Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac On Tap For UFC 161

Jimmo Re-Signs with MFCAnother bout for the upcoming UFC 161 Canadian event will see light heavyweights Ryan ‘The Real Deal’ Jimmo (17-2) take on Igor ‘The Duke’ Pokrajac (25-9) this June.

News of the bout was first announced by The Canadian Press (@NeilMDavidson) and confirmed by UFC Canada officials (@UFC_CA).

The two will likely meet on the television broadcasted preliminary card for UFC 161.

UFC 161: Barao vs. Wineland is expected to take place on June 15, 2013 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The event will see UFC interim bantamweight champ Renana Barao take on former WEC title holder Eddie Wineland.

Jimmo saw his seventeen fight win streak come to an end last month after a decision loss in London, England. After dominating the first round ‘The Real Deal’ lost steam and saw opponent James Te-Huna turn things around to pick up a unanimous decision win at UFC on FUEL TV 7. Prior to that Jimmo debuted with the UFC, tying the record for the fastest knockout with a seven second finish over Anthony Perosh at UFC 149.

Pokrajac will look for his first win in three matches after going 0-1 (1NC) in his last couple of bouts. The Croatian carries a 4-4 (1NC) record overall in the Octagon with a “No Contest” result versus Joey Beltran at UFC on FX 6 after ‘The Mexicutioner’ tested positive for a banned result. Before that, ‘The Duke’ lost via second round submission to Vinny Magalhaes at UFC 152 and won his last bout at UFC on FUEL TV 3 with a decision against Fabio Maldonado.
