UFC Quick Quote: Ryan Jimmo sent a big F you to all the haters with seven second knockout


"Yeah, I guess (I did just send a big F you to all the haters out there). It looks more impressive, I think, because I used to be so boring, so, all the better. I visualized it for a long time. I knew this was coming. I don't know how that sounds but I've seen this every day when I close my eyes, so it was not unexpected."

-- Former Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Ryan Jimmo made his debut inside the Octagon on the FX broadcasted portion of the UFC 149: "Faber vs. Barao" preliminary card at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and he did so with a bang. A very short one. Jimmo planted Anthony Perosh and finished him in just seven seconds, tying the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history. Considering his reputation in the mixed martial arts (MMA) world as one of the sport's most boring fighters, this may very well have helped save his career. Will he go on to great success with UFC? That remains to be seen, but he's off to the best possible start.
