Ryan Jimmo couldn't have asked for a better Octagon debut. Fighting on the UFC 149 undercard, Jimmo needed just seven seconds to flatten Anthony Perosh with an overhand right and extend his impressive win streak to 17 straight.
The native Canadian pocketed $65,000 for his ‘Knockout of the Night' performance.
"He's a big, strong guy, so I went at him," Jimmo ecstatically said afterward. "I knew if I throw some heavy leather, he was going to be on the bad end of it."
Undercard fighters Bryan Caraway and Mitch Gagnon, and pay-per-view opener Matt Riddle were the remaining bonus winners. Both Caraway and Gagnon took home $65,000 for their ‘Fight of the Night' brawl, while Riddle secured his ‘Submission of the Night' bonus with a slick third-round arm-triangle of Chris Clements.
"I made sure I banged a little, but I got back to my roots to get that 'W,'" Riddle later quipped.
