A pair of win streaks continued Friday night in the Great White North as Drew Fickett and Ryan Jimmo both cruised to victory in their respective bouts at “MFC 28: Supremacy”. The performances marked Fickett’s fifth and Jimmo’s fourteenth consecutive victories though both finishes were as different as could be.
Fickett tapped HIT Squad member Matt Veach less than a minute into the opening round after being taken down, then working his rubber guard into position for a fight-ending Armbar. The showing marked the thirtieth submission victory Fickett’s career and his 41st overall with past success against a number of notable adversaries including Kurt Pellegrino, Josh Neer, and Josh Koscheck. It was his first fight since winning a trio of bouts on a single night under the Shine Fights banner this past September.
On the other end of the spectrum, Jimmo battered opponent Dwayne Lewis in their light heavyweight title-fight to the point ringside officials were forced to stop things after Lewis’ orbital bone was broken to the point a mouse looking more like a NYC sewer rat had formed around his eye. The championship-winning stoppage came a little more than midway through the third round and continued an impressive run for the Canadian who hasn’t lost since his professional debut more than four years ago.
