Video: Ryan Jimmo blasts Anthony Perosh at UFC 149, ties record for fastest knockout ever

Ryan Jimmo made his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut last night (July 21, 2012) at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, taking on Octagon veteran Anthony Perosh in a Light Heavyweight affair. Jimmo earned his big break with the world's leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion thanks in large part to his success in Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC), where he reigned as the 205-pound kingpin. He didn't necessarily do so, however, with an iron fist. On the contrary, he did it by outpointing his opponents and earning a reputation as boring fighter who was content to stick and move and let the scorecards determine the outcome. He went along way, in a short amount of time (seven seconds), to erase those perceptions with a "Knockout of the Night" performance against "The Hippo," landing an overhand right moments into the bout and turning out the Aussie's lights. In addition to a $65,000 bonus, it was also impressive enough to get his name in the UFC history books alongside Todd Duffee, Duane Ludwig and Chan Sung Jung, for the fastest finish ever inside the eight-walled cage. That's kind of a "Big Deal."
