Canadian light heavyweight Ryan Jimmo will apparently have to wait a little longer before making his UFC debut after suffering an injury while training for a bout next weekend against Karlos Vemola at UFC on FX: Miller vs. Guillard. No specifics were given on his condition and it is unknown whether the UFC will seek a replacement or not given the January 20 date attached to the event.
News of the card’s change was confirmed by the UFC. It was also revealed Reza Madadi had withdrawn from a bout against Fabricio Camoes with the organization remaining hopeful a 155er can be found to fill in.
Jimmo has racked up sixteen straight victories since falling in his first MMA fight nearly five years ago. The 30-year old has spent the last few years as part of the MFC roster where he earned the divisional title with success against UFC veterans like Marvin Eastman, Wilson Gouveia, and Rameu Thierry Sokoudjou.
UFC on FX: Miller vs. Guillard is headlined by former lightweight contenders Jim Miller and Melvin Guillard getting it on in the Octagon with other match-ups including Pat Barry vs. Christian Morecraft, Charlie Brenneman vs. Daniel Roberts, and Duane Ludwig vs. Josh Neer.
