuffa banner after terrorizing the European circuit from 2008-10. "The Terminator" is 1-2 as a UFC employee (7-2 overall) with his lone win coming at the expense of Seth Petruzelli back at UFC 122.

UFC on FX, which will mark the promotion's inaugural effort on the FOX-owned network, will be headlined by two top lightweight contenders, Jim Miller vs. Melvin Guillard, who both had their 155-pound title-challenging aspirations dashed with disappointing losses in their most recent performances.

Also penciled in for the FX fight card is a heavyweight battle between Pat Barry vs. Christian Morecraft, as well as a welterweight slugfest that pits Josh Neer vs. Duane Ludwig.
